JFKIAT Invites Potential Concessionaire Partners to Respond to RFQ

Back to Newsroom

JFK International Air Terminal (JFKIAT), the operator New York John F. Kennedy International Airport Terminal 4, invites potential partners to respond to a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process as we prepare to bring ten food & beverage outlets to market.

Through a competitive solicitation process, we are looking to partner with a world-class food & beverage concessionaire to deliver a fresh, local take on the tastes of New York for its passengers and strengthen T4’s distinctive, New York-centric Sense of Place.

This partner will join a world-class line-up of nearly 100 retail, food & beverage and service concepts at T4, who share JFKIAT’s commitment to a best-in-class customer experience, innovation, and sustainability.

The Request for Qualifications will be the first of a two-stage process for application, and one partner will ultimately be selected.

Once qualifications are complete, the proposal stage will be open to a short-list of respondents. They should then demonstrate that they have the vision, innovation, and capability to deliver Terminal 4 customers a flexible and evolutionary food & beverage experience.

Stage one submissions are due on 8 December. The targeted contract award date is Q1 2024.

T4 Tip

T4 Tip

T4 is a work of art. Really! You’ll find our private collection of world-class paintings, sculptures, and mobiles on display throughout the terminal.

With ongoing roadway construction at JFK Airport, your journey may have significant delays.

We recommend our T4 guests to allow some extra time to reach the terminal. Travelers are also encouraged to pre-book parking 48 hours in advance to guarantee parking and avoid the surcharge by clicking here. Alternatively, parking is available at Federal Circle, and take a transfer from there to T4 with the AirTrain.

Worried about long lines at security?

With Reserve powered by CLEAR, you can save your spot ahead of time and avoid the wait. No checked-in bag? You may go directly to the TSA checkpoint at level 1, on the east of the terminal.
