Trust for Governors Island Seeks Proposals for Seasonal Pop Up Cafés for the 2017 Season


The Trust for Governors Island issued today a Request for Proposals for Seasonal Pop Up Café concepts on Governors Island. The Trust is seeking high quality and creative proposals for alcohol and food service from operators with a proven track record in the food and beverage industry, excellent customer service and a keen interest in improving the visitor experience on Governors Island. Two exclusive sites in Liggett Terrace, the Island’s most highly trafficked area, will be offered to vendors proposing beer garden or wine bar style concepts for the 2017 season.

As Governors Island continues to grow in popularity during the summer months, so does the need to feed our visitors! The Trust hopes to expand and diversify its offerings for food and beverage and complement existing mobile food vendors with a beer garden or seated wine bar through vendors who share the spirit of the Island. Respondents may submit proposals for the operation of one or both locations offered through this RFP, and must include food service in addition to beverage.
