EAT wins coveted outlet at Heathrow’s Terminal 2

Sandwich chain EAT has won the bid to open the largest Food to Go retail outlet in Heathrow’s Terminal 2: The Queen’s Terminal, scheduled to open in June 2014.

The new 4,200 square foot store, being built with an investment of £1 million, will feature the latest digital technology such as self-service tills, multilingual information points, digital menu boards and wrap around screens in the booths.

At the heart of the design is the store’s kitchen where customers will be able to see the hot food menu being prepared and served. In addition, space in the store will be zoned to provide different areas for individual travellers, groups and families, and those either in a hurry or with time to sit down and relax.

Adrian Johnson, EAT chief executive, said: "We are very excited to bring to our Terminal 2 store a concept that we see being the vision for the future of good food-to-go. In developing new ideas, we worked closely with the team at Heathrow to ensure that our service and food offer would set a new standard, both within transit and the food market place."

Muriel Zingraff-Shariff, Heathrow’s retail director, added: "EAT’s popularity with passengers at Heathrow so far shows us that their menu really resonates with international customers, so asking the team to join us at Terminal 2 was an easy decision. Terminal 2 will be their largest outlet so far, offering passengers a freshly prepared meal with innovative digital interfaces designed to help make the most of busy passenger’s time."
