White Spot on Wheels at YLW

News release

The Kelowna International Airport (YLW) is renovating the White Spot kitchen from April 3 to June 27.

“The state-of-the-art kitchen renovations at White Spot will greatly improve capacity and speed of service,” said Sam Samaddar, Airport Director. “This renovation is part of a partnership with Skyway Group to improve service delivery to our customers.”

During the renovations, a Triple O’s food truck, donated by the White Spot Restaurant Company based in Vancouver, will be on site serving a limited hot food menu.

“This was a novel solution to continue providing food service to our valued guests,” said Warren Erhart, CEO of White Spot. “With the Triple O’s food truck, both White Spot locations in departures and pre-security will still be able to have food served by our friendly staff. After all, no one wants to sit through a flight next to someone who’s hungry.”

As an extra incentive to visit the airport on Thursday, April 5 $2 from every burger sold will be donated to the Canucks Autism Network - an organization dedicated to providing year round recreation programs for children and families living with autism, while increasing autism awareness across British Columbia and giving children the gift of flight.

“We’re delighted that White Spot is able to continue food services at the airport with no impact to our guests or the White Spot staff,” said David Mah, owner of Skyway Group. “The food truck is a first for YLW and demonstrates an innovative approach in providing food and beverage services during construction at the airport.”

The renovations will not impact service at Subway or Tim Horton’s locations at YLW.
