Now Arriving at Terminal 2: Bruegger's Baked Fresh Experience
February 12, 2008 // Franchising.com // Burlington, Vt. – One carry-on that passengers flying out of the Cincinnati area won't forget is a delicious meal from Bruegger's. Today, Bruegger's Enterprises, Inc. announced the recent grand opening of its newest bakery located in Terminal 2 just past security at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.
Bruegger's CEO James J. Greco joined airport officials for an official ribbon cutting at a recent grand opening celebration.
"This opening marks the first of several airport locations for Bruegger's," said James J. Greco, CEO of Bruegger's. "We have a tremendous amount of brand recognition in the Cincinnati market, and now our guests can enjoy a meal whether they're coming or going."
Greco added that airports have become a desirable location for many brands. "Airport locations are an incredible opportunity to reach out to existing brand loyalists as well as introduce the brand to unfamiliar travelers who may be a bit more affluent. Guests can enjoy our hot-from-the-oven breakfast sandwiches, tossed-for-you salads, made-to-order deli sandwiches, coffee and delicious soups. "
Kettle boiled first; Bruegger's bagels are baked fresh throughout the day to give them an authentic crunchy crust on the outside and a dense, chewy texture on the inside. In addition to fresh, hot bagels, Bruegger's offers an extensive menu that includes hand-crafted, fresh-tossed salads, made-to-order sandwiches and unique Green Mountain Coffee Roasters® coffee blends, including a daily Fair Trade CertifiedÔ blend.
The new airport location has seating for up to 12 guests and will employ approximately 15 people. A limited number of menu items will be available for grab-and-go for passengers on the run. The bakery is open Monday thru Saturday 4:30 AM to 8 PM and Sunday 5 AM to 8 PM.
