Anyone who provides goods or services and generates revenue on Philadelphia Parks & Recreation land must have a contract with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation to do so.
Types of concessions
Parks & Rec’s Concessions Management Unit currently contracts with about 50 different food service and recreation businesses operating in Philadelphia’s parks and recreation system. These include:
- Mobile food vending
- Bike rental kiosks
- Golf courses
Most concessions opportunities arise from a request for proposal (RFP) that is issued by Parks & Rec.
