Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport: Fraport
Travelers at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport will discover offerings from the Maryland and D.C. region at five new retail shops. The new local operators are participants in the 2022 Launch Pad program. In its fifth year, small, local and minority businesses have greater opportunities to start an airport retail enterprise through this innovative program.
The openings follow a rigorous recruitment and selection process, in-depth training and certification, and onboarding over the past few months. Fraport Maryland enhanced the program for 2022, bringing additional resources, training, mentoring, and ongoing business development, sales, and marketing support with area business partners. Phinesse speaks with the principal director and one of the participants of FRAPORT.
