We’re spoiled rotten here in the Burg. We have some of the nation’s finest beaches in our backyard and not just one but THREE airports within 20 minutes of most of the city. Life just got even sweeter for travelers in the Sunshine City because St. Pete Clearwater International awarded a 10 year “Master Concession Agreement” to the SSP-Hudson PIE Concessions, LLC.

What does that mean for us travelers? You’ll soon be able to find St. Pete legends Mazarro’s Italian Market from gates 7–11 post-security and 3 Daughters Brewing at gates 2–6 post-security!

Mazzaro’s & 3 Daughters Brewing join PIE

YES. You read that right! We’re hoping of few of the 3 Daughters ciders make the menu. Oomph, and just imagine savoring one of Mazzaro’s Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches before you jet set. Be right back, we’re swooning.

We might just book a flight so we can savor all of these St. Pete flavors in one hub. Plus, plane spotting is like our second favorite past time.

More food options popping up pre-security 

In addition, Dunkin Donuts will be added in Pre-Security and in the Departure Lounges at Gates 2–6. District Pub will be holding down the public pre-security restaurant space on the 2nd floor. As well as Market 361, a locally themed retail store, named for the average annual days of sunshine we have in Pinellas County.

“Adding the local flavor of Mazzaro’s and 3 Daughters Brewing is exciting for our local passengers,” said Airport Director Tom Jewsbury. “And will certainly create fans of our visiting passengers.”

All concession spaces to be completed by 2019

You won’t have to wait years to sip a 3 Daughters Beach Blonde Ale before boarding your flight. The airport’s renovation project of gates 7–11 is almost complete and has been open since the fall of 2018. Spaces in that 12,000 square foot addition are already set for Hudson’s new concessions facilities. By the end of 2019, ALL concessions spaces throughout the airport are expected to be completed.
