3 Firms Win Lucrative LAX Food, Beverage Contracts

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Three lucrative Los Angeles International Airport food and beverage contracts have been approved by the City Council, ending a contentious three-year competition that included allegations of politicized backroom deals.

The council voted Tuesday to approve 10-year agreements with Host International, CMS/Camacho Ventures and Delaware North.

The firms have promised to operate Los Angeles International Airport venues that include Loteria Grill, Campanile and Cole’s, which is known for its French dip sandwich.

Host International will operate in Terminal 4 and include Starbucks and L.A. Gourmet Street Truck.

CMS/Camacho Ventures will occupy Terminals 7 and 8 and feature such venues as Seven Grand, Yogurtland and Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.

Delaware North will occupy Terminal 5 and feature Loteria Grill and Three Dog Bakery.

    I don’t understand this. If these jokers, not known for high food quality, run Campanile, it’s no longer Campanile. It’s just the name with standard mediocre airport food. No competition since everything is run by “food services” not restaurants.
