Operating Concessions in the City of Kelowna
Independent concession operators in the City of Kelowna have
two separate options with respect to operating a concession
business within City limits. They may either pursue operations on
privately owned land or they may pursue a partnership with the City
of Kelowna in order to operate on municipal lands. Regardless of
whether the operation occurs on private or public lands, a number
of key criteria must be met. These include the following:
The City of Kelowna's Property Management department administers
the oversight and awarding of concession opportunities under
municipal jurisdiction. Opportunities are awarded via a public
process, whereby the City advertises the availability of a certain
type of concession (food, activity, service, etc.) at a certain
location and then invites responses from the public. All responses
that meet the minimum criteria are evaluated by a
cross-departmental panel of City staff to determine which proposal
best meets the needs of the City. Finalization of a license
agreement with the selected applicant is subject to final approval
by City of Kelowna council.
The typical annual process with respect to new concession
opportunities is as follows:
- December to February: evaluation of new opportunities;
- February to March: request for concession proposals and
evaluation of responses;
- May to September: typical operating season for concessions;
- October to November: evaluation of summer season and concession
