Concessions Redevelopment Program

The Concessions Redevelopment Program will reflect Chicago’s diversity and showcase the best of local options and brands through a $75 million private partnership investment. With more than 70 offerings planned, the effort will double concessions jobs from 700 to 1,400.

At the beginning of the year, construction resumed on Sarah’s Candies at gate B2 and got underway on Hudson Non-Stop at gate B21. Both locations are expected to open this Spring.
