About Fly with Breeze Inc. (Breeze)
Breeze is an on-demand food service on a mission to provide all airport travelers convenient access to delicious, feel-good food.
After years of frequent flying with Celiac’s disease, founder Annabel Lawee turned a personal struggle into an opportunity to alleviate one of travelers’ biggest pain points — seamlessly finding healthy food in the airport.
Every Breeze meal is made from scratch with high-quality ingredients. The menu — featuring crave-worthy meals, snacks, and beverages — accommodates a variety of dietary preferences and restrictions including gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, and paleo. Customers order directly from the Breeze app, select a pick-up time (up to 24 hours ahead), and grab their order at the Breeze cart post-security.
Breeze launched December 2019 in LAX Terminal 2, marking the first stop on the company’s journey to elevate the airport food experience.
