Buffalo, NY – Mayor Byron W. Brown and the Buffalo Urban Development Corporation (“BUDC”) announced that a Request for Proposals (“RFP”) has been issued for a restaurant and food service operator to be located inside the Northland Central building at 683 Northland Avenue, the initial centerpiece building of the Northland Beltline Redevelopment Area on the East Side of Buffalo, New York. BUDC is seeking an operator that is experienced with serving the East Side, African-American community in which this fully-developed restaurant is located, as well as students, faculty and staff of the Northland Workforce Training Center.
The food service vendor will operate in a 3,900-Square Foot café-style space on the first floor of Northland Central, directly adjacent to the Northland Workforce Training Center with shared public access. The space fronts on Northland Avenue to serve all tenants of Northland Central, as well as the surrounding community. It shares space on the ground floor of this commercial building with training labs, office spaces, seating areas, and conference rooms. It will also be open to other businesses on the Northland Campus and the larger surrounding neighborhood. The brief initial experience at this location suggests that the tenant will experience a high-volume of sales and the restaurant will be patronized by the larger East Side Community, as well as the staff and students at the Northland Workforce Training center and other business tenants in the Corridor.
An information meeting will be held on Thursday, April 11th @ 11:00 AM at 683 Northland Avenue (Entrance A). A tour of the kitchen and restaurant space will immediately follow the meeting. Attendance is strongly recommended. Proposals will be due on May 1, 2019 at 4:00PM. For a copy of the RFP or to RSVP your attendance at the Information meeting, please contact David Stebbins at (716) 856-6525 or [email protected]
