Concessions Management

The travel food and beverage industry caught founder Jason Yoo’s attention in 2005 while studying the concession management operations at George Bush Intercontinental Airport. An opportunity to acquire the remaining 2 ½ years of an existing concessions contract in Terminal C was all that was needed to jump start his firm into this ever growing sector. A quick study, JDDA learned how to balance space constraints, logistical needs, a 24/7 demanding marketplace within a challenging customer service environment. The firm’s return on investment was confirmed within its first operating season as sales increased a remarkable 17% year to year.

Today, JDDA Concession Management continues its ambitious plans to develop into one of the region’s leading resources in food travel operations and management. Its Bush Intercontinental Airport operations has recently been awarded an extension on the 20,000+ square feet under management establishing it as one of the two major concessionaires at the airport. Over the ensuing year JDDA will supervise a $15 million dollar remodeling and renovation budget destined to make Houston’s facility one of the best in the nation.

As a minority owned business, JDDA recognizes the value of diversity and currently leases many of its locations to resident minority operators. Current and future operations include The Palm, El Pinto, Panda Express, Wendy’s, Jamba Juice, Le Grand Comptoir, Panapolis, Einstein’s Bagle, Starbucks and many other local and national brands.
