Airport dining gets an all-American flavour with Frankie & Benny’s

East Midlands Airport and TRG Concessions are delighted to announce the opening of family favourite, Frankie & Benny’s, in the Departures Lounge at East Midlands Airport.

Adorned with the famous memorabilia and Frankie’s merchandise, passengers who step inside the restaurant will feel instantly transported to a 1950’s all-American diner, complete with friendly staff and efficient service.

Frankie & Benny’s is open from the small hours of the morning accommodating those getting the earliest of flights, offering a specially developed breakfast menu that includes everything from free range eggs & bacon, to fully loaded bagels and all-American pancakes. Frankie’s is proud to incorporate the best of all things American and Italian and there really is something for everyone. 

Passengers can choose from flavour-packed burgers, fully loaded pizzas, hearty bowls of pasta and succulent BBQ ribs. Dishes are perfectly accompanied by something from the bar - a mug of freshly ground coffee, fruit smoothie or - if something more exotic is preferred - a cocktail from the vast drinks menu.

Frankie’s is open until the very last flight to ensure no passenger will go hungry or thirsty.
Just in time for a busy summer ahead, Frankie & Benny’s also offers a fantastic range of lighter dishes to appeal to those seeking healthier options. For something a little more indulgent, the thick and decadent malts & shakes come in various flavours from Oreo cookie to banana & caramel.

TRG Concessions, one of the leading operators of restaurants, bars and coffee shops in the UK's busiest airports. Nick Ayerst, Managing Director, commented: “We are thrilled to be opening our first business at East Midlands Airport, continually strengthening our bond with M.A.G. We are looking forward to offering a fantastic range of freshly cooked food to passengers by our talented and enthusiastic team of waiting staff.”

Beth Brewster, Retail Director, M.A.G, owner of East Midlands Airport, commented: "The arrival of Frankie and Benny’s is just in time for the peak summer months and we have been delighted to work with TRG to bring the brand to East Midlands Airport.

"We want our passenger's holidays to begin the moment they arrive and what a better start, than an all-American diner experience in the airport's newest restaurant.

"We want to ensure that we offer an increasingly diverse range of retail options for the millions of passengers who use East Midlands Airport and we believe that Frankie & Benny’s will be a huge hit amongst our customers.”
