FIVE-DOLLAR MENU AT PHILA. INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
Philadelphia Business Journal - by Peter Van Allen Staff Writer
The restaurants at Philadelphia International Airport are launching a $5 meal program for cost-conscious fliers.
The “Wow! $5 Chow” program will be available at some 50 restaurants in the airport.
Sample offers include eggs-and-coffee at Jet Rock Bar & Grill, a basil-and-mozzarella sandwich at Cosi and dessert and coffee at Todd English’s Figs Restaurant.
“Offering the WOW! $5 CHOW! menu will allow our passengers to stretch their travel dollars a little further and encourage them to explore the dining options at our airport,” said Clarence LeJeune, president of the Philadelphia Marketplace Food & Shops.
Retail operations at the airport are managed by MarketPlace Development Inc., a Newton, Mass.-based retail-development firm.
A similar discounting program is being offered at New York’s LaGuardia Airport, whose retail operations are also handled by Marketplace Development.
