SJTA TO TRANSFORM CONCESSIONS EXPERIENCE AT ATLANTIC CITY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT AND BRING NEW OFFERINGS

Egg Harbor Township, NJ – November 20, 2019 — Passengers at Atlantic City International Airport (ACY) will soon be able to experience new shopping, dining and drinking options offered by its concession partners Hudson Group and OHM Concession Group. These new concepts are part of the Airport’s strategy to provide a better overall experience for both loyal and first-time passengers utilizing ACY. The new offerings will include national brands as well as provide a local feel through a combination of new construction and remodeling of existing facilities.

The SJTA’s Board of Commissioners voted today to award a new 10-year contract to the Hudson Group Retail, LLC for travel convenience and specialty retail & food concessions at ACY. The Hudson Group will have a Hudson and Brookstone location before the security checkpoint. There will also be three options for passengers post-security, highlighted by a Hudson and Dunkin’. Yes, ACY will now run on Dunkin’.

“Hudson is extremely proud to be a part of the retail expansion at Atlantic City International Airport. This opportunity allows us to bring nationally recognized store brands, designed and inspired with the look and feel of iconic ACY themes,” said Roger Fordyce, Hudson CEO. “We thank the SJTA Board of Commissioners for their ongoing partnership, and we are honored to be part of the Airport’s concession refresh efforts.”

In addition, construction has begun on the new Beach House Restaurant & Bar, which will bring the best of the Jersey shore to ACY. This is a result of an agreement with OHM Concession Group that the SJTA’s Board of Commissioners awarded in 2018 for food and beverage concessions. Another concept from OHM will be The Great American Bagel & Bakery with locations both before security and post-security.

“We are extremely pleased that our recently announced partner, the Hudson Group, will be working to deliver an exciting new retail program at ACY, while we move toward the opening of OHM’s permanent locations, the Beach House and Great American Bagel at pre-and post-security locations. This comprehensive overhaul of the concessions program at ACY is sure to provide the passengers, visitors and staff of the Airport with a world-class experience. We look forward to collaborating with the Hudson team and our Airport partners,” said Milan Patel, President & CEO of OHM Concession Group.

“The SJTA is thrilled to have entered into agreements with both the Hudson Group and OHM Concession Group to bring these new concepts to ACY,” said Airport Director Tim Kroll. “We continuously strive to bring our passengers the best experience possible through a variety of brands while maintaining a local, welcoming feel. This partnership reaffirms that commitment.”
