Cater Care, a 100% Australian owned and operated company, has been awarded the airport retail concession contract at Mackay Airport.
The new contract comes hot on the heels from finalising their acquisition of Spotless Group’s (ASX: SPO) airport concession business, that sees Cater Care become one of the largest airport concession operators in Australia.
Chief Operating Officer of Cater Care’s retail division, Rob Rutter, is pleased to have been awarded the contract so soon after finalising the acquisition and is excited by the opportunities at Mackay Airport and to be partnering with the North Queensland Airports group.
“We’re passionate about what we do and we know what’s important to customers, which is why we believe we’ll add real value to the Mackay Airport experience. The introduction of two of Australia’s best loved brands in Red Rooster and Boost Juice will offer those in the airport a fresh alternative, whilst The Botanist Kitchen and Bar will bring its signature menu and ‘the region’s best breakfast’ to Mackay.
It will also showcase local Queensland ales and wines. No airport is complete without a place to grab a quick coffee, and we’re proud to be partnering with one of Queensland’s favourite boutique roasters Wolfe Coffee. Mackay Airport provides us an opportunity to further our representation in the region with this contract representing a significant component of our Northern Queensland business.” Mr. Rutter said.
Mackay Airport General Manager Rob Porter was impressed by Cater Care’s understanding of the market and the customised solution they put forward.
“From the outset Cater Care’s approach and commitment to providing the same calibre of food and beverage in our regional airport as you would find in the capital cities was evident. We are looking forward to a refreshed, quality food and beverage offering for our airport users and are excited to welcome the Cater Care team to Mackay Airport,” Mr Porter said.
