Kosher food landed at the world’s busiest airport with the entrance of Fuego Mundo, a popular local Latin-American woodfire grill. The restaurant, certified by the Atlanta Kosher Commission, operates at four kiosks in Concourse A of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Delta Air Lines and other major carriers use Concourse A.
The restaurant has a full menu and catering business at its location at The Prado in Sandy Springs. To start, the airport kiosks offered organic hummus and chips, homemade chicken salad wraps and smoked turkey breast sandwiches that ranged at that time from $16 to $24.
Manager Sheyla Miranda told the AJT Fuego Mundo would “monitor volume and sales to be able to rotate in new items and ensure quality.”
Working closely with owner Udi Herschkovitz, Miranda said at the time, “The airport sets the prices, and we have their agreement to discard anything not sold in 24 hours. We look forward to being featured on apps that direct kosher travelers accordingly.”
Having kosher options is especially important for those on long trips making connecting flights through the airport with layovers. Kosher customers expect to pay a bit more for the convenience of having options at the airport.
Ironically, the Fuego Mundo kiosks in Concourse A are located next to Goldberg’s, a popular Jewish-style retailer, although not kosher.
