Chick-Fil-A closes at Dayton Airport, leaders look to fill space

Dayton International Airport leaders are working to fill the concession space that was vacated as Chick-Fil-A closed today.

Chick-Fil-A’s lease at the Dayton airport ended after six years, according to a statement from the city.

There isn’t a lot of information to be shared yet, said Linda Hughes, air service manager at the airport. But the master concessionaire is now working on contract changes and “looking at the options” to fill the space, she said.

“Hopefully a decision will be made soon and we will have another restaurant or that restaurant, something that will be operating there shortly,” Hughes said.

Meanwhile, the airport is still home to two Starbucks locations, MVP Bar and Grill, Quiznos, Max & Erma’s, 12th Fairway Bar and Grill and the Great American Bagel.
