South Florida’s Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport has good news for hungry travelers. Kosher food is now available to passengers at JetBlue’s Terminal 3, Concourse F. Chef Allen’s 2 Go Kosher refrigerated kiosk opened on September 30. It is a welcomed accommodation to the many kosher consumers who stream through the busy airport.
Allen Susser, owner of Chef Allen’s 2 Go, was approached by Jean-Pierre Turgot, general manager of food and beverage for the airport. Turgot had received many requests for kosher food and asked Susser, an established food provider, if he was interested in creating a line of kosher meals and snacks. Susser contacted an expert in the field of kosher food and catering, Yossie (Joseph) Gopin of the popular Kosher Central Market in Hollywood. The idea was set in motion.
Everything in Chef Allen’s 2 Go Kosher line comes individually wrapped, sealed and under the strict supervision of the ORB (Orthodox Rabbinic Board). Sandwiches include tuna and lettuce on whole-wheat baguette, oven roasted turkey with dill dressing on challah rolls, and oven roasted turkey with Israeli cucumbers on toasted whole wheat bread. Salads are tasty and fresh. Both chicken Caesar and Greek salads are available. Muffins include selections of banana walnut, blueberry, chocolate chip, corn and apple.
The enterprise has met with success and Gopin says he has high hopes of expanding the business.
