PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Portland International Airport is adding nine new shops and restaurants.
Lease negotiations will begin after the Port of Portland Commission approves on July 10. Seven of the new retail spaces will open in summer 2020 in the Concourse E extension and the other two will open in spring of 2021 in Concourse B.
PDX currently has 68 shops and restaurants. The new retail spaces will create 254 new jobs.
Here is the information from PDX about the new restaurants:
- Bambuza Vietnam Kitchen (Concourse E) – The second PDX location of this popular, local eatery makes their broths, sauces and marinades from scratch in-house and sends travelers on their journeys with earth-conscious compostable or 100% recyclable take-out packaging.
- Evergreens (Concourse E) – Boasting, “Friends don’t let friends eat wilted salad,” this regional purveyor of healthy salads, grain bowls and wraps claims to work with one common goal in mind: to change the way people eat, and to do it with personality!
- Good Coffee (Concourse B) – With the simple mission of roasting coffee and making coffee in inspiring spaces to create delight for others, Good Coffee joins the PDX coffee family bringing coffee-loving travelers a fifth brand choice for their jolt of java before or after a flight.
- Jamba (Concourse E) – Formerly known as Jamba Juice, this national brand returns to PDX with a menu of smoothies, bowls and fresh juices. The company’s menu evolution now includes more options with plant-based and no-sugar-added menu items.
- Juliett (Concourse E) – From the group that brought Portland The Sweet Hereafter, The Bye and Bye, Century and Capitol, among others, the Lightning Bar Collective will pay homage to women in aviation with this new bar, clearly inspired by the space in which it will reside.
- Screen Door (Concourse B) – This outpost of the popular Portland location, operated by Host International, serves traditional southern cooking with northwest food values and will offer breakfast all day at PDX (with shorter lines—fingers crossed!). Fried Chicken and Waffles anytime? Yes, please!
- Tillamook (Concourse E) – This restaurant will offer burgers and quick bites along with a selection of grab-and-go items. It will also feature an ice cream counter so travelers who may not have made it to the coast can still sample Oregon’s own “dairy done right”.
- Calliope (Concourse E) – From the owners of cc McKenzie Shoes & Apparel comes a new shop focused on accessories and gifts. Calliope takes its name from one of Oregon’s native hummingbirds and plans to dazzle passengers with creative and playful keepsakes.
- Tender Loving Empire (Concourse E) – Since 2007, Tender Loving Empire has been connecting people who create with people who want to live artfully. A second PDX location will expand this connection to more passengers, featuring a greater focus on the company’s record label offerings.
