Barburrito expands into airports

The brand's partnership with Edinburgh Airport resulted in a new airport site.

Opened in December, the outlet is the chain's first outlet in a UK airport and its 8th in Scotland.

Morgan Davies, founder and CEO of Barburrito said, “This is a huge milestone for Barburrito - I am thrilled to be opening our first store inside an airport and what this means for the future of Barburrito. This is the start of an exciting partnership with TRG Concessions and Edinburgh airport. With an established operating model working across 21 locations, we felt that it was time to explore a franchise operation with a sector leader in this space. Edinburgh Airport is a fantastic location to launch the first of these. My first ever job was working in the sky shops at Edinburgh Airport and it is personally exciting to be returning to open a business in this fantastic location."

Nick Ayerst, managing director of TRG Concessions said, “We are excited to be working with Barburrito to bring a concept that’s new to Edinburgh Airport. We are certain Barburrito will be well received by passengers. We are looking forward to further strengthening the food and beverage offer at the airport and look forward to developing the relationship with our new partners."

Backed by growth capital provider, BGF, the business is constantly on the lookout for new sites as it continues to expand its business.
