Berlin Brandenburg Airport and SSP open new F&B concepts with an urban vibe and digital focus

BER Airport (a Corporate Partner of the FTE Digital, Innovation & Startup Hub) and SSP have opened new F&B concepts in T1, with an urban vibe and use of digital technology for quicker, more convenient service.

Berlin Brandenburg Willy Brandt Airport (a Corporate Partner of the FTE Digital, Innovation & Startup Hub) and SSP have opened two Burger King restaurants and a Starbucks coffee shop in Terminal 1. The new concepts reflect the urban vibe of contemporary Berlin, and the innovative store design features artwork from the city. Within the airside food court, the Burger King restaurant spans 329sqm and seats 125 customers, while the Starbucks Coffee House is 104sqm and offers 28 seats. In the landside arrivals area, the Burger King restaurant measures 285sqm and has 126 seats. The new outlets will employ 75 full-time colleagues.

“We’re very pleased with the Burger King and Starbucks at BER, and our passengers can now choose from a total of eight different concepts in our airside food court,” said Aletta von Massenbach, CEO, Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH. “In SSP, we have a strong partner at our side, and this expansion shows the attractiveness of our airport as a location, as well as the outstanding relationship between the airport and our concession partners.”

Digital technology has been used where possible to facilitate quicker and more convenient service. Digital menu boards mean that customers can see the options available at all times of the day, while at Burger King, 12 self-order terminals airside and a further 10 terminals in the landside restaurant ensure that ordering is simple and stress-free.

Sustainability has also been a priority in the design of the menu and units. Burger King’s menu caters for flexitarian, vegetarian, and vegan diets with a broad selection of plant-based options, while Starbucks also serves a range of vegan and vegetarian options alongside responsibly-sourced coffee with dairy-alternative options at no extra charge.

Oliver Haub and Wenzel Burger, Managing Directors of SSP DACH, said: “We’re very pleased to be able to offer BER Airport passengers another Burger King restaurant and a Starbucks, which will do much to enhance the F&B offer at this important airport. These two brands will delight travellers visiting Berlin.”
