IND Concessions and Retail Opportunities

Being an award-winning airport means keeping the airport experience fresh and meaningful for both leisure and business travelers alike. To that end, the Indianapolis International Airport (IND) is undergoing a Concessions & Retail Refresh Program to further enhance the distinctive and high quality “Indy” travel experience.

Concession area in Indianapolis International Airport

The refresh endeavor is part of the Indianapolis Airport Authority's (IAA) larger strategy, which includes showcasing local foods, beverages and brands that directly represent the Indianapolis culture and experience.

In Fall 2016, the IAA hosted public community outreach meetings and is continuing to meet with interested businesses prior to the release of a Request for Proposals in Spring 2017. We are encouraging businesses that are eligible for the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) or Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) program at the airport to participate. The IAA encourages local participation; current experience operating concessions at the airport is not required.

If you are an owner or general manager of the following industries, this program is for you!

  • Restaurants and eateries
  • Wineries and breweries
  • Retailers and gift shops
  • Suppliers of the above-mentioned
  • Businesses who might want to have their products sold at IND, but not run a store
  • Architects and designers who might design a concessionaire’s new space

A number of existing concessionaire and retailer leases will expire in 2018, which presents an opportunity for the IAA to take food, beverage and retail in a fresh direction, one that shouts 'we are Indianapolis'. The IAA strongly encourages all interested parties to reach out to learn more about the upcoming IND concession opportunities.
