Stack & Still to land at Glasgow Airport

Date Posted: 21 Feb, 2023

Stack & Still, the UK’s largest chain of pancake houses, is gearing up for take-off at Glasgow Airport this spring as it prepares to launch its first partnership with a travel operator.

The Glasgow-headquartered company, which serves in excess of a million pancakes per annum, will open its latest venture airside at Glasgow Airport in May, creating ten new jobs.

Stack & Still will create a new and exciting boutique concept in the heart of the airport’s departure area. The concept takes the best of Stack & Still’s pancake offering and will introduce bespoke packaging for people to eat at the dedicated seating area or grab and go for an onward flight. This offering will mirror their highly successful operation at Edinburgh’s Bonnie & Wild Scottish Marketplace in the St James Quarter.

The firm’s ninth and newest branch follows the chain’s successful expansion south of the border after its 225-seater restaurant just off London’s Leicester Square opened just in time for Christmas 2022.

Stack & Still was launched in 2018 by founders Paul Reynolds and Graham Swankie. The firm already employs over 150 people at its eight locations – including four in Glasgow – and aims to double in size during the next two years, including more locations in London.

Paul Reynolds, co-founder and chief executive at Stack & Still, said: “It’s very exciting to be adding something so unique to Glasgow Airport’s airside food and drink offer. This will be our first travel operator partnership and we’re actively exploring more opportunities across the UK as part of our expansion plans.

“Given such a wide range of flight times, our Glasgow Airport branch will introduce travellers to the delights of pancakes from 4am right through to the evening, setting them up perfectly for their onward journey.

“Hungry pre-flyers can choose from more than 12 million combinations thanks to our exhaustive selection of pancake bases, toppings, sauces, and other accompaniments.”

Craig Norton, retail account manager at Glasgow Airport, said: “We are really pleased to be the first UK airport to welcome Stack & Still, particularly given as the popularity of these pancake pioneers continues to soar.

“It is also fitting that Glasgow is Stack & Still’s first airport-based pancake house to open given the brand’s links with the city.

“I’m sure the addition of this latest food and drink offering at the airport will be a huge hit with our passengers.”

Stack & Still’s existing Scottish sites are at: West George Street in Glasgow; Braehead Shopping Centre, Glasgow Fort, and Silverburn Shopping Centre; The Centre in Livingston; the Bonnie & Wild Scottish Marketplace in Edinburgh’s £1 billion St James Quarter; and the historic Georgian Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh’s George Street.
