Flavors are taking flight and calories are staying grounded with the arrival of UFood Grill at the new Airmall at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE). Airmall USA Inc., an airport concessions developer in North America and operator of the Airmall at CLE, welcomed the fast-casual dining unit to Concourse B earlier this month. The unit is operated by JJR Concessions LLC.

"People on the go have become even more conscious of what they are eating. That is why UFood Grill's healthy menu makes it an appealing addition to the Airmall at CLE," says Tina LaForte, vice president of Airmall USA. "It will add to an array of healthy dining options already available, and like all Airmall units, diners can choose from the menu knowing they will pay 'Regular Mall Pricing ... Guaranteed.'"

UFood Grill has accessible nutrition information and an easy-to-navigate dietary guide to satisfy even the pickiest of passengers. It also gives customers choices, allowing them to combine the ingredients however they choose. The menu includes options such as smoothies, soups, salads, and sandwiches.

"UFood Grill is a respected brand that is known for its healthy, organic menu," says airport director Ricky Smith. "We are pleased to add them to the concessions program and we are certain that passengers will welcome their arrival."

Now in its second year of development, the new Airmall at CLE will occupy 76,000 square feet of retail space when it is completed later this year. The enhanced concessions program is also expected to double the current participation rate of local and minority-owned companies, dramatically increase the number of concession jobs, and double retail sales figures during the next decade.
