Following the recent news that Denver City Council has approved $1.1 billion to fund DIA’s Great Hall renovation project, Denver International Airport (DEN) has announced that it will add a slew of new dining and retail options to travelers by 2023, many of them Colorado brands. The DEN Concessions program is one of the biggest commercial developments in the US, adding an additional 60,000 square feet of new space.
“We are committed to enhancing our passengers’ experience by offering unique and exciting dining and shopping options throughout DEN,” said DEN CEO Phil Washington. “DEN’s concessions program is expanding with local and nationally recognized brands that will give passengers more reason and excitement to travel through our airport. Our Gate Expansion Program gives us even more to look forward to as the space allows us to offer more dining and retail options to our already robust concessions program.”
Some of the multiple concessions scheduled to open this year include favorite Denver eateries Mercantile Dining & Provision in Concourse A, and VooDoo Doughnut in Concourse B. And in 2023, Elway’s Tap Room and Tacos Tequila Whiskey will open in Concourse A.
The new development means DEN’s Concessions program will embark on multiple construction projects. In 2022, a total of 56 construction projects will take place, which include 24 full construction buildouts and 32 refreshes. This is the first time DEN will experience this magnitude of concessions development since the airport opened in 1995.
