Legal Sea Foods and L'Occitane win awards at Philadelphia International Airport

Philadelphia International Airport concessionaire MarketPlace PHL has named Legal Sea Foods and L’OCCITANE, both located in the B/C Connector, as its restaurant and retailer of the last quarter.

The Philadelphia Marketplace’s Cutting EDGE! Program (Excellence Drives Great Experiences) is designed to motivate and reward merchants.

Each merchant can earn EDGE! points through great customer service and participation in marketing programmes and, at the end of each quarter, the food and retail merchants with the most points are named Merchants of the Quarter.

Legal Sea Foods offers everything under the sea, including signature menu items such as lobster, crab cakes, New England clam chowder, shrimp, salmon and a variety of sandwiches, salads and desserts.

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and takeout to the gateway's passengers.

L’OCCITANE is a global and natural ingredient-based skincare, body care and fragrance brand with strong regional roots in Provence, France.

Its products include personal care for the face, body and hair for women and men, as well as items for the home, travel and gifts.

“The Cutting Edge! Programme showcases merchants that demonstrate our high standards for customer service each and every day,” said Mel Hannah, vice president and general manager of MarketPlace PHL.

“Congratulations to Legal Sea Foods and L’OCCITANE for earning this special recognition.”

MarketPlace PHL is the private partner with the City of Philadelphia in the management of the food and retail programme throughout Philadelphia International Airport.

The award-winning food and retail programme consists of 170 in-line stores, restaurants and services, plus an average of 20 specialty retail units throughout Terminals A–West through F.

MarketPlace PHL is a partnership between MarketPlace Development, a Boston-based airport retail development firm, and LeJeune & Associates, a Philadelphia-based retail development, management and consulting firm.
