Danbury has opened the bid process for the concession area at the Library and Innovation Center. People interested in leasing the concession area for a cafe-type business have until March 17th to submit bids to Danbury. The space is a little less than 640 square feet.
Danbury is looking for a vendor to offer a menu that is reasonably priced and competitive in the downtown environment, and have at least the same hours as the library. There is no grill in the space, so only food requiring warming or cooling such as salads, sandwiches and soups best suit the facility.
Packets should include a rental proposal for the price and length of the contract, a business plan with implementation time-line and business background about the principals involved.
The cafe operator would be responsible for providing furnishings and related equipment as well as custodial and refuse services. A dishwasher, tables and chairs as well as plumbing and electrical infrastructure are already in place.
Utilities such as water, sewer, electric and heat will be the responsibility of the City.
Interested parties are requested to submit five copies of their proposals, including qualification data, to the Office of the Purchasing Agent, 155 Deer Hill Avenue, Danbury, CT 06810, during normal business hours by no later than 2:00 PM on Thursday, March 17, 2016.
Envelopes should be marked: Bid #02-15-16-02 “Café Operator @ Danbury Public Library”.
