AUSTIN, TX – Briggo has opened a new robotic Coffee Haus location at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport adjacent to Gate 8. The new Coffee Haus will open for the first flight of the day on July 17 to begin serving travelers, airline crews and airport employees with locally roasted, gourmet coffee 24/7.

To celebrate the grand opening, Austin-based Briggo has teamed up with Lyft rideshare service. Starting opening day through Labor Day, any customer who purchases a Briggo beverage from the new location will be immediately eligible for a 15% discount on their next Lyft ride to or from Austin-Bergstrom (limit one per customer).

According to Briggo, the new location will mark the first app-based, robotic, specialty coffee system installed in an airport anywhere in the world. ABIA had a record 13.89 million passengers in 2017, and a 14% increase in traffic so far in 2018 at the Barbara Jordan Terminal.

“We are excited to partner with Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and Delaware North to bring connected coffee to the Austin community and its visitors,”  said Briggo chief executive Kevin Nater. “Just imagine the power and efficiency of customizing and ordering your coffee via the app as you make your way through security, then swinging by Briggo on the way to your gate without missing a beat. No more guesswork, no more long lines.”

The new ABIA location marks Briggo’s sixth across the Austin market. Briggo currently operates inside three global tech firms, including two Coffee Hauses stationed in separate buildings at Dell’s Round Rock, TX, headquarters. The company plans to launch a network of Coffee Hauses in universities, airports, hospitals, office buildings, malls and hotels across Texas before expanding into other major U.S. markets.
