DFW Airport Launches $5 Billion Expansion, Seeks Proposals for 38 New Retail and Dining Spots

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has announced plans for significant expansion, with construction set to begin on over $5 billion worth of new terminal facilities later this year. To complement this expansion, the airport is issuing a public Request for Proposals (RFP) for 38 new retail and dining locations across all terminals, marking the largest single concessions opportunity at DFW since 2005.

The RFP package, available for submissions until Aug. 12, includes 17 food and beverage concepts and 17 retail stores, aiming to enhance DFW's current portfolio of over 200 concessions. The opportunities range from grab-and-go options to sit-down restaurants and retail services.

"Over the next few years, DFW will be nearly doubling the space available to its already world-class shopping and dining program,” said Ken Buchanan, Executive Vice President of Revenue Management and Customer Experience. “This is an all-inclusive opportunity for both our veteran concessionaires to consider expanding, as well as for newcomers in the community who operate street locations or other small businesses, to participate in the tremendous economic opportunity that DFW provides. We are committed to including small, diverse companies who represent local flavors or national brands.”

DFW, which served a record 81.7 million passengers in 2023, is projected to surpass 100 million customers annually by 2030. To accommodate this growth, the airport plans to expand its capacity by adding gates in Terminals A and C, constructing an all-new Terminal F, and reconstructing Terminal C. More retail and dining opportunities, including those for Terminal F, will be announced later this year.

DFW Concessions' website provides resources and information for prospective concessionaires, including previous outreach presentations and a database of businesses interested in partnership opportunities. Interested parties can visit for more details.
