Delaware North’s team at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) this week earned special recognition from the airport for its food, beverage and retail operations at the airport. In addition to receiving the 2017 “Merchant of the Year” award, Delaware North was also presented with the Best Sustainability Program at its Smack Shack restaurant.

“Delaware North experienced great change in 2017 with the introduction and full implementation of three new restaurants, six convenience and news stores and eight specialty retail shops,” said Liz Grzechowiak, assistant director of concessions and  business development at MSP. “They have embodied the spirit of partnership and have executed with great focus and diligence. As an organization they are open to exploring the implementation of new technologies to better service our passengers and increase sales. We are grateful for this opportunity to acknowledge their hard work and embrace our successful partnership. Congratulations to the entire team!”
