SAN ANTONIO (March 21, 2019) – Today, District 1 City Councilman Roberto Treviño made a motion to approve the Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement with Paradies Lagardère at the San Antonio International Airport provided that it exclude the Chick-Fil-A concept. The amendment was approved by a vote of 6-4. Councilman Treviño provided the following statement:
“With this decision, the City Council reaffirmed the work our city has done to become a champion of equality and inclusion. San Antonio is a city full of compassion, and we do not have room in our public facilities for a business with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.
Everyone has a place here, and everyone should feel welcome when they walk through our airport. I look forward to the announcement of a suitable replacement by Paradies.”
