We have over 40 years of experience operating successful outlets and have accumulated a wealth of expertise and resources.

We have repeatedly broken new ground. ARE was:

  • The first to offer freshly cooked meals at Australian airports
  • The first to bring roasted and freshly ground coffee to Australian airports
  • The first to develop food and beverage brands to operate exclusively in a food court environment - this changed the face of Australian airport food and beverage
  • At the forefront of bringing fine dining to Australian airports, through Cafe Vue, Bar Pulpo and Movida@the Airport

We continue to create innovative and unique experiences for the airport traveller.

Well-managed, Efficient and Sustainable
We recognise the importance of good staff and are proud of our team. ARE invests significant resources recruiting and training the highest quality staff. Leading the workforce is a committed, stable and vastly experienced management team.

Our size means we are able to source a wide range of quality products and provide choice and competitive retail pricing across our outlets.

First Rate Customer Experience
Ultimately, our business starts and ends with our customers.

We focus on all aspects of our customer interaction - from first impressions through to choice, price, service, cleanliness and of course quality of food and beverage offering.

In 2013, we were awarded the inaugural Organisation Customer Service Achievement Award by Melbourne Airport.
