March 7, 2017

Tampa International Airport is hosting its sixth concessions job fair on Monday, March 13, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Hillsborough County Aviation Authority Board Room.

Airport concessionaires are looking to fill more than 200 positions for shops and restaurants throughout the airport, including for both existing concessions and upcoming openings. More hiring opportunities will arise as additional concessions open throughout this year.

Participants in this month’s job fair include the companies representing Burger 21, Panda Express, New York New York Pizza, RumFish Grill, Chick-fil-A, Auntie Anne’s, Four Green Fields, Ybor City news convenience and coffee shop, Bay to Bay news convenience store, Air Essentials retail store and restaurants represented in Marches C and F, including Goody Goody, Ulele, Louis Pappas Fresh Greek and more. These hourly positions include servers, bartenders, utility workers, cashiers, prep cooks, line cooks, supervisors and sales associates.

The openings come as part of the airport’s comprehensive concessions overhaul that will bring 69 new shops, restaurants and services to TPA with an exciting new mix of flavors, designs and business owners.

More than 40 percent of the new food and beverage concepts are dedicated to local brands, including such favorites as Columbia Restaurant, Four Green Fields and Buddy Brew Coffee. Participation in the Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) increased from three companies to 15.

All of the new concessions are expected to be open by the end of this year, and more than a third are already open and operating. For more information on concessions opportunities at Tampa International, please visit us online at www.TampaAirport.com/employment-opportunities
