USA. Concessions International will open a Bobby’s Burger Palace at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport’s Concourse B early next year.

The Bobby’s Burger Palace menu includes 12 made-to-order burgers, fries with sauces and toppings, salads, milkshakes and other drinks.

Bobby’s Burger Palace Founder Bobby Flay believes the licensing deal with Concessions International will be the first of many

Bobby’s Burger Palace Founder and Managing Partner Bobby Flay said: “This is an exciting time for Bobby’s Burger Palace as we team up with Concessions International to bring our signature hamburgers to over a hundred million travellers who visit Hartsfield-Jackson each year.

“Our menu celebrates my love for food and travel, which makes the most travelled airport in the world an ideal location. We believe this licensing deal will be the first of many, as we have a significant opportunity to grow worldwide.”
