Milano, 20 December 2001 - HMSHost, the Autogrill Group’s US subsidiary, has been granted an early renewal of its main concession, which was due to expire in 2003. Its contract with the Florida’s Turnpike for management of all highway locations has been extended for 5 years, with overall annual revenues totalling more than 50 million dollars. Projected turnover for the full term of the agreement will therefore be approximately 350 million dollars. The highway concerned, one of the three most important in the United States, is a 250-mile stretch from Orlando to Miami and South Florida, which is used by about 200 million people every year.
For HMSHost, which has been operating on the Florida’s Turnpike since the 1980s, the renewal is a major confirmation of its offer, which today includes such high-profile brands as Burger King, Sbarro, Starbucks, Miami Subs and Cinnabon.
