PITTSBURGH, July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AIRMALL® USA, the leading airport concessions developer in North America and operator of the AIRMALL at PIT, is pleased to welcome its newest restaurant to Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT), Bruegger's Bagels. Travelers looking for authentic New York style bagels and a wide range of sandwiches, salads, soups and desserts at PIT can now satisfy their cravings at the newly opened bakery (1,372 sq. ft.), located in Concourse B.  This is Bruegger's first location at PIT and their 5th airport location in the U.S.


"Bruegger's offers travelers the perfect bite on the go for breakfast, lunch or dinner," said Jay Kruisselbrink, vice president of development for AIRMALL Pittsburgh.  "With a menu of take-out items such as an egg sandwich on a freshly baked bagel  as well as a wide variety of sandwiches, salads and soups, Bruegger's is bound to become a traveler favorite.  We're pleased to welcome them to the concessions program at the AIRMALL at PIT."

To mark the grand opening of Bruegger's at PIT, the restaurant will be hosting an event on Wednesday, July 18. All day long, travelers and employees will be offered $0.99 cent bagels & cream cheese and $0.99 cent medium coffees to celebrate the opening. In addition, all guests that day can also enter to win one of ten 2012 Bottomless Mugs that entitle the holder to free coffee, tea or fountain soda for the rest of 2012.

Known for genuine New York-style bagels baked fresh, Bruegger's offers a wide variety of freshly prepared breakfast and lunch options made with high-quality, simple ingredients including breakfast sandwiches, hand-tossed salads, hearty soups, sandwiches, paninis and desserts, with a frequently changing menu reflecting seasonal specialties.

Founded in 1992, the AIRMALL at PIT pioneered the developer model for airport concessions across the United States by introducing "Regular Mall Prices...Guaranteed."  Passengers pay no more for goods and services at the AIRMALL than they would pay at a comparable nearby store or restaurant. 

For the past several years, the AIRMALL at PIT took first place among U.S. airports in the food, shops and amenities category in Conde Nast Traveler's Annual Business Travel Awards.
