LOS ANGELES, October 13, 2021 / PRNewswire / – As part of its nationwide rollout in 2021, Basil Street announced a partnership with Prepango, an automated retail company specializing in securing contracts for automated retail, food and beverage at airports. With existing operations at several of the country’s largest airports, the partnership marks a poignant milestone for Basil Street as it expands in the aviation and travel industry.
Basil Street is planned to launch an APK in San Antonio International airport in the coming weeks. Subsequently, airports scheduled for launch or under discussion, and where Prepango currently has sales contracts, include Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International airport, Indianapolis International airport and others. These high volume and highly regulated locations are receiving special attention as the APKs of Basil Street are a fully certified hot catering solution, meeting all regulatory requirements of the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) and Underwriters Laboratories (approved by UL and EPA).
Built on the principle of providing contactless and convenient food solutions, Basil Street has primarily focused its Automated Pizza Kitchens (APKs) locations in environments such as universities and manufacturing and corporate headquarters. With the expansion of the country’s airport network, Basil Street will leverage Prepango’s extensive relationships and existing agreements to deploy and operate APKs through a single partner meeting the need for delicious, fast meals for travelers on the go. Prepango’s focus on customer service with the mission of exceeding customer expectations, which aligns with Basil Street key attribute of the brand, further emphasizes the value and mainly the reasoning of the partnership.
âWe’ve all felt the urge for hot, hearty meals while traveling by plane,â said Deglin Kenealy, CEO of Basil Street. âWhether it’s waiting to board a flight, between connections or during overnight stopovers, the food choices are often limited or impractical due to long queues. We are delighted to partner with Prepango, an expert in the field of automated solutions with a strong focus on airports, to help us feed the masses, regardless of the time constraints inherent in travel. Thanks to their expertise, we are proud to have started expanding our portfolio with potentially 200 airport APKs placed over the next 12-18 months.
“Basil Street APKs are a perfect match for other innovative and premium automated retail solutions that we offer to our customers, including illy coffee, Sprinkles Cupcakes, LEGO and KYLIE, and that’s exactly what our customers are looking for, âsaid Marcos Modiano, Founder and CEO of Prepango LLC. “We prefer to partner with companies whose machines are fully certified by (NSF) and (UL) and Basil Street easily meets our customer safety standards for automated pizza. Already, we have seen strong interest from our airport partners in learning about Basil Street APKs to provide a quality dining option for passengers at a time when service and hours of operation fluctuate significantly due to the ongoing labor shortage. “
Keeping quality and convenience as primary values, Basil Street The kiosks offer three 10-inch Italian-style thin crust pizzas: four cheeses, pepperoni and a “Pizza of the Month”, sold between $ 12.95–$ 14.95. All Basil Street pizzas are made with the freshest ingredients, then frozen, to preserve flavor and freshness, before being cooked to order in about three minutes. The cooking process uses their patented three element oven with no microwave speed. The combination of revolutionary oven technology and pizza quality creates a finished product that rivals an elevated pizzeria. Basil Street figured out how to deliver a brick oven pizza experience in a fraction of the time.
