Casual bar and grill chain TGI Fridays has announced the opening of its newly renovated restaurant inside the Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) Airport in the US.

The company expects this remodelled location at Gate 10 of Terminal B, to have the highest volume sales of any in-airport restaurant across the US.

As well as being TGI’s first restaurant to provide a patio dining airport experience, it features one of the largest bars in the airport.

It also has a to-go area called ‘Fridays on the Fly’ that serves up an array of food and drinks, as well as innovative self-checkout kiosks.

This restaurant’s remodelling is part of a wider restaurant renovation strategy of the company.  

TGI committed a $16m investment in completing the renovation work of five restaurants located in the DFW area within the next two years.

TGI Fridays US president Brandon Coleman III said: “The grand opening of our newly renovated restaurant in Terminal B is a shining example of the strength of the TGI Fridays brand and what we can bring to airports nationwide.

“We are committed to continued evolution and innovation in airports across the globe, ensuring that every guest enjoys that Friday feeling.”

TGI Fridays revenue management and customer experience executive vice-president Ken Buchanan said: “DFW Airport is excited for the elevated new experience TGI Fridays will be providing to our customers.

“DFW is proud to offer our customers diverse and unique dining options that meet every flavour palate. TGI Fridays complements this by bringing in a national brand everyone knows, blended with local flavour that truly represents North Texas.”

In June, the casual dining restaurant chain launched its new Grilled and Sauced menu across its select restaurants in the US.

TGI Fridays operates nearly 700 restaurants in 51 countries.
