LS travel retail Deutschland will be operating as of spring 2013 the food court at Frankfurt Main Station. This marks a major push in the company’s foodservice activities. Under the umbrella brand “Frankfurter Markthalle” (Frankfurt Marketplace) LS travel retail will be offering a wide variety of food and beverage brands in one of the most important and busiest train stations in Germany.
According to Thomas Wiesel (Managing Director), “Travellers, commuters and tourists will love our varied mix of brands – ranging from the well-known German bakery Kamps to innovative new brands on the German market such as my indigo, Rustichelli & Mangione and Brioche Dorée.”
Food and beverage for every taste
Asian meals and sushi, salads, soups, traditional German fare, fresh fish, pizza and pasta will all be on offer at the new food court – not to mention fresh-baked goods, coffee in all its variations, freshly prepared fruit juices, fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as snacks, ice cream and beer on tap. “Not only that,” adds Astrid Heck (Managing Director), “we will also be offering a wide selection of delicious take-out meals ranging from meat to fish to fruit and vegetables with oven-fresh bread to top it off.”
Full range of travel retail solutions
The Frankfurt Marketplace represents a new direction in the business activities of LS travel retail Deutschland. While the company’s roots lie in the news and books travel retail segment, it has successfully evolved into a company offering a full range of attractive travel retail solutions for every train station or airport including, as Thomas Wiesel points out, “food and beverage concepts tailored to each location. After all, we are seeing steady growth in the eating out-of-home and the take-out food market segments.” LS travel retail’s portfolio now encompasses brands in three segments: News and Convenience (RELAY, Virgin, hub CONVENIENCE), Foodservice (BOOST, Brioche Dorée, my indigo, Rustichelli & Mangione) and Specialty Retail (discover BAVARIA, discover GERMANY, L’OCCITANE, AMPELMANN, Look 54).
