WHO WE ARE:  “Every team member, every day” – “Every guest, every time” These are not only our core values, but actually our way of life. Our team is comprised of individuals who have a passion to create memorable experiences and who are intentional in every guest interaction and every meal served. Our team members are passionate about being ambassadors to the local food scene for each & every traveler passing through  their city. We are unwavering in our commitment to preparing freshly made food and drinks, inspired by using the best local brands and ingredients. Tastes on the Fly upholds the integrity of each of our brand partners, replicating down to the slightest details, what has made them so admired in their own community.
OUR MISSION: We align with the community’s top chefs, beloved local food brands and restaurant teams committed to being part of something unique in order to bring a taste of the authentic local dining scene to an airport.
HISTORY: When four restaurant entrepreneurs started Tastes on the Fly in 1999, they had a singular focus; bring travelers a high quality taste of place  by executing with the same passion as the original restaurant locations  from the community. Since its inaugural opening at San Francisco International Airport in 2000, Tastes on the Fly has grown into one of the largest boutique airport dining operators. The company prides itself on delivering on its promise to bring top tier food and beverage options to passengers in some of the busiest airports in North America.
DIVERSITY, EQUITY, & INCLUSION: We have a passion about what we do and our team members reflect that in  all ways. We intentionally create a work environment that fosters learning and growth.
