Concessions for the new terminal Concessions for the new terminal

When PDX's new main terminal opens in 2024, we're bringing the neighborhoods of Portland indoors. In the new, tree-lined marketplace, you'll be able to hang out on the stadium stairs, listening to musicians, or browse through local shops and grab a bite from a favorite restaurant.

This September, the Portland International Airport concessions team will issue an RFP (request for proposals) looking for local retail shops and restaurants to occupy spaces in both the pre-security and post-security shopping areas. We believe PDX showcases the best of Portland--the brands that make locals feel at home and make visitors fall in love with our corner of the Northwest. We're putting equity at the center of our leasing process, and encouraging woman-owned and BIPOC-owned businesses to apply. After all, PDX is known nationwide for the strength of our local partnerships.

Three things to know

Want to open your shop at PDX? The RFP comes out in early September 2022, and applications are due in December 2022.

Both pre- and post-security spaces are projected to open in spring 2024.

Make an appointment to speak with the concessions team now. Once the RFP comes out, we pause our one-on-one conversations for fairness and transparency, so the time to get the inside scoop is now!
