Marshall Retail Group Partners With MEEL in Its Debut at Nashville International Airport

May 16, 2022

Marshall Retail Group, a WH Smith Company and specialty retailer in the airport marketplace, is pleased to announce it has partnered with MEEL, the Nashville-based meal kit service, to open its first brick and mortar store in Nashville International Airport (BNA). MEEL is now open inside Concourse C of the airport.

Well-known in Nashville for its sustainable, locally sourced meal kits, MEEL offers fresh, “farm-to-flight” grab and go eats featuring seasonal, organic, biodynamic, and non-GMO ingredients that are nutrient dense and grown and raised in the local Tennessee community.

MEEL’s seasonal offerings include a trifle jar featuring locally grown, fresh organic strawberries from Delvin Farms in addition to wholesome foods to fuel every family’s adventure. Kids can indulge in organic pudding along with an assortment of nutritious, kid-approved snacks. Guests arriving early to the airport can sit down to enjoy a healthy breakfast or lunch and grab a biodegradable cup at the Wellness Bar for a turmeric latte, bone broth, or Sri Lankan milk tea. The travel experience starts at the airport, and MEEL is a resource for travelers of all ages.

“We’re so excited to be partnering with Marti to bring MEEL to Nashville International Airport,” said Toby Keir, CEO of Marshall Retail Group. “As travelers continue to prioritize their health and wellness, MEEL’s sustainably sourced, organic offerings allow them to enjoy healthy, satiating items without compromising taste or convenience.”

“I’ve been traveling through BNA since childhood, so I am thrilled to bring such an amazing selection of local, regional, and sustainable foods to my home airport, said MEEL Founder Marti Emch. “One component that’s often missing with airport dining is feeling well nourished, and at MEEL, our goal is to nourish you!”

MEEL is now open daily from 6:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
