UFood Restaurant Group announced that the company has been selected to build two UFood Grills at Salt Lake City International Airport in Salt Lake City, Utah. The new restaurants are a part of the airport's revitalized concessions program.

The restaurants will be owned and managed by franchisee Hojeij Branded Foods, a boutique company specializing in airport food and beverage concessions development, operations, and managing contracts at the nation's top airports.

"We are very excited to bring UFood Grill to Salt Lake City International Airport, which will provide passengers with a broad range of healthy and delicious meal and snack choices," says Lauren Beall, responsible for business development at Hojeij Branded Foods. "We know that travelers will welcome it as they have UFood's other airport locations."

"We are very proud of our new association with Hojeij Branded Foods, a highly respected company in the airport concessions industry. Our decision to open two UFood Grills at Salt Lake City International Airport marks an important milestone in our company's national expansion," says UFood CEO George Naddaff. "Additionally, as with all of our airport locations, it will provide exposure for our healthy quick-service brand to a diverse audience of travelers who are seeking better-for-you meals to bring on board."

UFood Grill is committed to offering consumers food that is both delicious and nutritious, with a wide-ranging menu that includes lean burgers, rice bowls, salads, wraps, and smoothies.

The company currently has eight locations in Boston, Dallas, and Cleveland, including four airport locations (Logan Airport, Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport, and Cleveland Hopkins International Airport), urban areas, and Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas.

Additionally, UFood Grill will open two new restaurants at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland in May, marking the company's entry into the military channel.
