Chickie’s & Pete’s and Roster Named PHL’s
Restaurant and Retailer of the First Quarter 2013-2014

PHILADELPHIA — Oct. 14, 2013 — The Philadelphia Marketplace Food & Shops at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) announced Chickie’s & Pete’s, Terminal A West, and Roster, B/C Connector, as its Restaurant and Retailer of the Quarter, respectively, for Q1 2013-2014.

The Philadelphia Marketplace’s Cutting EDGE! Program (Excellence Drives Great Experiences) was designed to motivate and reward merchants. Each merchant can earn EDGE! points through great customer service and participation in marketing programs. At the end of each quarter, the food and retail merchants with the most points are named “Merchant of the Quarter.”

Chickie’s & Pete’s is a Philadelphia favorite, serving its renowned crab fries and signature seafood dishes. It was named the number one sports bar in America by ESPN and offers additional locations at PHL in Concourses C, D and E.

Roster brings out the fan in everyone—whether you’re just visiting or a Philly native. Carrying the latest selection of hometown team apparel and gifts, Roster puts the ballpark, stadium, arena and rink together all in one store. Roster has the fashion, fabric and fit to meet the needs of the most passionate fans.

“As past Merchant of the Quarter winners, both Chickie’s & Pete’s and Roster have demonstrated their ongoing commitment to customer service,” said Anna DiGregorio, director of marketing for the Philadelphia Marketplace Food & Shops. “Congratulations to everyone at both locations and thank you for your continued hard work.”
