HDS Retail North America is pleased to announce the opening of two new locations at Austin-Bergstrom International (AUS): ThunderCloud Subs and Ruta Maya Coffee. A long-term partner of AUS, HDS Retail is already the proud operator of news and gifts and specialty retail stores such as Austin Article, Sierra News and Stars of Austin. For its first foray into the QSR industry, the Company chose to build on its strategy to treat Austin travelers and employees with local favorites.
Famous among the local community for its signature subs and trademark ThunderSauce, ThunderCloud Subs has been “Uniquely Austin” for over 30 years. The shop offers a great variety of nutritious and quick-served sandwiches, salads, soups and drinks. Founded in 1990 on fair trade grounds, the Austin-based Ruta Maya Coffee imports 100% organic Arabica coffee beans from farmers in Latin America.
“Ruta Maya’s dedication to produce a super organic product and Thundercloud subs rich tradition of serving a fresh fast and healthy product are what makes these concepts a perfect fit for HDS Retail and Austin-Bergstrom” says Robin Jones, HDS Retail area manager.
“Austin’s airport is known for reflecting the City’s culture including food”, says Jamy Kazanoff, Assistant Director at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. “The addition of ThunderCloud Subs and Ruta Maya Coffee expands the Austin vibe into a new area on the concourse. We wish them much success.”
Opened at the beginning of October, both eateries are already performing above expectations, with the airport ThunderCloud location becoming one of the top revenue generators of the brand’s local network. HDS Retail is proud of this exciting and successful new cooperation with Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
