New mobile catering pitches in Elmbridge parks and open spaces
This is a very interesting development by Elmbridge Borough Council.
Elmbridge Council are inviting catering businesses to tender for a mobile catering pitch across its many green open spaces.
If you have a catering business or are interested in starting one up that could serve visitors to the following parks and riverside locations please do get in touch with them.
The pitches will be available from spring 2021 at nine popular parks and riverside locations at the following locations:
- Brooklands Community Park, Weybridge
- Giggs Hill Green, Long Ditton
- Grovelands Recreation Ground, West Molesey
- Hersham Recreation Ground, Hersham
- Hurst Park, East Molesey
- Molesey Hurst, East Molesey
- Oatlands Recreation Ground, Weybridge
- West End Recreation Ground, Esher
- The Xcel Sports Hub, Walton-on-Thames
Elmbridge Council are currently advertising these ‘mobile catering opportunities’ and inviting businesses to tender for the pitches.
Cllr Janet Turner, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said: “Elmbridge has a wide variety of parks and open spaces that attract a high number of visitors during the week and at weekends. Some locations are popular routes for running, walking or cycling. Other parks are well used by people visiting play areas, using the fitness equipment or the tennis and basketball courts. Most of the sites host organised rugby, football and cricket training and games. This is a real business opportunity for local mobile catering companies.”
The Council will consider each application based on menu available, experience and business plan. Applicants will also be asked to explain how the business will tackle waste and operate in an environmentally friendly way.
