HMSHost Corp., the nation's largest operator of airport concessions, is consolidating its financial operations and adding employees, another 50 percent, to its company headquarters.
As part of its new National Processing Center, the Bethesda-based company is adding 150 jobs to compile data from its various business lines. The processing center will streamline the company's accounting functions, which until now were done at its branch offices around the country.
"This is a strategic decision to make our company more efficient," said David Milobsky, HMSHost spokesman.
HMSHost, which has about $1.6 billion in revenue, operates food, beverage and retail concessions in 74 airports worldwide, including Baltimore-Washington International Airport, Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport. Airport concessions make up about 76 percent of HMSHost's business, while travel-plaza and food court operations make up the remainder.
It manages more than 50 well-known brands, including Burger King, Chick-Fil-A, Cinnabon, Krispy Kreme, Pizza Hut and Starbucks.
The new processing center will take up the third floor or 25,000 square feet of the six-floor building at 6600 Rockledge Drive in Bethesda, Mr. Milobsky said.
HMSHost is hiring employees and is looking for people with financial and accounting backgrounds. The new center will be fully staffed within three to four months, Mr. Milobsky said.
