Kind Hospitality, a firm specializing in presenting elevated — and kind — dining experiences at airport and streetside restaurants, recently opened its latest location within Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport featuring two popular homegrown brands.
The airport is operated by the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority. PMGAA consists of representation from Apache Junction, Mesa, Queen Creek, Gilbert, Gila River Indian Community and Phoenix.
On April 24 Kind Hospitality celebrated the opening of its latest venture featuring Infusion Coffee & Tea Crafters and Queen Creek Olive Mill in the baggage claim area of the airport at 6033 S. Sossaman Road, according to a release.
“We are excited to grow Infusion Coffee & Tea Crafters into a greater footprint,” Nava Singam, owner and CEO of Kind Hospitality, said in the release. “And we are very proud to bring Queen Creek Olive Mill to Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport and to showcase their offerings to traveling passengers.”
This marks the second Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport location for Infusion Coffee & Tea Crafters, which offers travelers a wide variety of coffee- and tea-based concoctions such as coffees, cold brews, matcha tea lattes, classic espresso drinks, specialty drinks and more. The restaurant also offers bakery items such as a cheese danish, almond or butter croissant and a yogurt parfait as well as salads and sandwiches from chicken Caesar salad to a classic ham and cheddar sandwich.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with such a professional organization as Kind Hospitality and very proud to have two locations inside Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport,” Patrick O’Malley, owner of Infusion Coffee & Tea Crafters, said in the release. “This has been a wonderful collaboration with Kind Hospitality and the airport.”
The unit also features a retail component of Queen Creek Olive Mill, providing travelers with a selection of the brand’s most popular olives and oils such as balanced extra virgin olive oil, meyer lemon olive oil, fig balsamic reduction, vermouth garlic stuffed olives, asiago parmesan tapenade and more.
“Partnering with Kind Hospitality for the opening of their new location at Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport is an exciting opportunity for the Queen Creek Olive Mill,” John Rea, director of marketing for Queen Creek Olive Mill, said in the release. “We’re proud to be able to share our passion for high-quality, handcrafted products with travelers coming from around the nation.”
