The Paradies Shops operates more than 550 stores in over 75 airports and hotels across the United States and Canada, serving more than a half-billion customers each year. These stores include original, one-of-a-kind brands unique to individual airports, as well as national brands.
Outside of airports, The Paradies Shops operates retail locations at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center (Orlando, Florida) and the Hilton Americas Hotel (Houston, Texas).
With roots tracing back to 1960, Paradies is a true pioneer in airport concessions. We were the driving force that moved the industry toward emphasizing value (through the Request for Proposal “RFP” process) over price (bid).
Diversity and minority representation is important to us. More than half (55 percent) of our over 3,900-member employee family is comprised of people of color, and our company-wide DBE participation rate is 23 percent.
The Paradies Shops is the most recognized and acclaimed airport concessionaire. Airport Revenue News (ARN), the industry’s leading publication, has named us the nation’s “Best Airport Retailer” for 18 consecutive years; no other airport retailer has won this award. Additionally, ARN has named us as “Best News & Gift Operator” and “Concessionaire With The Highest Regards for Customer Service." The Paradies Shops has also captured scores of other industry honors, including ARN’s “Best Airport Retail Store Design”, Georgia Trend Magazine’s “Family Business of the Year”, and has been recognized by the Atlanta Business Chronicle as an A+ Employer.
Our company culture and values distinguish us in the marketplace. We treat our team members, customers and business partners as members of our family, and we pride ourselves on finding ways to exceed expectations on all fronts.
