City of Phoenix Aviation Department Providing Free Retail Business Opportunities Workshop Series

Sauce We loved it when Phoenix Sky Harbor went local with their restaurants, and now they are seeking to include more local retail options!

In an effort to expand economic opportunities and create jobs, a series of free business workshops have been developed to provide information to businesses interested in retail contracting opportunities at the Phoenix (PHX) Sky Harbor International Airport's Terminal 4 (T4) which is home to 80% of Phoenix's traveling public. The workshops will provide information about the T4 Retail program, address unique opportunities for small businesses, and afford extensive networking opportunities for attendees. Delivered by City of Phoenix staff, these workshops are open to any firm interested pursuing retail and goods and services opportunities on the PHX Terminal 4 Retail Concessions Program.

We applaud the City of Phoenix's efforts to include more independent retail options at Phoenix Sky Harbor! Please see below for further information on the workshop:
