HMSHost Receives 10-Year Extension at Clinton National Airport Little Rock

HMSHost to open new Chili’s and Chick-fil-A locations

LITTLE ROCK, AR — HMSHost, along with ACDBE partner JQ Enterprises, Inc., has been awarded a 10-year food & beverage contract extension to continue operating dining locations at Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport in Little Rock. The extension will run from 2019 through 2028 and will also include the addition of Chili’s and Chick-fil-A, as part of the airport’s concourse renovation.

“We are very excited to continue partnering with Clinton National Airport to provide dining to Little Rock travelers,” said HMSHost Vice President of Business Development Michael Price. “With the addition of well known national favorites Chili’s and Chick-fil-A, travelers will have even more options to enjoy before taking flight.”

“The addition of Chick-fil-A and Chili’s is the latest way that we’re designing the airport experience around our passengers,” said Bryan Malinowski, C.M., Clinton National Airport Deputy Executive Director. “We will soon offer four widely popular national brands, which is uncommon for an airport of our size.\"

The new Chili’s restaurant and Chick-fil-A will be located post-security. HMSHost will also continue to operate several other dining locations. A full list of HMSHost-operated dining locations can be found here.
