South Dakota-based family-owned company Sky Dine is introducing a new menu featuring locally sourced ingredients.

The new and revised menu will be posted on the Rapid City Airport website. Locals and travelers can follow the Rapid City Regional Airport Facebook page for updates on new dining options and grand opening announcements.

Sky Dine also brings Cinnabon, the national chain of ‘World’s Best Cinnamon Rolls’, to the Black Hills. A bakery has been added to the Rapid City Regional Airport, offering Cinnabon rolls in pre-security and post-security locations.

“I hope the delicious smell of cinnamon rolls makes them feel at home when people come to the airport,” Johnson said. “We can’t wait!” …I think our guests will really love the new options. “

To accompany a Cinnabon Roll or to get the caffeine needed for an early flight, travelers can grab a cup of coffee served by Mountain Mudd Espresso. Mountain Mudd Espresso is an artisanal brewery that makes coffee from small batch roasted beans in Kalispell, Mont. The woman-owned company has locations in Montana and Rapid City.

Rapid City Regional Airport’s restaurant and bar, Flight Line Grill and Tap, is located in two locations on the second floor of the terminal building. One before security and one after security. Johnson said some construction is taking place to prepare Skydyne to take over the concession.

“We will provide full (dining) service throughout the transition period,” Johnson said.

Sky Dine has also taken over Grab n’ Go Express and vending machine services, giving travelers new options such as freshly baked sandwiches, Johnson said.

Sky Dine owner Dustin Sejnoha said in a press release: “The city and airport are investing heavily in new terminal expansions and we are thrilled to be a part of all the excitement.
