ARI launches new F&B offering at the Loop Terminal 1, Dublin Airport.
Marqette, a new dining and bar concept based on traditional food markets and employing 110 new permanent staff, has opened for business in The Loop at Terminal 1, Dublin Airport.
Marqette’s €4m investment evokes traditional outdoor food markets in a new world setting, and will cater for 5,000 customers daily, offering locally sourced, organic produce as well as fresh artisan breads that are baked on site. Marqette’s centrepiece is a bespoke wooden bar serving a range of craft beers and a curated wine list from around the globe.
This latest investment by ARI at Dublin Airport follows the launch of the new look Loop in Terminal 1, which opened last March after an €8 million investment. Marqette offers excellent value for money and is a welcomed addition to The Loop’s unique customer airside shopping experience.
Jack MacGowan – ARI Chief Executive said “Our aim for The Loop in Dublin Airport is to provide an outstanding experience for all our customers, both shoppers and diners. Following on from the opening of our new ‘walk-through” retail area in T1, we’re proud to now add a world-class F&B concept featuring the best of Irish and international food and drink in a contemporary and wonderfully-designed setting.”
Michael Thornton, General Manager, Marqette, added: “Marqette sets a new standard for food service at The Loop, Dublin Airport, offering customers and airport staff food to go, food on the slow and food on the fly. We are sourcing the best quality produce from passionate local suppliers and our menus reflect seasonal availability. We are delighted to be located within The Loop and we look forward to wowing passengers and staff with our naturally based food offering.”
The opening of Marqette is another major improvement to the overall customer experience in the Loop T1 and its associated facilities, and customers will continue to see further enhancements over the coming months. Passenger numbers at Dublin Airport are growing strongly, with traffic up 15% so far this year, and Marqette will offer additional choice to our many millions of customers.
