INDONESIA. Autogrill Group division HMSHost International has officially unveiled Wolfgang Puck Kitchen + Bar in the international airside zone at Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport.
Developed by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck, the restaurant serves freshly made sandwiches, gourmet pasta and pizza, fresh salads plus full bar menu complete with cocktails.
The casual dining concept is available in 52 locations worldwide, and this is its first outlet in Indonesia.
The new location is part of the company’s five-outlet food & beverage concession, won in Phase One of a tender process organised by airport company Angkasa Pura I in 2021. Others included Two Dragons, Little Eats, Fresh and Espresso Bar.
In Phase Two of the tender process, HMSHost won six stores and has brought four new brands to the airport; two Pizza Huts, two Starbucks, a Coffee Club and High Tide Bar.
Among those who attended the restaurant’s debut were HMSHost Indonesia and Malaysia Managing Director Matt Neal and I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport’s General Manager Handy Heryudhitiawan, representing Angkasa Pura Airports, alongside representatives from both parties.
Neal said: “We are honoured to officially unveil Wolfgang Puck Kitchen + Bar in this prime location for our highly valued travellers. We had a successful ‘soft’ opening in December 2022, and the early feedback from our guests has been amazing. The restaurant can comfortably serve up to 220 dine-in customers, where they can enjoy an extensive menu which is executed to fine dining standards.”
Handy also commented: “With this remarkable opening, I believe Autogrill HMSHost & Bali Airport’s collaboration will not stop here; we will go further, and we will go stronger.” ✈
