THAILAND. SSP Group has secured a contract to open seven Point stores at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, offering passengers a diverse range of new food and drink options en route to departure gates.

Six compact units will be featured in the international terminal, while a larger space will act as an efficient centralised kitchen to serve all other outlets.  

The offer will include a mix of popular, easy staples such as sandwiches and pastries. There will also be Asian favourites, such as steamed buns and bento rice boxes, and Thai comfort foods including fried rice and curries.  

Capitalising on SSP’s expertise in F&B, and helping to reduce the company’s carbon footprint, all food items will be freshly prepared on site rather than being flown in. The stores will also sell branded confectionery and bean-to-cup coffees.

The SSP Point stores in Bangkok will cater to all tastes with an extensive menu of coffees and sandwiches, as well as colourful Thai and Asian food

Commenting on the openings, SSP Asia Pacific CEO Jonathan Robinson said: “Our experience, supported by the findings of our latest customer survey, shows that convenience matters more than ever to airport passengers. These new Point outlets will offer passengers travelling through Suvarnabhumi a selection of great-quality, delicious meals and snacks to enjoy at the departure gate or take onto their flight.” 

The Point brand was developed in 2006 in Norway specifically for the travel market. The look and feel of the Thai Point stores will be updated to reflect local tastes, featuring bright colours and contemporary cement countertop finishes.

The offer, notable for its simple mid-century modern aesthetic, was subsequently rolled out Spain, and further openings are planned in other markets. The Thai stores will add to SSP’s portfolio of more than 550 international, national and local brands.

SSP Thailand now has almost 90 units, over 1,200 employees and covers nine main travel hubs, including the six new outlets coming to Suvarnabhumi
