What: Rye Town Park Issues RFP for Restaurant and Concessions
Who: JGL Food Service Consultants For Rye Town Park Commission
Timeline: Bids Due August 28;
Contract Award Scheduled for late October
Contract Term Range from 10 to 20 years
The Rye Town Park Commission (RTPC), has issued a Request For Proposals (RFP) to operate the park’s on-site restaurant, beachside snack bar and concession stand located at the north gate of the beach.
RTPC’s primary interest is in developing a relationship with a party that can develop food and beverage offerings that complement and enhance the overall guest experience at the Park, and help update and maintain the restaurant facilities throughout the life of the license.
People may recall the Commission ran a highly successful RFP process one year ago to secure a short-term licensee for the summer of 2017. This resulted in an agreement with the current Ocean Grille which began operating the park restaurant this past spring. A Nathan’s franchise is currently installed in the snack bar and North Gate concession. This new RFP process will establish a food and beverage provider with license to operate the park’s facilities for a contract term of 10 to 20 years.
Rye Town Park is a 62-acre greenspace and beachfront, with seasonal swimming and year-round use for passive and semi-active events. The park has been operating since 1909.
For further information or to receive a copy of the RFP, contact Ms. Lawler at the phone number or email address listed above or Debbie Reisner, Secretary to the Rye Town Park Commission.
