    HMSHost recently expanded its restaurant portfolio with a new marketplace-style dining concept called MKT. The new MKT restaurants feature healthy, garden-fresh options, hand-crafted sandwiches, and scratch-made soups for travelers.

    MKT can be found in Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, Las Vegas McCarran International Airport, Anchorage International Airport, and Tulsa International Airport.

    “The launch of MKT is significant for HMSHost because it represents the essence of what we believe today’s foodie and health-conscious traveler desires,” says HMSHost vice president of restaurant development Frank Sickelsmith. “Our research shows that marketplace-style shopping and dining is a leading trend, which makes MKT an exciting way to connect with our guests.”

    Travelers visiting MKT will find signature salads like All Day Energy and Classic Cobb. Sandwiches include the Phat Philly, made with shaved rib-eye and provolone on a baguette, and the Big 3, made with corned beef, turkey, and pastrami. MKT also serves flatbreads at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

    HMSHost’s proprietary brand portfolio includes a spectrum of dining concepts including Beaudevin wine bar, Pork N’ Picklegastropub and barbecue, Groundedcustom hamburgers, and PZA gourmet pizzas among others. MKT fits this overall line-up as the company’s premier marketplace-style eatery.
