Earlier this month, to the joy of its passengers, the Port of Portland welcomed two food carts pre-security. Koi Fusion and Pok Pok opened for business at the airport on October 10th. Each cart will operate on a 6-month rotation, and three additional food carts are expected to arrive before the end of 2014.
The airport wanted to create “more of that neighborhood feel that Portland is known for,” said David Pfeiffer, senior manager of concession development at Port of Portland. This program gives local, small businesses an opportunity to offer their services at the airport with lower overhead costs and determine if it’s the right fit for them. The new carts can be found at the north end of the Oregon Market. Be sure to check out the food carts at PDX and let us know your favorite dish!
