TAMPA — Travelers can enjoy eight new dining or shopping options at the Tampa International Airport, the biggest one-time increase since the airport's concessions redevelopment program begin in 2016.

The new choices include New York New York Pizza, Chick-fil-A, Burger 21, Shades of Time and Dylan's Candy Bar on Airside A; and SPANX, The Body Shop and a News Channel 8 store on Airside C.

"These new shops and restaurants reflect the local flavor and feel of the Tampa Bay region while also providing passengers access to a wide-range of prominent national and international brands," Laurie Noyes, the airport's vice president of airport concessions, said in a statement.

While many of the concessions are national brands, TIA is pushing to bring more local and diverse options. News Channel 8 is a convenience store that will feature grab-and-go food options by local icon Alessi Bakery, which serves European cakes, cookies and sandwiches. Burger 21 was created by The Melting Pot, a Tampa-based fondue restaurant chain with roots near Orlando. New York New York Pizza is also locally based.

With the new addition, TIA is up to 43 concessions, which also includes other local staples such as Cigar City, Four Green Fields and Buddy Brew. There are now 14 women- or minority-owned businesses, which use the Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) program.
