Earlier this year, YVR celebrated the opening of the expanded Domestic Terminal A-B Connector, which features new gate capacity, an expedited baggage system, seismic upgrades and a wide range of new dining and shopping options.
The 19.4-million passengers who travelled through YVR in 2014 were able to enjoy an array of street-priced food and beverage options at the many in-terminal restaurants. From ethnic staples such as sushi and samosas to Canadian standards—coffee and donuts—YVR has no shortage of offerings to tame the fiercest of appetites.
The following are some of the newest food-and-beverage concessions available before and after security.
Everyone wins when two fantastic organizations come together. In this instance, travellers through YVR are the biggest winners since they are now able to pick up and enjoy their favourite Booster Juice Smoothie, fresh squeezed juice or food item prior to going through security.
“This is a great opportunity for us to continue to grow in the Lower Mainland,” said Dale S. Wishewan, Booster Juice president and CEO. “I know travellers and airport employees will be excited, based on the positive feedback we received on our airport locations in Edmonton, Ottawa, Halifax and our newly opened location at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.”
As Canada’s leader in the juice and smoothie bar industry, Booster Juice provides a winning concept with exceptional products, which have been embraced by consumers worldwide through its more than 300 locations. The company’s dedication to providing customers with a healthy alternative that is great tasting, convenient and nutritious has made Booster Juice perfectly suited to today’s healthy and active lifestyles.
In addition to freshly prepared smoothies, Booster Juice also offers fresh-squeezed juices, freshly grilled wraps and paninis, energizing shots and products containing “Super Foods”.
“Our commitment to a healthy lifestyle extends beyond the counter as we sponsor, donate and participate in community programs that support the same beliefs,” said Wishewan.
Booster Juice Location: Before Security, Level 3, Domestic Terminal Food Court. Open 6am to 9pm.
