Parks Department seeking catering bids

The Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department is seeking bids for catering services at three major private rental facilities: Salomon Farm Park, the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory and Promenade Park, which opens this summer and is the first phase of the Riverfront Fort Wayne development project.

This opportunity allows interested parties to bid for contracts to be a designated “house caterer” for all rental events taking place within one, two, or all three locations. All renters of the respective facilities must commission the service of a house caterer, giving the selected business the opportunity to reach hundreds of rental clients each year.

Interested parties are invited to attend the mandatory pre-bid meeting on Feb. 21 at 11 a.m. at the Botanical Conservatory’s Saguaro Room. Bid packets will then be due Feb. 28 at 11 a.m. Late bids will not be accepted.
