Technology Matters
Probably the hottest thing in the airport concession industry now are the applications for concession ordering. The current Apps out in the market supply (at least as of now), only pre-ordering for  a limited number of restaurants (no retail) at select airports, requiring the customer to go to the store to pick up their orders. Coming soon, however, is an application that will allow people to pre-order concessions (both food and retail goods)  up to a week in advance of their trip, and have the products delivered to their holdroom. For tight connections, this will mean that the traveler is no longer faced with being "stuck" with whatever they can grab near their gate or on their trek. Gate huggers can get the $20 meal, instead of paying $8 for fast food just so they can stay within eyesight of their gate. The App also learns the travelers' likes, dislikes, and habits,  and will even be able to get information from social media in order to deliver intelligent, targeted reminders instead of just bugging all travelers with the same messages which may not matter to the traveler. Let's talk technology and what is best for your airport.
