DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — Entrepreneurs with local flare and unique menus are wanted for two new food stands in Downtown Brooklyn’s public plazas.
The Downtown Brooklyn Partnership is looking for local food businesses to operate the new kiosks at Albee Square and Willoughby Plaza, officials said.
The local business group released Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for the two stands on Monday, saying it is looking for food operators who “capture the diversity and originality of local fare and contribute to the neighborhood’s burgeoning reputation as a culinary destination.”
“We are looking for great entrepreneurs to join the neighborhood and take full advantage of the area’s growth,” DBP President Regina Myer said in a statement.
“Right in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn — with easy access to public transport, fantastic shopping, educational and cultural institutions and booming residential communities — these kiosks are perfectly situated for cutting edge food and beverage operators.”
Each stand would be 100 square feet and would be designed by urban architecture studio WXY. They’ll be outfitted with custom signs, art and lighting.
The Partnership will pick the operators based on financial viability, experience, and “quality and uniqueness of existing food and beverage operations,” officials said.
Proposals are due by 5 p.m. on April 14.
