About Mission Yogurt, Inc.
Denver-based Mission Yogurt, Inc. and its subsidiary companies own and operate food and beverage concepts primarily in high traffic airports. Mission Yogurt, Inc. specializes in full-service dining and bars, fast food and fast-casual dining. With a focus on high-quality food sourcing and environmental sustainability, Mission’s restaurant concepts offer travelers fresh and unique dining experiences in an appealing environment. Each concept uses the best quality products and local ingredients whenever possible. Mission Yogurt, Inc. continues to grow, owning and operating restaurants at Denver International Airport, San Jose International Airport and San Diego International Airport.

At the helm, Rod Tafoya has nearly 30 years of experience in the restaurant business, including more than 25 leading Mission Yogurt, Inc., now a leading concessionaire and franchisee at Denver International Airport. Mission purchased the building that Que Bueno Suerte! now calls home, which formerly housed Session Kitchen, late last year after learning the Westminster Promenade, home to its 11-year-old restaurant, Que Bueno!, would be demolished in May 2016.

“Qué buena suerte’ means ‘what good luck,’ or ‘what good fortune,’ in Spanish, and we felt the term couldn’t be more appropriate for our newest concept,” says Tafoya. “Everything begins and ends at the right time – the closing of another restaurant, due to new construction, presented the perfect opportunity to pursue this new adventure. A portion of the new restaurant’s name – Que Bueno – pays tribute to the past, and the rest celebrates the success we see for the future.”
