Delaware North and Chef Allen Susser to Introduce First Kosher Meal Offerings at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (September 16, 2013) – Delaware North Companies Travel Hospitality Services, and award-winning Chef Allen Susser will introduce the first kosher meal offerings at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) beginning Sept. 24.
 
The new pre-packaged food consisting of kosher turkey and tuna salad sandwiches, Mediterranean and Caesar salads and a variety of gourmet muffins, prepared by Kosher Central Market of Hollywood, Fla. under supervision of the Orthodox Rabbinic Board of Broward and Palm Beach Counties, will be available at Chef Allen’s 2 Go restaurant located in Terminal 3, Concourse F.  The products, individually wrapped and sealed with designated kosher labeling, were previewed to media and Broward County Aviation Department officials during the Sept. 12 grand opening celebration of Delaware North’s and  Lauderdale F&B Partners’ food court featuring Jamba Juice, Pei Wei Asian Diner and Steak ‘n Shake Signature. 
 
“I’ve been in the airport for quite a while with Chef Allen’s 2 Go making sandwiches and salads that really focus on the quality and everyday freshness of the ingredients and putting them together,” said Susser. “Kosher Central Market knows the neighborhood and the standard of quality we were seeking. There's a large population that's traveling that does want kosher, and there are others who it will appeal to such as those who observe Hallal or vegetarians.”
 
The restaurant and food additions are part of an airport-wide renovation and expansion and are a direct response to traffic growth.
 
“With the introduction of Chef Allen’s 2 Go kosher offerings in the upcoming weeks, our successful Food Network Kitchen that we opened in 2012, and our newest food court featuring Pei Wei, Steak ‘n Shake Signature, and Jamba Juice, we are continuously focused on offering a wide variety of options to travelers,” said Matt King, president of Delaware North Companies Travel Hospitality Services.
 
According to the Broward County Aviation Department, 2012 figures represented the highest total number of passengers served for the calendar year with 23 and one half million passengers passing through; a growth of approximately one percent over 2011. While several airlines serving FLL added capacity and new service which helped boost overall growth for 2012, jetBlue Airways, in particular, showed the most growth among the carriers with an 11.4% increase (Chef Allen’s 2 Go and the new food court are both located on the concourse served, in part, by jetBlue Airways).
 
Travel Hospitality Services – a division of Delaware North Companies, one of the largest and most admired privately held hospitality companies in the world – operates in more than 25 airports across the globe, and is the sole food and beverage provider at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
 
Lauderdale F&B Partners is a joint venture between Delaware North Companies Travel Hospitality Services and FLL F&B Group LLC.
