Prospect Park Alliance Invites Local Businesses to Submit Proposals for New Food and Drink Options in Brooklyn’s Backyard

Prospect Park Alliance, the non-profit organization that sustains Prospect Park, has issued a Request for Proposals to expand food and drink offerings via mobile carts operated by local vendors. This will enhance current food and drink offerings in the park, which include King David Tacos and concessions at the LeFrak Center for Lakeside, and, in season, the Prospect Park Carousel and Parade Ground. 

Prospect Park Alliance is seeking vendors that have the experience and skills necessary to operate quality food services at reasonable prices and enhance the experience of park users. The Alliance is seeking vendors who can offer interesting, affordable and healthy food to complement the experience of park users.

With more than 10 million visits annually, Prospect Park is Brooklyn’s Backyard, and Prospect Park Alliance serves the diverse communities that call Brooklyn home, as well as visitors to the city. Locations for the mobile food carts include 9th St and Prospect Park West, Flatbush Ave and Plaza Street, Dog Beach, the Long Meadow Ball Fields at 10th Avenue, and the Vanderbilt Playground Loop in Prospect Park. 

Interested businesses can attend a pre-proposal meeting at the Prospect Park Picnic House on Monday, February 4, at 12 pm, and the Alliance recommends that those planning to respond to the RFP make every effort to attend this recommended meeting. All proposals submitted in response to this RFP must be sent in no later than Monday, March 4, 2019.
