HMSHost in Russia
Recently, HMSHost entered in Russia, one of the most promising emerging countries. Together with our local partners – the Novikov Group and Ginza Project – we are very excited about bringing the expertise of the world’s leading F&B operator to the country. It’s anticipated that by 2020, Pulkovo Airport in St. Petersburg will grow into the largest airport in the Baltic region, serving an estimated 17 million passengers annually – and becoming one of Europe’s leading international airports. HMSHost is delighted to provide travellers with a flavourful variety of food service facilities that gives them an experience that is both authentic and delicious. At Pulkovo Airport, HMSHost operates Kamchatka, developed by Russia’s highly-acclaimed chef, Arkadi Novikov; Ice Bar, inspired by the lounge atmosphere and vibe of the great metropolitan bars; Puro Gusto, offering the finest Italian coffee; and leading international brands such as Starbucks and O’Reilly’s Irish Pub.
