A TOTAL OF 19 NEW shopping and dining options are now available to visitors at Chicago’s Midway International Airport, including the latest restaurant opening in the middle of Concourse B. The opening of a local favorite, Hubbard Inn, on June 15 marked a milestone of successfully repurposing concourse space to enhance the food offerings at the airport. The full concession redevelopment will offer more than 70 new concession options at the airport by the end of 2020.
The upgrade is part of the Chicago Department of Aviation’s partnership with Midway Partnership LLC to enhance and expand the concession program. The concessions redevelopment is one of three marquee projects part of the Midway Modernization Program, a nearly $400 million investment that also includes the passenger security checkpoint expansion and terminal parking garage improvements.
MMP is the largest redevelopment program at the airport in nearly 20 years and is expected to create more than 2,000 construction and permanent concession jobs.
New dining and retail options at Midway highlighting local and national brands include:
BIG & little’s
Big Shoulders Coffee
Billy Goat Tavern
Camden food co.
Einstein Bros Bagels
Hudson News & Gifts

If Highway 1 and Route 128 are the ribbons holding this package together, Elk Cove Inn & Spa can be considered the bow. Mendocino Coast’s first vacation destination, established in 1968, is an ideal 16-room gateway to the destination.
