Richard Townsend, retail and property director at Edinburgh Airport, said: “Improving facilities and options for passengers is important to us and we want to ensure they have a variety of places they can relax in.

“It’s great to see renowned brands like Barburrito coming to work with us and wanting to be part of Scotland’s busiest airport as passenger figures continue to grow.

“So not only are we adding more choice for destinations but we’re adding more choice of cuisine, and we will be delivering even greater options as part of our terminal expansion project.”

Barburrito currently operates seven sites in Scotland across Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen.

Morgan Davies, CEO of Barburrito, said: “This is the start of an exciting partnership with TRG Concessions and Edinburgh airport. With an established operating model working across 21 locations, we felt that it was time to explore a franchise operation with a sector leader in this space.

“Edinburgh Airport is a fantastic location to launch the first of these. My first ever job was working in the sky shops at Edinburgh Airport and it is personally exciting to be returning to open a business at this fantastic airport.”
