Parksville looks for mobile food vendors

Focus on locally grown and nutritious foods

The City of Parksville is seeking request for proposals (RFP) for mobile food vendors in the community park.

The city wishes to provide concession services, with a focus on locally grown and nutritious foods.

Two concession pads are located in the park and applicants may submit proposals for one or both.

If an applicant wishes to occupy both pads, separate proposals must be submitted for each. If multiple proposals are submitted, each proposal must reference the appropriate pad number as shown on the RFP documents available at city hall or on the city’s website.

The successful contractors would operate mobile food concessions for the 2019 summer seasons from May 1 through Sept. 30; some flexibility may be considered for the month of September.

The term of the contract will be for one year with an option to renew for an additional year at the city’s sole discretion.

The closing date for the return of RFPs is Friday, March 15 at 4 p.m. to the administration department, City of Parksville, 100 Jensen Avenue East, PO Box 1390, Parksville, V9P 2H3.

For more information please contact Amanda Weeks, deputy corporate officer at 250-954-3070,
