Concessions Refresh Program

Being an award-winning airport means keeping the experience at Indianapolis International Airport (IND) fresh and meaningful for both leisure and business travelers alike. Having the best quality concessionaires and vendors at IND plays a large role in ensuring that this happens.

If you are an owner or general manager of the following industries, this program is for you. 

  • Restaurants and eateries
  • Wineries and breweries
  • Retailers and gift shops
  • Suppliers of the above-mentioned
  • Businesses who might want to have their products sold at IND, but not run a store
  • Architects and designers who might design a concessionaire’s new space

A number of existing concessionaire and retailer leases will expire in 2018, which presents an opportunity for the IAA to take food, beverage and retail in a fresh direction, one that shouts "We are Indianapolis."

Opportunity for Food, Beverage and Retail

The Concessions Refresh Program is an opportunity for the IAA to take food, beverage and retail in a fresh direction, one that shouts "We are Indianapolis." Businesses eligible for the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) or Airport-Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) programs are encouraged to attend. The IAA encourages local participation; current experience operating concessions at an airport is not required.

Representing Indy and Indiana

The Concession Refresh program is intended to attract “sense of place” retailers and food-and-beverage providers to the airport, as a means of showcasing local foods, beverages and brands that directly represent the Indianapolis culture and community. The IAA seeks to provide an immersion experience for travelers, so that when they land at IND, they are surrounded by the sights, sounds and tastes that comprise the Hoosier experience.
