Plum Market Travel Services, an airport concessions operator and Prime Vendor, has signed a strategic license agreement to operate and develop Starbucks coffee locations within U.S. airports, starting this year. The collaboration unites Starbucks’ coffee expertise and industry leadership with Plum Market Travel Services’ established track record in managing successful food and beverage operations within the travel retail arena, according to the companies.

“We strive to offer travelers the top brands they enjoy, whether at home or on their journeys,” noted Matthew Jonna, CEO of Plum Market Travel Services. “Welcoming Starbucks as our premium coffee partner is a natural step forward as we elevate the guest experience in our new airport locations.”
