Tom’s Urban Kitchen & Brewery Opens at Denver International Airport

November 8, 2018

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 8, 2018--Tom’s Urban, the fast growing Eatertainment concept and full-service restaurant in a modern casual dining environment, today announced the opening of Tom’s Urban Kitchen & Brewery, its fifth restaurant and first-ever airport location at the Westin Hotel, located directly across from the Denver International Airport. Tom’s Urban Kitchen & Brewery is the result of a partnership with Tivoli Brewery and Midfield Concession Enterprises. The opening at the airport also reflects the company’s focus on growing the brand at non-traditional locations.

Tom’s Urban Kitchen & Brewery pairs the unique cuisine of Tom’s Urban with the celebrated craft beers of Tivoli Brewery, bringing together two celebrated Colorado brands to give visitors a taste of local flavor. Tivoli takes pride in the art of brewing and developing the finest quality beer, carefully crafted over 42 days. As historic brewers with 150 years of business in Colorado, Tivoli’s deep local roots made them an ideal fit for an on-site brewery partner for Tom’s Urban.

“We are continually looking for opportunities to bring the infectious energy of Tom’s Urban to new locations, and are thrilled to be right at the front door of Denver International Airport to welcome visitors to Colorado,” commented Tom Ryan, co-founder of Tom’s Urban. “Our partnership with Tivoli Brewery makes this a very unique location for us, and we look forward to giving travelers the opportunity to relax and enjoy our creative cuisine, lethally delicious cocktails, and Tivoli’s craft beers as part of their travels.”

Added Shannon McNiel, president and chief operating officer for Tom’s Urban: “Denver has such a vibrant restaurant culture that aligns perfectly with Tom’s Urban’s focus on delivering the ultimate restaurant and entertainment experience. Having the opportunity to share that experience with guests visiting from other parts of the country and world in our hometown makes this milestone even more exciting for us.”

In March of 2016, as part of its engagement with Tom’s Urban’s parent company, Black Shamrock Partners, Midfield Concessions Enterprises also brought sister company Smashburger to Denver International Airport. Both are part of a strategy to bring interesting brands to non-traditional locations, from travel sites to college campuses.

“We are thrilled to bring the Tom’s Urban Kitchen & Brewery Brand, and our award-winning designs and customer focused programs to Denver International Airport,” commented Andrea Hachem, Chief Executive Officer of Midfield Concession Enterprises, Inc.

“The brand has proven itself a unique leader in the market and we couldn’t think of a better location to share the concept’s energetic vibe,” added Dean Hachem, Chief Operating Officer of Midfield Concession Enterprises, Inc. “We are excited to bring to our Denver guests our world class customer focused hospitality experience in partnership with the brands of Tom’s Urban Kitchen and Tivoli Brewery.”

Tom’s Urban is owned by Black Shamrock Partners, formerly Consumer Concept Group, a Denver-based investment and operating company, focused on launching, operating and investing in Experience Based Lifestyle Economy brands in the consumer, lifestyle and event sectors.
