City Council to look at new airport restaurants today
The Pensacola City Council will once again talk about the concessions contract for the Pensacola Airport today.
The ten-year, multi-million- dollar deal has been held up since September. A proposal from Missouri-based OHM Foods beat out the competition in a close call with the city council.
OHM would invest $1.8 million to bring national franchises lile Chick-fil-A and Einstein Brothers Bagels to the airport. And they would guarantee the city a minimum annual fee of almost $400,000.
Mayor Ashton Hayward wants to see a decision made this week.
"We bid it out. We had a committee to really look at it. We went above and beyond to make sure the process was flawless. We strongly believe it was. You know OHM was awarded the bid, and I think it's important that the council approves it and we move on down the road," said Mayor Hayward.
The current contract for airport concessions runs out in March.
