Midway Welcomes New Airport Dining Concept
Sarfatty Associates recently completed a new concept in contemporary airport dining at Midway International Airport for Midway Airport Concession. The first of its kind in airport dining, Sprigs is a fresh, contemporary, salad concept that offers customers a variety of healthy choices. The Sprigs Concourse B location at Midway was built with sustainable design elements including bamboo.
"We are constantly looking for ways to enhance
Chicago's airports by providing new and exciting dining and retail
options for travelers," said Commissioner Rosemarie S. Andolino. "This
new business not only adds more flavor and healthy choices to our
concessions program, it also creates new job opportunities."
The CDA's internationally recognized green airport
initiatives continue to expand into all of the functions of Chicago's
airports - including concessions. All new airport restaurants and shops
must be designed and built in accordance with the guidelines of the CDA
Sustainable Airport Manual. The restaurants at O'Hare and Midway are
also incorporating sustainability into their everyday operations by
recycling materials such as cooking oils and packaging, and utilizing
energy efficient equipment.
Sarfatty Associates had previously completed Lalo's,
Reilly's Daughter, Miller Pub, Pegasus and other retail/food service
projects at Midway International Airport.
