Samuel Adams Brewhouse, Seattle’s Best open with ribbon cutting

A new restaurant and coffee shop have landed at Fort Wayne International Airport, giving passengers a new option for casual dining and coffee beverages while traveling. On Monday, June 13, at 11 a.m., Samuel Adams Brewhouse and Seattle’s Best Coffee celebrated their grand opening with a ribbon cutting.

The Grand Opening Celebration began with opening statements from Tory Richardson, Executive Director of Airports, followed by a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony and samples of beverage and food. Guests were invited to sign up for a chance to win a “Backyard BBQ” gift package.

Participating in the ribbon cutting and depicted in the attached photo were, from left, FWA board member Jerry Henry, Chamber vice president of air service development Dave Young, executive director of airports Torrance Richardson, director of operations for Fort Wayne First Class Concessions Charlie Wilkinson, general manager of Fort Wayne First Class Concessions Michelle Lockridge, President of Fort Wayne First Class Concessions, Martin Riley project manager Lisa Young, E&V Construction vice president of business development Steve Goodman, and Martin Riley architect Jack Daniel.

“We’re looking forward to giving passengers somewhere new to relax and enjoy themselves while traveling,” said Scott Hinderman, Director of Operations and Facilities. “Not only will these restaurants be a valuable asset for FWA for years to come but they’ll create approximately 15 new jobs for the community.”
