HMSHost Offers Healthy Options At Airports and Roadside Travel Plazas

HMSHost knows travelers often have to forego healthy diets based on limited healthy options while on the road.

Their new initiative, “Eat Well. Travel Further.” targets this need and provides healthy snack options.  

“Travelers don’t have to sacrifice their mindful dining choices. Whether they follow a plant-based or protein-rich diet, our Eat Well. Travel Further. offerings are themed around current lifestyle eating habits to give health-conscious travelers new ways to fuel their journeys,” said HMSHost Vice President of Marketing & Communications Atousa Ghoreichi. “We are advancing our commitment to the wellness culinary ethos, appealing to the growing need for more, easily accessible health-forward options in travel venues.”

The company has made a promise to its customers to offer 3 things.

Servings with 500 calories or less in nutrient-dense foods.

Clean eating options with no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners.

Healthy foods that do not include hydrogenated fats or high fructose corn syrup.  

HMSHost piloted the program in the summer of 2017 and saw demand for healthy options.  In May of 2018, the company rolled out the initiative to the following locations:
