About Airport Retail
Airport Retail About the business


ARE is a privately-owned company which has operated leading Food & Beverage outlets in Australian airports since 1971 and most recently in the UK.

We currently operate 50 outlets in locations worldwide and employ over 850 staff.

Our portfolio of concessions are strategically located at some of the world’s major airports and consists of:

  • Bespoke own brand outlets, tailor-made to a specific need
  • Licensed franchises of some of Australia's most popular fast food outlets
  • Partnerships with several of the world’s best chefs - combining their skills and experience with our onsite venue management skills

Running multiple concessions requires a deep understanding of venue traffic and strong branding to attract customers. We have the expertise and resources to create the ideal offering for any situation. While our core business is airports, we also have experience operating food and beverage concessions at other locations.
