Elevate Gourmet Brands® eye-catching grab n’ go marketplace concept Pronto!® is in the final stages of build-out on its first brick-and-mortar location in SFO’s Terminal 3E. Boasting “curated provisions, sourced locally”, Pronto takes a unique approach to the airport grab n’ go marketplace: partnering exclusively with purveyors from the San Francisco Bay Area’s many distinct neighborhoods and communities to offer airport travelers, employees and flight crews a curated menu of provisions they would otherwise not be able to find at the airport, packaged and ready for departure– Pronto!
Pronto’s SFO T3-E location will open in early October with featured purveyors Burma Love, Esposto’s Meals, Epicurean, Panini Time (The Box Lunch Company), Voila Juice, Green Beans Coffee Co. and Ladle & Leaf. A curated selection of hot and cold grab n’ go products and pre-packaged meals from these purveyors will be available, with additional purveyors being added on a rolling basis.
Burma Love, with locations in the Mission and Downtown San Francisco, has been bringing the flavors of Burma to the Bay Area for two decades. Esposto’s Meals, headquartered in South San Francisco, has been serving food in the Bay Area for over 50 years. Epicurean boasts “Fresh, Honest, Local” foods and takes pride in being a “values-based company that operates on the principles of high quality, integrity, and sustainability.” Voila Juices was established in Berkeley, California during the summer of 1978 and began its life in the form of a small and colorful juice cart set up in front of the Downtown Bart Station by partners Gary Boland and Dale Allen. Ladle & Leaf, with locations from San Francisco to Oakland to Palo Alto, believes in “keeping your friends close, and your farmers closer” and offers gourmet soups, mac & cheese, and hand-tossed salads.
“We’re thrilled to partner with these diverse San Francisco-area vendors and offer their amazing products to SFO travelers,” Elevate Gourmet Brands Director of Non-Traditional Development George Kennedy said. “We’re looking forward to adding more local Bay Area vendors’ unique products and pre-packaged meals to this location in the weeks and months ahead.”
The Terminal 3-E marketplace is the first of two Pronto locations Elevate Gourmet Brands will open at SFO; a Terminal 3 location is planned to open in late spring 2023.
