BALTIMORE, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AIRMALL® USA, the leading airport concessions developer in North America, is pleased to announce that Silver Diner at the AIRMALL at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI Marshall) won "Best Airport Restaurant Design" in the ARN 2013 Best Airports & Concessionaires Awards program.  Silver Diner received the award at a reception on Tuesday, February 26 during the ARN 2013 Revenue Conference & Exhibition (February 24-26 in Las Vegas, Nev.)  The Maryland-based restaurant will be featured along with other winners in the April 2013 issue of Airport Revenue News.


"With a fun retro setting reminiscent of a classic American diner and a focus on serving healthier selections, Silver Diner has been a traveler destination since it opened at BWI Marshall in 2007," said Brett Kelly, vice president of AIRMALL Maryland.  "It remains one of the largest restaurants on airport property today, and we are excited that it is about to grow in size."

Currently, the AIRMALL at BWI Marshall is working with both the airport and its tenants to execute a $15-million upgrade to the concessions program over the next two years.  The project includes the creation of a new connector between concourses B and C, and Silver Diner will be located along this new connector.  Once renovations to the restaurant are complete and the new connector opens, Silver Diner will be one-third larger, enabling it to serve even more hungry travelers with its signature farm-to-table fare. 

The ARN Best Airports and Concessionaires Awards is an annual awards program sponsored by Airport Revenue News that recognizes the industry's airports and concessions operators in categories, including best concessions design, best customer service, most unique services, and best overall concessions program.
