Temporary Restaurants Arrive in Terminal A on Aug. 1; Food Court Remodel Set For 2015 Completion

Travelers to Terminal A at Sacramento International Airport will notice changes in food and beverage options beginning Friday, Aug. 1. SSP America is replacing existing restaurants with temporary vendors while they remodel the food court in anticipation of six new restaurants arriving in 2015.

On the first level of Terminal A, Jet Box will offer grab-and-go sandwiches, salads and coffee. Located post-security on the concourse will be True Burger, Mia Mozzarella, Peet’s Coffee and Tea, the Sacramento Sports Bar, Jet Box, and Rebar restaurant and bar

SSP America is spending $3 million to build new storefronts and buy equipment for food and beverage concessions in Terminal A. Bythe summer of 2015, local favorites Paesanos, Squeeze Inn and another only-in-Sacramento restaurant will join SSP America brands Freshii and Urban Crave in Terminal A.

Wine lounge Vino Volo and retail shops Travel Mart, In Motion, Capitol Marketplace, Details, and Forever Silver are not impacted by construction and will remain open.

Offering restaurants unique to Sacramento is part of the airport’s effort to give customers in Terminal A the same customer experience available in Terminal B, said Director of Airports John Wheat.

“We apologize for any inconvenience and hope customer impact is minimal, as we will have food and beverage concessions available during remodeling,” said Wheat. “We think the new layout and new restaurants will be worth the wait.”

Delta, United Airlines, United Express, US Airways and JetBlue fly out of Terminal A.
