With a keen focus on innovation, PEI prides itself on offering groundbreaking and exciting concepts to fulfill travelers’ needs and unmet desires in the airport retail and food & beverage space.

PEI’s creative journey is rich: from opening the world’s first airport winery to creating the first chef-driven airport restaurants at DFW and Love Field airports as well as one of the first concessionaires to offer healthy-food options and craft cocktails to the traveling public.


For over 35 years, Puente Enterprises Inc. has carved a niche in the highly competitive airport concessions industry as a woman and minority-owned company.

Founder Gina Puente credits her success to PEI’s diversity, not only in brand and category selections but through inclusive hiring of the best people from the DFW area.
