Flying Food Group launches new kitchen at San Francisco

Flying Food Group has launched a new inflight catering kitchen at San Francisco (SFO) Airport, completing its final phase of a $100 million-plus retrofit and upgrade to its national network.

The new facility joins the network of 17 Flying Food Group kitchens, stretching from Hawaii to New York, and adds extensive production capacity designed to ensure catering best practice and workflow strategies says Nicolas Rondeau, Flying Food Group executive vice president airline sales & marketing. The 71,000-square-foot (6600 sum) kitchen includes fully-refrigerated dock and production areas, providing enhanced food safety. The building’s single-story structure adds production and work flow efficiencies.

Flying Food Group customers at San Francisco include Hawaiian Airlines, Japan Airlines, ANA, Air France-KLM and Asiana among others. The facilities upgrade project also includes new kitchens at Los Angeles and Honolulu and an expanded, renovated kitchen at Miami.
