No takers for Queensway concession

Kelowna city council has found a company to run the food concession at Hot Sands Beach in City Park.

But its bid to establish a concession stand at the Queensway bus terminus beside City Hall has come up empty.

On Monday, council was told no one responded to the offer of a year-round concession at the downtown bus loop, prompting one councillor to say that could be because there are already restaurants in the area.

Coun. Andre Blanleil noted that there is a Subway sandwich shop very close by and it was clear there was no interest by any potential concessionaire.

“So if there is no interest, I don’t think we should pursue this,” he said.

As for the Hot Sands concession, it was awarded to Service Star F&B Services for three years, netting the city $4,500 this year, $5,000 next year and $5,500 in 2014. The rent for the location in 2011 was $1,000.
