SSP Group will open Cornelius Coffee outlets at Sweden’s Stockholm Arlanda and Gothenburg Landvetter airports, with a new Fika coffee concept also introduced at the latter location.
The stores form part of a new agreement for the travel food and beverage operator, which will see it open a total of 18 food and beverage and convenience locations across the two Swedish airports from Spring 2023.
Seeking to uphold Stockholm Arlanda’s sustainability credentials, which saw it become one of the first European airports to achieve net zero carbon emissions, the Cornelius Coffee store has been developed using recycled materials. The Swedish brand will also be introduced at Gothenburg Landvetter Airport.
Additionally, SSP has developed a new coffee concept for Gothenburg Landvetter Airport, called Fika, which has been developed to evoke authentic Swedish café culture through its menu flavours and Scandinavian design.
“Throughout a number of decades, we have built a strong relationship with the team at Arlanda and Landvetter. This has enabled us to truly understand their needs and those of their customers to create a food and beverage offer that will appeal today as well as in years to come. Brands that have sustainability at their core, utilising locally sourced products where possible are also provided to meet the fast-growing needs of consumers looking to limit their impact on the environment,” said Björn Olsson, Managing Director, SSP Sweden.
Both Stockholm Arlanda and Gothenburg Landvetter airports already have a strong coffee shop presence. The two locations each operate Caffè Ritazza, Espresso House and Joe & The Juice sites, with Stockholm Arlanda also hosting coffee offerings from Barino, Lavazza Expression, RC and Starbucks.
In September 2022, SSP Group announced that it expects to return to pre-pandemic trading levels by 2024 after anticipating sales of £2.17bn ($2.3bn) for its full 2022 financial year. The company’s full 2022 results are scheduled to be released in December 2022.
