Exciting tastes are on the menu at Stansted Airport following the opening of Café Balzar, the French artisan style bar and café and Joes Coffeehouse, open 24 hours and located before security.
Balzar and Joes Coffeehouse, concessions of travel catering experts TRG, benefit from free Wi-Fi that’s available for one hour throughout the terminal and are popular with passengers wanting to get online and take time out to relax in comfort. Joes Coffeehouse also offers a grab and go option - ideal for anyone on the move.
These new modern units are part of the £80m terminal redevelopment to improve services and facilities for passengers. Michelle Madeley, Head of Retail for M.A.G and responsible for food and beverage development at Stansted Airport said:
"During 2014 passengers will see many changes and more choice in food and beverage options at Stansted Airport and we are very excited that TRG’s new units have opened for business.
"Phase one of the £80m terminal development project to relocate security search and extend the departure lounge by over 60% is nearing completion. Phase two concentrates on services in the departure lounge, including a dedicated food and beverage area to suit all budgets and tastes, and we’ve had submissions from a number of leading operators and exciting new concepts and brands."
Nick Ayerst, TRG Concessions Managing Director said:
"TRG Concessions are pleased to be part of London Stansted Airports Terminal Transformation Project with the opening of Café Balzar, a continental themed all day café-Bar and Joes Coffeehouse. The new offerings compliment the current food and drink offers and no doubt start to indicate the future changes to come in the airport. Both are open 24 hours a day, meaning no matter what time passengers travel through Stansted they can get freshly cooked and quality food and drinks at all times."
