Gateway National Recreation Area announces Food and Beverage Opportunities at Sandy Hook, NJ. The park will issue up to fourteen (14) in-park Commercial Use Authorizations (CUAs) to be located in the park's beach centers (B, C, D, E, G, I and the Ferry Dock). Sandy Hook is located at the north end of the New Jersey shore, connected by Route 36 in Monmouth County. The approximately 7 miles of ocean and bay waters make Sandy Hook a favorite Jersey Shore getaway.

The park will issue CUAs for summer 2015 and 2016 seasons which will authorize mobile food and beverage vendors to operate from, at minimum, the Friday before Memorial Day through Labor Day of each year.

Vendors interested in this opportunity must submit the required Commercial Use Authorization Application Form (OMB Control No: 1024-0268) and Supplemental Application Form for each mobile operation. Vendors should identify their preferred location and one alternate location from which they would be willing to operate. There is no guarantee that selected Vendors will be assigned their preferred location. The Park will select applicants and assign locations based on an Applicant's ability to meet specific criteria and the Park's desire to provide visitors with a wide variety of offerings. All CUAs will be subject to the General Conditions listed in the Commercial Use Authorization Application Form (OMB Control No: 1024-0268)
