March 28, 2008 // Franchising.com // Burlington, Vt. – International travelers heading out of Boston will certainly require passports, but one carry-on they won't want to forget is a delicious meal from Bruegger's. Today, Bruegger's Enterprises, Inc. announced the grand opening of its newest bakery-cafe located in Terminal E at Boston Logan Airport.
Bruegger's opened its first airport location in February 2008 at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. A third airport bakery is planned for Raleigh-Durham International Airport in late summer 2008.
The new bakery is located before the security gates and will serve international travelers flying on airlines such as Aer Lingus, Air France, Alitalia, Icelandair, British Airways, Lufthansa and many others.
"This is the second airport location for Bruegger's," said James J. Greco, Bruegger's CEO. "The greater Boston area is one of our largest markets with more than 20 bakeries, and now airport employees and our guests traveling abroad can enjoy one of their favorite local meals."
The new airport location has seating for up to 12 guests and will employ approximately 15 people. A limited number of menu items will also be available for grab-and-go for employees and passengers on the run. The bakery is open daily from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
