Atlanta Airport restaurant operator joins ICE program

Hojeij Branded Foods, which operates 22 restaurants at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, recently became the first airport restaurant operator in the country to be certified under the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s IMAGE program.

Hojeij-operated restaurants at Hartsfield-Jackson include Varasano’s, P.F. Chang’s, Gordon Biersch, Cat Cora’s Kitchen, Goldberg’s Bagels & Deli, Great Wraps, Chick-fil-A and others.
