In with the new: food and beverage concessions makeover at OAK
2019 will be a year of tremendous change for passengers at Oakland International, as the Airport’s entire food and beverage program will be replaced with the winners of last year’s competitive bid process.
The transition is underway, and will introduce a more local flair to the in-terminal experience.
Four new concessionaires will transform the slate of available Food and Beverage choices at OAK, with changes underway and continuing throughout 2019. OAK’s retail establishments as well as the two Vino Volo locations will not be included in the modified program and will maintain their respective operations at OAK.
The dining transformation at Oakland International will introduce local favorites A-16 Pizzeria, Calavera Taqueria & Agave Bar, Cosecha, District, Farley’s Café, Luka’s Tap Room & Lounge, Oaklandish Coffee Collective, Southie and Tay-Ho; hometown-themed Oakland A’s Club House; regionally-born Peet’s Coffee and Sierra Nevada; and national brand Subway. OAK will also introduce Artisan Market and “The Hangar,” a refectory-style addition in Terminal 2 featuring Drakes Brewing, Brown Sugar Kitchen Counter, and Red Bay Coffee.
Oakland International Airport’s Food & Beverage Program represents a significant departure from the current offerings at OAK by incorporating a greatly increased presence of local concepts. When fully implemented, the refreshed program will create a stronger sense of place within OAK’s terminal facility.
The Concessions Opportunity awardees are in contract with the Port of Oakland for a term of 10 years and 11 months through Dec. 31, 2029. All concepts are expected to be operational by the end of 2019.
