It’s All About Experience

We take care of ideating, sourcing and pricing a fit for your business and location.

As air travel continues to see record growth, more and more airports are positioning themselves as destination locations that bring in the flair of their city’s culture which poses a different set of challenges for developers and concessionaires. 

More About The Founder

Anita Leopold is one of eight children from a family of Italian immigrants and the proud mother of two sons. Before Anita embarked on her adventures as an entrepreneur, she was responsible for managing the Macy’s-Egleston Christmas Parade as well as children’s events throughout the country. She then began working in advertising, selling ads for the Atlanta Stadium Authority at the Fulton County Stadium. Anita was able to increase advertising sales from $200,000 to $3M in just two years.


She gained airport concessions expertise from her decades working as a part-owner of Business Traveler Services, Inc. (BTS), where she was responsible for managing retail from the ground up – everything from the initial design and construction to the day-to-day operations to concept development. In 1997, she founded Flying Leap, Inc. She gained credentials as a minority airport concessionaire, airport consultant, and airport employee uniform company. Today, Flying Leap is ACDBE certified in 36 states plus Washington, D.C..


When not busy managing her company, Anita served as a board member for youthSpark, an organization created to bring awareness to the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children. She also volunteers at the Atlanta International School as Chairperson for the school’s annual Worldfest event and Spring benefit and has raised nearly $650,000 for the school.

What Are You Doing To Increase Your Exposure?


We have had a business relationship with Anita Leopold spanning 11 years and with Flying Leap, Inc. who became one of our development consultants in May of 2019. They have provided us with a strategy for impactful presentations and many introductions to airport and master concessionaire decision-makers. This has resulted in a new operating location at the Nashville International Airport, a lease signed with the San Francisco International Airport, and several more opportunities in the pipeline. I would highly recommend their services, especially to new airport concepts or those existing concepts looking to grow their airport presence.

We have been working with Anita Leopold and her team at Flying Leap for about 3 years. What a find! She is pleasant to work with, spot on in uniform selections and always full of creative ideas.

I had been on the hunt for a particular pen for over a year and could only find companies who had them for over 3x the original price that I had paid. Anita was able to not only get me the pens for what I had originally paid but the process was seamless and I received them very quickly. Anita is professional, personable, and makes finding what you need, painless! I highly recommend her!
