SSP America Creating Restaurant Jobs With The Mayor of Flavortown, Guy Fieri

Ever wonder ‘are there any exciting career openings near me?’ SSP America is proud to have opened an exciting new restaurant at Newark Liberty International Airport, in partnership with Guy Fieri, called Flavortown Kitchen + Bar. 

A little over a year ago, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey embarked on a complete redevelopment of Newark Liberty International Airport that began with the opening of the new Terminal A, the centerpiece of an airport-wide renaissance designed to establish the airport as a world-class gateway for the New Jersey and New York region. The new terminal is a harbinger of America’s future aviation industry considering the significant investment taking place and the numerous restaurant jobs available.

Flavortown’s hearty menu offerings and refreshing beverages from one of the most recognizable celebrity chefs in the world add to the award-winning terminal’s diverse dining options and one-of-a-kind sense of place. Flavortown is derived from a well-known Fieri reference to a place that didn’t exist––Flavortown––which came about on Food Network’s hugely popular “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.” 

The design is inspired by Fieri’s exuberant personality combined with a local industrial vibe. The space unfolds around a large bar, surrounded by seating areas and bordered by elements reminiscent of shipping containers covered with Fieri’s signature graphics. The triple-height volume above the restaurant is bordered by an oversized Flavortown illuminated sign visible throughout the terminal. 

The menu has a bit of everything, from the Big Breakfast Burrito to the Ain’t No Thing Butta Chicken Wing, or the OG Caesar Salad to the Bacon Mac-N-Cheese Burger. No matter what they’re in the mood for, patrons can wash it down with a fun cocktail like the Guy Tai, the Cucumber Gin Fizz, or the Ginger Mule. The menu boasts 10 signature cocktails, 10 draft beers, nine bottled beers, and 10 wine options. 

Representatives from the Port Authority are singing Flavortown’s praises: 

“The addition of the Flavortown Kitchen + Bar to Terminal A underscores our effort to bring passengers exciting amenities and dining options to complement this stunning, award-winning new terminal. Guy’s bold and hearty offerings pair perfectly with Terminal A, as we dish up a streamlined, state-of-the-art traveling experience with a side of distinctive architecture, diverse dining, and local art.” – Port Authority Executive Director Rick Cotton

And so are SSP America leaders:

“We’re proud to be part of the Newark Liberty community, and we’re also now official citizens of Flavortown, and as Chef Guy says, ‘Plan to take passengers on a road-rockin’ trip down to Flavortown.’” – SSP America Senior Vice President of Development and Airport Retention Paul Loupakos
