SSP America has formed an exclusive agreement with Briggo Coffee to launch an initiative to introduce a kiosk concept to US and Canadian airports.
By ordering ahead from the Briggo mobile app or on the Coffee Haus touchscreens, passengers can customise their latte, cappucino or other gourmet hot and iced coffee and tea drinks.
Using Briggo’s robotic technology, drinks are crafted from custom whole-bean blends, fresh dairy and gourmet syrups at a rate of up to 100 cups per hour. The fully-automated kiosks can operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“The SSP America team is passionate about bringing cool, authentic brands to airports,” commented Pat Murray, executive vice president, at SSP America. “Briggo delivers serious innovation to brewing coffee we believe will enhance the traveller’s experience. It’s quick and the quality is impeccable. We think airports are going to find Briggo an excellent addition to their retail landscape given its small footprint, minimal requirements and turnkey installation.”
SSP suggest Briggo’s Coffee Haus is an ideal additional feature for high-traffic locations where quality and convenience are in high demand.
Briggo’s Coffee Haus features its own Briggo Blend of Arabica beans, and in addition to this, SSP America and Briggo will also work with airport teams to select local brands to showcase.
Briggo’s chief executive officer Kevin Nater said the partnership would allow them to “significantly increase the speed and scale at which we enable access to specialty coffee in airports.”
