SB&J concessions include franchises, such as Wendy’s, KFC and Noble Roman’s. The food & beverage portfolio also includes two (2) proprietary brands – Uptown Bar & Lounge and Phipps Kitchen. In addition to food & beverage, SB&J has expanded its business to include gift & news, as well as specialty – all within the airport.

With its corporate headquarters located in Charlotte’s historic South End neighborhood – just minutes from the airport – SB&J has very literally watched CDIA become one of the most distinguished airports in the world (2010 International Airport Transportation Award, “Best Airport”) and one of the busiest airports in this country.


It is an essential part of business that the owners continue the legacy of serving the communities surrounding them. We encourage our employees to actively participate in Foundation sponsored events, as well as any service organizations on their own.
