About the opportunity: The Florida Park Service is seeking a partner to provide visitor services as a full-service Concessionaire. Requested services include operating the Visitor Center to include: Fort Tour ticket sales, merchandise resale, food and beverage operation, recreational equipment rentals, and similar services. The Visitor Center was operated by the Florida Park Service until December 31, 2015. Since January 1, 2016, a private-sector partner has operated the Visitor Center as a Concessionaire.  The current Concessionaire has elected to terminate the Concession Agreement for convenience, which was the catalyst to this Call for Business Plans.
