Dallas Fort Worth International Airport hopes to add dozens of new dining, retail, and service establishments across its terminals.

The airport announced Tuesday that it had issued a public Request for Proposals for 38 new retail and dining locations in terminals across the airport. The announcement comes as the airport will begin a $5 billion construction project later this year that will include new facilities, such as an additional terminal.

Interested parties have until August 12 to submit their proposals, which can be in categories ranging from food and beverage concepts to retail stores and unique service offerings like nap centers or entertainment venues.

“Over the next few years, DFW will be nearly doubling the space available to its already world-class shopping and dining program,” said Ken Buchanan, executive vice president of revenue management and customer experience.

“This is an all-inclusive opportunity for both our veteran concessionaires to consider expanding, as well as for newcomers in the community who operate street locations or other small businesses, to participate in the tremendous economic opportunity that DFW provides. We are committed to including small, diverse companies who represent local flavors or national brands,” Buchanan added.

As part of the expansion, new gates will be added to Terminals A and C, with Terminal C also undergoing reconstruction.

CEO Sean Donohue outlined a phased approach to the expansion, emphasizing a strategy of “tear down and rebuild” that commenced last October with renovations to nearby parking facilities, reported The Dallas Morning News.

Construction for Terminal F is projected to be completed by the end of 2026, per DMN. The airport noted in the press release that concession opportunities for the new terminal, as well as additional retail and dining opportunities, will be announced later this year.

As previously reported by The Dallas Express, these enhancements and additions come only a month after airport officials announced multiple new fee hikes.
