The Recreation and Park Commission approved the publication and distribution of a Request forProposals (RFP) package on July 16, 2009. The RFP solicited respondents to operate pushcartsin City Parks. The RFP asked respondents to bid on specific park locations and allowedrespondents to propose to operate in parks other than those where pushcarts are currently located(Golden Gate Park and Civic Center).The Department undertook this endeavor in an effort to activate park spaces, provide additionalamenities to park users and to generate additional revenue to the Department. The RFPprioritized menus featuring healthy and sustainably grown foods as well as those featuringdistinct culinary offerings.Earlier this year, the Commission approved the selection of Blue Bottle Coffee to operate aMobile Food Concession in Dolores Park. Department staff have since negotiated permits withBlue Bottle (Exhibit A). The Department is currently accepting proposals on a rolling basis andstaff intends to return to future Commission meetings with additional selected respondents.
