Prospective Vendor Information

We welcome your interest in doing business at MSP. The airport’s concessions are mostly awarded through an RFP (Request for Proposal) process.

The Metropolitan Airports Commission also offers a cart program, which allows vendors to lease a cart, or a space to build your own kiosk, to better serve MSP’s diverse customer base. 

The airport environment is different from that of a mall, as people are not necessarily here to shop; they are here to travel. However, our shops and restaurants provide our travelers and employees with some terrific and unique opportunities. The cart program is a key component of the airport’s retail offerings. 

As part of the cart program, the MAC has developed an application process to make it easier and more affordable to operate a business at MSP. Click on the documents below to learn more.   

If you are interested in operating a cart or kiosk at MSP, please fill out the Cart Leasing Application and submit it to Isabella.rhawie@mspmac.org. We will notify you when a cart becomes available.
