Tom’s Urban Kitchen & Brewery Opens at Denver International Airport

Eatertainment Restaurant Partners with Tivoli Brewery and Midfield
Concession Enterprises to Expand Footprint with First Airport Location

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tom’s
Urban
, the fast growing Eatertainment concept and full-service
restaurant in a modern casual dining environment, today announced the
opening of Tom’s Urban Kitchen & Brewery, its fifth restaurant and
first-ever airport location at the Westin Hotel, located directly across
from the Denver International Airport. Tom’s Urban Kitchen & Brewery is
the result of a partnership with Tivoli Brewery and Midfield Concession
Enterprises. The opening at the airport also reflects the company’s
focus on growing the brand at non-traditional locations.

Tom’s Urban Kitchen & Brewery pairs the unique cuisine of Tom’s Urban
with the celebrated craft beers of Tivoli Brewery, bringing together two
celebrated Colorado brands to give visitors a taste of local flavor.
Tivoli takes pride in the art of brewing and developing the finest
quality beer, carefully crafted over 42 days. As historic brewers with
150 years of business in Colorado, Tivoli’s deep local roots made them
an ideal fit for an on-site brewery partner for Tom’s Urban.

“We are continually looking for opportunities to bring the infectious
energy of Tom’s Urban to new locations, and are thrilled to be right at
the front door of Denver International Airport to welcome visitors to
Colorado,” commented Tom Ryan, co-founder of Tom’s Urban. “Our
partnership with Tivoli Brewery makes this a very unique location for
us, and we look forward to giving travelers the opportunity to relax and
enjoy our creative cuisine, lethally delicious cocktails, and Tivoli’s
craft beers as part of their travels.”

Added Shannon McNiel, president and chief operating officer for Tom’s
Urban: “Denver has such a vibrant restaurant culture that aligns
perfectly with Tom’s Urban’s focus on delivering the ultimate restaurant
and entertainment experience. Having the opportunity to share that
experience with guests visiting from other parts of the country and
world in our hometown makes this milestone even more exciting for us.”

In March of 2016, as part of its engagement with Tom’s Urban’s parent
company, Black Shamrock Partners, Midfield Concessions Enterprises also
brought sister company Smashburger to Denver International Airport. Both
are part of a strategy to bring interesting brands to non-traditional
locations, from travel sites to college campuses.

“We are thrilled to bring the Tom’s Urban Kitchen & Brewery Brand, and
our award-winning designs and customer focused programs to Denver
International Airport,” commented Andrea Hachem, Chief Executive Officer
of Midfield Concession Enterprises, Inc.

“The brand has proven itself a unique leader in the market and we
couldn’t think of a better location to share the concept’s energetic
vibe,” added Dean Hachem, Chief Operating Officer of Midfield Concession
Enterprises, Inc. “We are excited to bring to our Denver guests our
world class customer focused hospitality experience in partnership with
the brands of Tom’s Urban Kitchen and Tivoli Brewery.”
