Hudsons Coffee – Brisbane Airport – FAB Award Winner 2016 for Airport Coffee Shop of the Year Globally
Hudsons Coffee in Brisbane Airport was delivered under the guiding hand of Adam Summerville, who is at the steer of Ground Control. The coffee shop was named Airport Coffee Shop of the Year by FAB in 2016, a global retail awards body that puts the highlight on prestigious F&B roll-outs. Following this award, Hudsons also received a silver medal for Interior Design at the 2016 Sydney Design Awards & Summit.
These two awards recognise the immense growth in popularity Hudsons have seen in recent years, affirming its significant contribution to the rise of the travel retail sector. The FAB judges were impressed by the seamless way in which Hudsons connect with the rest of the airport and the aesthetically pleasing sense of ‘place’ and ‘belonging’ it creates in such a limited physical space.
Brisbane Airport invested millions of dollars into revamping its International Terminal, a project Hudsons’ roll-out formed a part of. The redeveloped terminal was designed with the intent of capturing Brisbane’s warm personality and forward-thinking innovation with a strong focus on specialty F&B outlets to offer passengers a top selection of local produce. The inviting doors of Hudsons perfectly fit this description.
According to Summerville, the Hudsons outlet testify Ground Control’s dedication to designing and delivering innovative, world-class concepts.
Specialising in a range of premium coffee blends, Hudsons also breakfast items and light lunch meals. Along with the high-speed internet, this coffee haven is a highly popular hangout spot for travelers to refresh with a hot cappuccino while reading a book or catching up on some work.
