Cafeteria opportunity takes flight at Brisbane Airport

Brisbane Airport Corporation is calling for EOIs from experienced cafeteria operators to lease and manage a new cafeteria in a high-flying airport precinct.

Brisbane Airport General Manager Commercial Businesses John Tormey said the cafeteria will form part of an expansion to Aviation Australia’s base, along with new training facilities and office space.

“The Aviation Australia training precinct will see 750 staff and students each day alone,” Mr Tormey said, “But the cafeteria will have a much wider customer base – servicing the whole Da Vinci precinct in Airport South.”

The busy Da Vinci Precinct is a bustling hive of aviation activity.

More than 10,000 FIFO workers pass through the precinct each month, as well as a base of workers from the surrounding businesses.

Mr Tormey said the cafeteria is an opportunity for a savvy café operator to secure new operations in a well-established location and be part of the growth of the precinct.

“It’s a unique precinct with a great mix of businesses all within walking distance from the cafeteria,” Mr Tormey said.

“We have everything from freight, electrical, dentistry, and even Baskin and Robbins with offices in the precinct, with more land earmarked for future office and warehouse requirements.”

The cafeteria is due to open by the end of 2015 as part of the Aviation Australia expansion. The successful operator will be able to provide input in the design process to best suit their operations.

The cafeteria will also cater for a range of events including recruiting weekends, morning teas, sponsor launches, all day conferences and the Aviation Australia annual Careers Expo.
