The City of Parksville is seeing requests for proposals for community park food vendors.
In a release, the city said it wishes to provide concession services through mobile vendors in the Parksville Community Park “with a focus on locally grown and nutritious foods.”
Two concession pads are located in the park at 193 Island Highway East and applicants may submit proposals for one or both of the existing pads for either the summer season or off-season.
If an applicant wishes to occupy both pads, separate proposals must be submitted for each pad. If multiple proposals are submitted, each proposal must reference the appropriate pad number as shown on the RFP documents available from city hall or on the city’s website.
For the summer season, the successful contractors would operate mobile food concessions from May 1 through Sept. 30; some flexibility may be considered for the months of May and September. The term of the contract is one year with an option to renew at the city’s direction for an additional year. For the off-season, the successful contractors would operate the mobile food concessions from Oct. 1, 2021 to April 30, 2022.
The closing date for the return of the RFP is Friday, Feb. 26 at 3 p.m. to the Administration Department, City of Parksville, 100 Jensen Avenue East, PO Box 1390, Parksville, V9P 2H3. Additional information and a copy of the RFP documents may be viewed on the city’s website. Questions about the RFP should be directed to Amanda Weeks, corporate officer; email@example.com or 250-954-3070.
