SSP America is opening six new restaurants at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) in Maricopa County, Arizona, US.

The new facilities will be built at the airport’s John S. McCain III Terminal 3 as part of the gateway’s $590m modernisation programme. It also complements SSP America’s ten-year contract signed in 2013 to commence operations at PHX’s Terminal 4.

“Sense of place, taste of place and commitment to the community combined with an optimum choice for the passenger and exceptional customer service are the hallmarks of SSP America’s new contract with PHX.”
