New operators for food services coming to Orchard Beach

Orchard Beach needs a new vendor for food services.
The Bronx Riviera is in need of food.

The city's Department of Parks & Recreation announces that a Request for Proposals (“RFP”) has been issued for the renovation, operation and maintenance of three snack bars and the operation of up to 20 mobile food units at Orchard Beach.

“For more than 75 years, Orchard Beach has served as the Riviera of the Bronx, delighting New Yorkers with its 1.1 mile sandy beach and promenade,” said Parks & Recreation Commissioner Adrian Benepe. “No trip to the beach is complete without delicious food and we are hoping to find high quality, interesting food offerings for the beach’s snack bars and carts.”

The deadline for RFP submissions is Tuesday, Dec. 20, 2011 at 3 p.m.

The contract expired at the end of the 2011 summer season for the previous company that ran food services.
