SSP to operate 29 retail and food and beverage outlets at Oslo Airport Gardermoen valued at £500M

LONDON, 2015-11-17 — /EPR Retail News/ — SSP, a leading operator of food and beverage brands in travel locations worldwide, has won a contract for between five years (for retail) and seven years (for food and beverage) valued at approximately £500 million (6.4 billion Norwegian Krone) at Oslo Airport Gardermoen. It will operate 29 retail and food and beverage outlets, which will open between 2016 and 2018.

Brands featured include well-known international brands such as Starbucks and exciting ‘firsts’ for Norway, including two concepts from leading UK chef Jamie Oliver – a bakery called Deli & Bakery by Jamie Oliver and Jamie’s Italian. There are also locally renowned names such as WB Samson, which, established in 1894, is Oslo’s oldest bakery. In addition, a number of bespoke concepts will highlight the very best of the Scandinavian region. Among these is Hunter Bar, which has been designed to encapsulate the masculinity as well as the softer virtues of the modern Norwegian man, and serves hearty dishes including venison. Norgesglasset is named after a type of glass that was produced in Norway from the beginning of the twentieth century until the 1970s, and celebrates the best of Norwegian design. Another example is Aquavit Bar, where passengers can enjoy the famous Scandinavian potato-based liquor, as well as beers.

Commenting on the new deal, Morten Solberg Nilsen, managing director of SSP Norway and Denmark said; “SSP has been operating at Oslo Gardermoen since 1998, and we are delighted to be building on our relationship with the team here as the airport moves into a new era. Our offer has been designed to help the airport achieve its ambitions to create a ‘Gateway to Scandinavia’, and we are certain that this outstanding brand line-up will do much to further enhance the customer experience at Oslo Airport.”
