Travel retail and restaurateur leader secures two additional awards, including USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice recognition
ATLANTA – Paradies Lagardère, the travel retail and restaurateur leader in North America, for the 23rd consecutive year earned the Airport Revenue News’ ARN Awards top honor as Best Overall Retailer, and Best Specialty Retail Brand Operator for Brooks Brothers. The ARN Awards recognize airport concessionaires and restaurateurs that exemplify exceptional standards and excellence. The awards were given during the annual ARN Conference & Exhibition, which took place in Orlando, Fla., March 12 through 15. Paradies Lagardère also earned the USA Today 10Best Reader’s Choice Award for Best Airport Newsstand/Travel Essential for Univision at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW).
“Paradies Lagardère is honored to receive these prestigious awards,” said Gregg Paradies, president and CEO of Paradies Lagardère. “Having earned the Best Overall Retailer for a 23rd consecutive year is a testament to the dedication and commitment of our associates who work extremely hard to exceed the expectations of the customers and business partners we serve. The Best Specialty Retail Brand Operator award for Brooks Brothers is particularly special because this year marks the brand’s 200th anniversary. As we celebrate this historic event with Brooks Brothers, we’re also proud of our longstanding partnership with them. Univision, the number one Spanish-language network in the U.S. and an international media powerhouse, is another strong partnership for Paradies Lagardère. We look forward to continued growth with these iconic brands.”
