About Airport Retail
Airport Retail About the business


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

We currently operate 40 outlets in 8 locations and employ over 500 staff.

Our portfolio of concessions combines:

  • Bespoke own brand outlets, tailor-made to a specific need
  • Licensed franchises of some of Australia's most popular fast food outlets
  • Partnerships with Australian Masterchefs - combining the skills and experiences of some of the country's top chefs 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.


Airport Retail Enterprises is one of the great survivors of the airport food & beverage business
