“YVR is elevating its offerings to become the destination of food and shopping for travellers,” said Robyn McVicker, Vice President, Passenger Journey at Vancouver Airport Authority. “The Dirty Apron is a natural fit and the perfect addition to YVR’s food and beverage offerings. Travellers looking for a delicious yet quick bite on the go can experience The Dirty Apron’s signature gourmet sandwiches, salads and countless artisan snacks and treats – all meticulously created with the freshest local ingredients the region has to offer. Chef David Robertson and The Dirty Apron are synonymous with teaching Vancouverites how to appreciate and cook great food and we are thrilled to now showcase them at YVR”

The restaurant is operated by SSP Canada, a division of SSP Group, a leading operator of food and beverage concessions in travel locations worldwide.

With The Dirty Apron’s official opening in the Domestic C Pier July 26, travellers will be able to visit the new offering during its daily operating hours between 6:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

“For the last 13 years, we have worked really hard to make The Dirty Apron a local household name where customers know that they will enjoy delicious and local food,” said David Robertson, Chef and Owner of The Dirty Apron. “When we were approached with the opportunity to open our delicatessen at YVR, we realized quickly how amazing of a fit our fare would be for travellers.
