Pennsylvania-based La Colombe Coffee Roasters has opened its fifth location at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL). 

Founded in 1994 by Todd Carmichael and Jean Philippe Iberti with a store in the Rittenhouse Square neighbourhood of Philadelphia, La Colombe opened its first site at PHL in August 2017.  

The specialty coffee roaster and café chain now operates sites in the airport’s Terminal A East, Terminal B, B-C Connector, Terminal E and Terminal F. Other café brands at the airport include Dunkin’, which operates three sites, Starbucks and illycaffé

“As we continue to introduce new and exciting concessions at PHL, we are particularly proud when an existing operator chooses to expand with us. La Colombe serves exceptionally rich-tasting coffee that embodies the spirit of Philadelphia’s coffee scene,” said Mel Hannah, Vice President and General Manager of MarketPlace, PHL. 

In addition to its five airport sites, Pennsylvania-based La Colombe operates a further 32 coffee shops across seven US states. 

The business was acquired by New York-based dairy giant Chobani for $900m in December 2023. While La Colombe continues to operate as an independent brand, Chobani said La Colombe will benefit from its extensive retail networks, marketing and cold chain distribution capabilities.
