NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — More food options are coming to the Nashville International Airport.

A new concessions program will be opening by the spring in the Concourse C food court. Diverse, locally-owned restaurants are set to move in, including Bajo Sexto and Peg Leg Porker.

Visitors will be able to pay regular prices, without any of those airport up charges. Officials are calling it a win-win.

"We wanted to go back to normal street pricing so passengers aren't deciding to eat or shop before going to the airport. They can buy it at the same price once they're at the airport. We think that'll be a big advantage to us." said Doug Kreulen, president and CEO of Metro Nashville Airport Authority.

Future developments at the airport include new food courts, live performance space and other places to shop. The full project is expected to finish by 2023.
