"We're pleased that a well-known favorite like Bruegger's will be joining our concessions program at the AIRMALL at PIT this spring," Jay Kruisselbrink, vice president of development for AIRMALL Pittsburgh.  "From freshly brewed coffee and bagels out of the oven to salads and sandwiches, Bruegger's has something for passengers to enjoy any time of day."

Known for genuine New York-style bagels baked fresh, Bruegger's also bakes an array of fresh breads.  Bruegger's also offers a variety of menu items that include unique cream cheese flavors, breakfast sandwiches, hand-tossed salads, hearty soups, sandwiches, paninis and desserts, with a frequently changing menu reflecting seasonal and geographical specialties.

Bruegger's joins several other high-quality food and beverage units that have recently signed a lease to open storefronts at the AIRMALL at PIT in 2012:

  • The Burgh Sportz Pubs is a Pittsburgh-themed sports bar featuring Pittsburgh sports memorabilia that honor the legacy of the region's professional football, hockey and baseball teams. The Burgh Sportz Pub will open two locations at PIT — one on Concourse B (1,300 sq. ft), and a second unit on Concourse D (530 square feet). 
  • Auntie Anne's offers an array of pretzel flavors to satisfy any craving, including original, cinnamon sugar, almond, pepperoni, sour cream and onion and garlic. Auntie Anne's (400 sq. ft.) will be located on Concourse A.

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 two 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.
