Herschel Walker wants concession spot at airport

He was a UGA and pro football star, posed nude for ESPN and took a swing at mixed-martial arts.

Now Herschel Walker wants to hydrate travelers making their way through Atlanta’s airport.

Walker and Creative Food Group Inc. announced plans Tuesday to open a "high energy" sports bar called The Greatest Bulldog. They are hoping for concession spots on Concourses T and D at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

The city has launched a massive overhaul of the airport's concessions, and The Greatest Bulldog is one of several businesses Creative wants to open in the coming year.

Other companies seeking airport deals include The Varsity, South City Kitchen, Ecco, the Park Tavern at Piedmont Park and the Original El Taco.

Walker is no stranger to food service. He founded Savannah-based Renaissance Man Food Service in 1999. Among the company’s creations is “Herschel’s Famous 34” line of chicken and ribs.

The airport menu would also feature dishes that reflect where the Heisman Trophy winner has played football, such as "Georgia Pecan Brownies," "Tony Luke's Cheesesteak from Philly,” Dallas-inspired BBQ and Minnesota's fresh catch salmon.

Walker played with the New Jersey Generals, Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants.

Patrons would be surrounded by everything Herschel.

“Tabletops will display memorabilia depicting Walker's many NCAA records, and a video montage of his greatest athletic feats from football to bobsledding to martial arts will be shown. Autographed menus, footballs, helmets and related items will also be available for sale,” according to a Creative news release.

Creative also has concessions at Newark Liberty International Airport, Boston Logan International Airport and New York Penn Station.
