Jacksonville travelers have a new hot dining spot for when they fly in and out of Jacksonville International Airport.
The Great American Bagel, a bakery and deli concept with fresh bagels baked daily, is located pre-security in the Center Courtyard, next to Burger King.
That area itself also went through a recent renovation, with new terrazzo flooring to match the rest of the terminal and modern new furniture.
The eatery is operated by Host-Lee JAX FB LLLC, a joint venture between HMSHost and Lee Wesley Group.
Its the ninth new concession concept or remodel at the airport in 2016. New vendors include "Made in JAX," Amelia Island Market Place, Best Buy Express and Benefit Cosmetics. InMotion, Starbucks, Burger King and CNBC News Stand all have remodeled.
HMSHost, the master concessionaire for JIA, has plans for additional changes as well. Significant changes to the Budweiser Track and Grill, Chili's Too and the food court are in the works.
