RFP # 2023-02: Qualified Preferred Caterer (CLOSED)


West Shore Parks (WSPR) is soliciting Proposals from experienced, professional catering companies capable of providing all food and staff needed to supply, deliver, set up and clean up catered meals for various events at Juan de Fuca Recreation Centre in the Westshore, Victoria, B.C. Ideally, WSPR wishes to enter into an exclusive Contract with one qualified Catering Company (the “Contractor”) who are permitted by the Health Authority to provide catering services. Any resulting Contract is exclusive to the Fieldhouse Kitchen but not the site, meaning the successful Contractor does not have the exclusive right to provide these services to WSPR. WSPR reserves the right to allow other Contractors on-site to deliver food services but will grant exclusive rights of the kitchen to the contractor.
