Hojeij Branded Foods (HBF) has acquired North America´s largest airport wine bar and wine retail chain Vino Volo, creating a powerful new partnership, bringing together two companies that share an unwavering commitment to quality and an outstanding guest experience, the company said.
Currently with more than 40 locations in 32 airports throughout North America, Vino Volo (Italian for “wine flight”) has an unparalleled reputation for offering guests a premier experience with wines from around the world by the glass.
Like HBF, Vino Volo has received extensive accolades from the industry, counting 34 Airport Revenue News awards, including “Food Operator with Highest Regard for Customer Service” 11 years in a row and “Best Airport Wine Bar” at the Airport Food & Beverage awards. With the company´s commitment to bringing the wine country experience to business travelers, Vino Volo has become a customer favorite by offering a relaxed, knowledgeable atmosphere and the combined services of a lounge, restaurant-quality light bites and wine shop to travelers on the go.
With the retention of Vino Volo founder Tomlinson as president, Vino Volo will become a wholly owned subsidiary of HBF, run by Vino Volo´s current leadership team under the leadership of the HBF CEO.
Together, HBF and Vino Volo are exceptionally well positioned to embrace and enhance HBF´s mission of “enhancing the passenger´s dining experience, one airport at a time.”
Hojeij Branded Foods (HBF) is an Atlanta-based company operating more than 70 restaurants and bars across 14 airports in the United States. HBF´s portfolio includes over 40 widely known national, regional, and local brands that range from full service to fast casual and quick serve.
Vino Volo establishments combine an upscale wine lounge, restaurant and boutique wine shop under one roof, and are primarily located in airports across North America.
