Doing Business

Bring Your Business to the World

The Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) leases retail, passenger services, and food & beverage concessions space at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) — one of the nation’s busiest airports and a hub for Delta Air Lines. Our airport business community prides itself on providing high-quality products and services to the 38 million travelers from all over the world who pass through MSP annually.

MSP's award-winning concessions program features 125 restaurants and shops, including 80 that have opened in just the last five years.

Our concession program in recent years has received the ACI-NA Richard A. Griesbach Award for Overall Excellence; and the Best Overall Airport Offering award from the 2019 Moodie Davitt Report FAB Awards.

The MAC seeks high-quality partners who offer concessions that will complement the MSP concessions program and creatively reflect the region’s economy, culture and quality of life. As the airport is often a visitor's first impression of the region, the MSP's concessions program aims to provide customers with unique, engaging shopping and dining experiences that they’ll remember and want to revisit. 

For our MSP vendors, we seek operators who understand the importance of providing it all to customers: engaging spaces, innovative products, and outstanding service. From live music at Republic, to opportunities to talk beer with local brewers at Stone Arch, to finding that perfect read at Open Book, our blend of local and national brands provides varied offerings for a wide range of travelers.
