More concessionaires submit proposals for airport spaces

More concessionaires submitted proposals for restaurant spots at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, as the city of Atlanta repeats the contracting process for a major concessions overhaul.

The city of Atlanta last month said it would toss out all of the proposals it collected for new concessions and would start the process over, because 41 of 95 proposals submitted were missing required documents or information. Many of the same concessionaires submitted proposals again.

The airport collected proposals Wednesday for four small packages of food and beverage outlets. Some of the packages attracted a few more proposals than in the first round of solicitations. One package attracted 16 proposals, another attracted 19, a third drew 18 proposals and the last one had 13.

The solicitation is part of a broader revamp of restaurants and shops at the airport, along with preparations for the new international terminal to open next spring.
