Skagit Landing restaurant opening at airport

 

March 31, 2021



Burlington, WA — The restaurant at Skagit Regional Airport is reopening with new operators, but they are not new to the Skagit Valley. Spinach Bus Ventures, the team who owns Tulip Town, Skagit Acres and the Fairhaven Mill is moving into the restaurant space at The Port of Skagit, bringing their love of the Skagit Valley to the dining table.

The new restaurant, called Skagit Landing, will begin meal service on April 10th with “grab & go” style breakfast and lunch, and work up to full-service dining in the weeks to follow. Chef Josie Urbick, who has worked for Seattle Chef Tom Douglas and most recently at Bon Appetit in the Seattle Art Museum, is excited to join her childhood friends on this new venture and is completing the menu and renovations on the restaurant.

No stranger to the local agricultural industry, this hometown investment group hopes to make Skagit cuisine accessible to everyone.

Andrew Miller, CEO of Spinach Bus Ventures explained that the airport location is ideal because visitors will drive through – or fly over – the beautiful agricultural land to arrive at the restaurant.

They plan to source most of their ingredients from local farms, in order to support the local ag industry and to highlight the exceptionally high-quality products from the valley.

Partnering with The Port of Skagit on this endeavor helped all the pieces fall into place.

“We are so fiercely proud of the Skagit Valley and there’s no bigger champion of value-added agriculture than the Port of Skagit,” Miller stated.

Since 2010, The Port of Skagit has invested substantial resources in infrastructure, research and technology that supports value-added agriculture.

There are currently 18 businesses located on Port property in the value-added agriculture sector.
