Fazoli’s Touching Down in Phoenix Airport for Grand Opening


Nation’s Largest Italian QSR Brand Opens New Location in Terminal 4 at Sky Harbor International

PHOENIX, Feb. 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — It’s Fast. Fresh. Italian. FAT (Fresh. Authentic. Tasty.) Brands Inc., parent company of Fazoli’s, is pleased to announce that Fazoli’s has opened at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. 

Located at 3800 E. Sky Harbor Blvd. inside Terminal 4 between gates B6 and B13, next to O.H.S.O. Brewery, the popular brand is now serving up its beloved buttery breadsticks, as well as its signature Italian dishes to a whole host of travelers and locals alike. And even if you’re coming through on a red-eye flight, Fazoli’s is still the perfect place to stop for a bite to eat, thanks to its brand-new breakfast menu – including Hot Honey Chicken and Egg Breakfast Sandwiches, Cinnamon Swirl Breadstick Bites, Breakfast Burritos and so much more – unique to the PHX location! 


“Whether you’re flying into or out of Phoenix, nothing makes the flight experience more enjoyable than grabbing a bite from Fazoli’s,” said President Doug Bostick. “And because PHX has a lot of foot traffic throughout all hours of the day, it made perfect sense to unveil our new breakfast menu at this location.” 

Owned and operated by Kind Hospitality, who is no stranger to operating a variety of restaurant concepts located inside airports, the new Sky Harbor location marks Fazoli’s re-entry into The Grand Canyon State. 

“We’ve long been planning Fazoli’s reintroduction to Arizona and we are so excited that the moment is finally here,” said Kind Hospitality CEO Nava Singam. “Soon, people flying in from all over the world will have a chance to enjoy everything from Pepperoni Pizza to Spicy Baked Ziti with Chicken. And the best thing about this opening is that it is only the beginning for us in the state.” 

Kind Hospitality will also be opening its first street side Fazoli’s at 953 N. Dobson Rd. in Mesa later this year. It will become the second of nine planned locations in Arizona.
