HMSHost in The Netherlands

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is one of Europe’s leading aviation gateways, welcoming over 60 million travellers annually. HMSHost operates more than 70 F&B venues at Schiphol, including award-winning concepts like Dutch Kitchen & Bar, Café Chocolat and Bubbles Seafood & Wine Bar. The outlets range from self-service and counter service to full-service restaurants, several of which are open 24 hours, 365 days a year. Together, with more than 2,000 enthusiastic colleagues, HMSHost provides travellers at Schiphol Airport with an excellent product, in a hospitable and guest-friendly environment. Regardless of which location they visit at Schiphol, we give them a culinary experience where freshly prepared meals using local ingredients, personal service and sustainability are core. The Dutch Kitchen, serving typical Dutch dishes such as poffertjes (mini pancakes) and kibbeling (fried cod) or our Café Chocolat, filled with a large variety of delicious chocolate, are just two examples.

At the end of 2015, HMSHost International opened three brand-new F&B concepts on the first floor of Utrecht Central Station in the Netherlands; ‘t Koffiehuis, Bar Centraal, and Bistrot Utrecht Centraal. With space for 400-500 seats and a pleasant atmosphere, the first floor of the Utrecht Central station, in the heart of the city, has been transformed into a meeting place for business men and women, travellers, students and locals. Additionally, HMSHost operates all the Burger King and La Place outlets at railway stations in the Netherlands.
