Local sandwich and barbecue restaurants, popular brewery, coming to the airport
ATLANTA – Paradies Lagardère, the travel retail and restaurateur leader in North America, was awarded a food and beverage package at Denver International Airport (DEN). Brothers BBQ, Snarf’s Sandwiches and Breckenridge Brewery will open in A Concourse. As part of the upcoming expansion of the A Concourse, DEN is currently constructing six new temporary gates on the east end of the concourse, expected to open by the end of this year, to accommodate airline growth. These restaurants will primarily serve the area.
After careful consideration of the needs of DEN and its travelers, Paradies Lagardère created a winning bid that not only addresses the airport’s specific objectives and goals for this concourse expansion, but also creates a high-quality dining experience for travelers, while offering a “taste” of the city.
“Snarf’s Sandwiches and Brothers BBQ have long been staples in Colorado, while Breckenridge Brewery is a pioneer in the Colorado craft beer industry. We’re excited to bring these local favorites into the airport,” said Bill Casey, senior vice president, Food and Beverage, Paradies Lagardère. “Paradies Lagardère partners with popular brands to entice travelers and bring the familiar quality, taste and atmosphere of a favorite local restaurant into an airport.”
“As Denver locals, having the venue to share our passion with people around the world is a tremendous honor. Understanding the export power of DEN, we thought of no better location to introduce our BBQ. It’s Denver’s. And what a great way to welcome, or send off, visitors to Denver. We love this city and couldn’t be happier or more excited to serve our fans – local and global,” said Chris and Nick O’Sullivan, Brother’s BBQ founders.
“On behalf of Snarf’s Sandwiches and our 300+ employees in Colorado, we’re honored and thrilled to bring Snarf’s to DEN,” said Jimmy Seidel, Snarf’s Founder & CEO. “It’s been a dream of mine to have an airport location ever since I opened the first Snarf’s in Boulder more than 20 years ago. Through our partnership with Paradies Lagardère that dream is now a reality, and we couldn’t be more excited to serve our oven-toasted sandwiches to DEN travelers in the near future.”
“Many travelers have become acquainted with our brewery through our pubs in Breckenridge and Littleton,” said Todd Usry, President of Breckenridge Brewery. “Through our partnership with Paradies Lagardère, we are excited to extend the same comfortable, welcoming experience to travelers at DEN.”
Snarf’s Sandwiches, founded by Jimmy “Snarf” Seidel, has been serving Colorado their delicious, award-winning sandwiches since 1996.
DEN travelers will find “snarfalicious” meal options made with the finest ingredients including Jimmy’s signature, oven-toasted bread, premium meats and cheeses, and fresh chopped veggies. Snarf’s also will offer a selection of salads and soups, along with gluten-free and vegetarian options. Those catching early morning flights will also be able to enjoy a variety of oven-toasted breakfast sandwiches, along with oatmeal and fruit bowls.
Brother’s BBQ IS Denver’s BBQ. With more than 20 years in the Denver market, Brother’s is considered a local legend to barbecue. Serving several local markets across the Denver Metro area, Brother’s has been affectionately adopted by their fans as “Denver’s BBQ.” Chris and Nick O’Sullivan – two local brothers who changed the face of barbecue in Denver – will now introduce their special brand to travelers around the globe at DEN. With a menu designed to appeal to barbecue lovers with a variety of tastes and appetites, DEN travelers will be able to select slow-smoked meats such as the Chopped Beef Brisket and the Pork Ribs, and round out their meal with a variety of sides such as the Brothers BBQ Beans and potato salad. Breakfast will be available, offering delicious Pulled Pork Breakfast Tacos with scrambled eggs and cheddar cheese, and steel cut oatmeal.
The food, beer, and craft cocktails at Breckenridge Brewery offer travelers a true taste of the state. Its Colorado-made beers, such as Vanilla Porter and Avalanche Amber Ale, will be available. A selection of breakfast, lunch and dinner options include favorites from the Farm House at Breckenridge Brewery in Littleton where the focus is on fresh, locally inspired dishes. Through the menu and ambiance planned for the space on A Concourse, the brewery is exporting the hospitality and comfort of its Farm House to DEN.
