HMSHost and Balducci’s Put Taste First in Philadelphia International Airport

Global restaurateur and the ‘Food Lover’s Market’ partner on new location for the benefit of travelers

PHILADELPHIA — Global restaurateur HMSHost and Balducci’s are putting taste first in Philadelphia International Airport’s Concourse C. HMSHost officially opened the doors to this new Balducci’s market at the end of March 2017 to provide high quality food options for travelers in the area.

“The Philadelphia International Airport has been a great partner in bringing Balducci’s to travelers and it has been very exciting working with Balducci’s to provide the tasty, healthy options that they are so well-known for,” said HMSHost Vice President of Business Development Bryan Loden. “It is brands like this, which are truly passionate about food, that HMSHost enjoys working with so much.”

Balducci’s is a specialty food retailer and marketplace concept where guests can expect to find an abundance of only the highest quality products from all over the world. Balducci’s in the airport is an express version of the marketplace store concepts that can be found in neighborhood shopping centers up and down the east coast from Virginia to Connecticut. Private label pre-packaged goods, customizable gourmet hand-crafted sandwiches, noodle stations, hot soups, and freshly prepared salads are featured to give travelers wholesome, great-tasting, and convenient eating options when visiting the airport.

All of HMSHost’s operations in Philadelphia International Airport including Balducci’s can be viewed on the company’s location finder.
