Local Food Vendor Needed to Provide Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
The Downtown Austin Alliance is seeking an established restaurant operator to be part of the transformation of Republic Square by offering daily breakfast, lunch and dinner when the park reopens after renovations in Fall 2017. Republic Square, which is one of downtown Austin’s three historic squares, is currently undergoing a renovation through a partnership between the Downtown Austin Alliance, Austin Parks Foundation, and City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department. Once complete, the park will be transformed into a community gathering space, which will continue to host the SFC Farmers Market and seasonal film screenings, among other events, to increase the daily use of the park. A counter-service restaurant will also be included in the refurbished park when it reopens.
"The Downtown Austin Alliance, Austin Parks Foundation, and City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department are excited to revitalize Republic Square and bring it back to its glory as a cherished communal place in the heart of our city," Dewitt Peart, president and CEO of the Downtown Alliance, said. "The community’s vision and subsequent master plan called for daily activation of the park, including the need for a food vendor, so we are thrilled to have the chance to provide park users with what Austin is known for—amazing food and beautiful green spaces."
The Downtown Alliance has contracted with CBRE to manage the food vendor solicitation and selection process. All responses are due to CBRE by Feb 10, 2017.
