“With a record 58.3 million passengers last year, Denver International Airport continues to see substantial growth that is driving an increased demand for exceptional shopping and dining options,” said Patrick Heck, DIA’s chief commercial officer.
“The addition of these concessions won’t just add much needed capacity to serve passengers, but they will thoughtfully add a variety of local Colorado flavors and national brands to our growing lineup.”
DIA operates 77 restaurants, 43 shops, and 45 cart and kiosk locations. In 2016, restaurants, stores and other services generated nearly $370.5 million in sales.
