It is envisaged that the unit would operate 7 days per week on a year round basis and provide a hot beverage (teas / coffees) and light snacks (pastries, sandwiches etc) offer from morning through to late afternoon / early evening. The unit would be based under the roof of the Applemarket . The exact times are open to negotiation / discussion and these may vary from winter to summer months.
The unit should be based on a vehicle (either motorised or towed) and moved on / off site on a daily basis. The unit will not be allowed to remain on site in the Applemarket overnight and responsibility for its off-site storage will rest with the operator.
The outlet should be capable of providing an element of seating which might include a number of portable chairs and tables.
The Council will consider granting the successful applicant an exclusive licence to operate for an initial period of 12 months. Subject to satisfactory performance, the option to extend this period for a further 24 months with annual reviews is possible.
The operator may be required to relocate within the Applemarket / John Street area from time to time in order to facilitate the holding of a number of public festivals / events each year.
Applicants are invited to make a detailed submission confirming their experience in the catering trade and suggested rent. Previous experience in the catering trade coupled with appropriate financial resources would be desirable.
