Chamizal National Memorial Providing New Opportunity for Food Vendors

 

Chamizal National Memorial has announced business opportunities for providing food (theme related), beverage services and one alcohol vendor at regularly scheduled events that take place at the Memorial for the 2012-2013 season. The regularly scheduled events typically take place each Sunday beginning mid-June through August. There are eight electrical spaces to accommodate a maximum of eight vendors operating at any one event. A historical five year average of annual gross receipts resulting from providing food and beverages at Chamizal are approximately $10,500 per vendor. However, the National Park Service has assumed that the possibility exists that a different food and beverage selection may generate additional revenue in the future.

A Commercial Use Authorization (CUA) is required to provide food and beverage services at Chamizal National Memorial. The application processing fee is non-refundable $50.00 (check, money order, or cashiers check made payable to the National Park Service) which must accompany each application. Upon vendor selection there is an additional fee of $250.00 for the issuance of the two year CUA. Commercial Use Authorization request packages will be available from December 12, 2011 and must be returned no later than January 13, 2012.
