Paradies Lagardère Brings Local Flavor with New Restaurant and Unique Travel Essential Concept
ATLANTA – Paradies Lagardère, a travel retail and restaurateur leader in North America, and San Francisco International Airport (SFO), today celebrated two concepts in the newly-opened Harvey Milk Terminal 1, a $2.4 billion project that debuted in July 2019. Mills Cargo, a travel essential store that celebrates the heritage of San Francisco airport, is located near Gate B3, and Bourbon Pub, a local favorite helmed by Chef Michael Mina, offers delicious bar fare and beverages near Gate B7/B8.
These concepts will not only enhance the customer experience at SFO, but also embody the airport’s spirit of innovation, focus on the environment and sustainability, and commitment to diversity, equality and inclusion.
