ATLANTA (AP) – The city of Atlanta is taking another shot at a massive overhaul of concessions operations at the world’s busiest airport.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that millions of dollars in food, beverage and merchandise are at stake in the massive revamp of concessions at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

City officials are set to start considering names of potential vendors on Wednesday. The first round of proposals was rejected in September after Atlanta officials said too many lacked required documentation to back up their bids.

A decision could impact outlets at more than 125 locations throughout the sprawling airport and the jobs of some 1,500 existing workers. It also includes concessions for the airport’s new international terminal, which is set to open next year.
