In partnership with Los Angeles World Airports, we’re excited to offer the opportunity to lease three new quick-service dining units at LAX Terminal 3. Terminal 3 is currently under renovation as part of LAX’s Terminal 2 and 3 Modernization Project with Delta Air Lines. The three units are the last of 13 total new spaces in the Terminal 3 redevelopment program.
These three spaces are flexible to be used for quick-service dining or, in an exciting new innovation, as a ghost kitchen. URW, along with LAWA and Breeze, successfully launched one of the first airport ghost kitchens in December 2019.
The units can be used as a multi-unit counter service operation or as a multi-unit Ghost Kitchen that also includes counter service. Units would connect into the existing LAXOrderNow mobile order platform which may also include delivery to gate service. Operators are encouraged to be creative in maximizing product offering for all hours in order to best serve the public.
The Terminal 3 leasing opportunity is open to all businesses. Interested small, local business and certified Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (ACDBE) operators are encouraged to compete for the leasing opportunities. Recently, URW evolved its Competitive Evaluation Process (CEP) to enhance inclusivity and incentivize small, local business and ACDBE participation. In addition, to better serve today’s socially conscious consumers, URW is challenging bidders to deliver innovative proposals that highlight their commitment to sustainability and positive social impact.

LAX’s Terminal 2 and 3 Modernization Project is a $1.86 billion project that will modernize and upgrade the terminals and connect them to the Tom Bradley International Terminal. When completed, the reconstructed Terminal 3 concourse, home to Delta Air Lines, will ease congestion and enhance connectivity both pre- and post-security between Terminals 2 and 3. The renovated terminals will feature 14 dining and retail destinations occupying nearly 15,000 square feet, nearly 3,000 more square feet when compared to before construction began. Terminal 3 is projected to re-open fully in mid-2023, 18 months ahead of the project’s original schedule.
