Global restaurateur HMSHost is going “cage-free” in its airport and motorway restaurants. As part of its ongoing commitment to strong corporate citizenship and placing emphasis on thoughtful environmental and animal welfare practices, HMSHost will move toward cage-free eggs at its more than 2,000 locations in airports and motorways across the U.S. by 2025. HMSHost will launch this initiative by switching to all cage-free eggs by early summer at several of its restaurants at Los Angeles International Airport, Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Chicago O’Hare International Airport, and McCarran International Airport Las Vegas.
“HMSHost is regularly identifying ways to ensure we’re acting in a socially responsible way: safe, responsibly sourced food; sustainability practices in our restaurant designs and operations; and other initiatives that speak to our values as an organization,” says Steve Johnson, HMSHost president and CEO. “Our decision to source only cage-free eggs reflects the focus we place on food quality and our commitment to exceed the traveler’s expectations.”
This June, travelers can expect to find cage-free eggs being served at HMSHost operated restaurants including Tuscany Café, Goose Island, and Tortas Frontera (already serving cage-free eggs) at Chicago O’Hare International Airport; Gladstones and Campanile at Los Angeles International Airport; HMSHost’s exclusive restaurant 1897 Market at Charlotte Douglas International Airport; and PGA TOUR Grill, and Sammy’s Beach Bar & Grill at McCarran International Airport Las Vegas.
