News release

Today, passengers at Kelowna International Airport can access the full White Spot menu, as kitchen renovations are now complete.

As part of these upgrades, brand new, state-of-the-art equipment was installed and the kitchen area was redesigned to improve capacity and speed of service for White Spot customers.

“We’re focused on providing a great customer experience for everyone who comes to YLW,” said Sam Samaddar, Airport Director. “Completion of these renovations, in partnership with Skyway Group, will mean improved food service for approximately 2 million passengers who travel through the Airport annually.”

To maintain food service during construction, White Spot’s Triple O’s On-the-Go food truck provided food and beverage service during construction. The food truck was an innovative way for YLW to maintain food service during construction.

“Over 90 years ago, Nat Bailey served hotdogs and popcorn on B.C.’s first food truck at Lookout Point in Vancouver,” said Warren Erhart, CEO of White Spot. “Today, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to support the Kelowna Airport with our food truck, to offer guests the taste of White Spot while this exciting renovation took place.”

“We now have the most modern kitchen in the White Spot chain, which will enhance our service to the passengers and guests at YLW,” said Ed Wong, Owner, White Spot YLW. “I would like to thank the whole team at the Airport who worked to make the renovation go as smoothly as possible. It has truly been a team achievement.”

We want to thank passengers for their patience while we worked to improve food service at White Spot.
