Request for Proposal – Small Grocery Store Operator
If you haven't gotten your proposal in yet, there's a grace period until Sunday, May 5.
The Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation is looking for a grocery store operator to address the food desert situation here in our neighborhood. We’re opening a grocery in late summer of 2019 to bring affordable groceries back to Walnut Hills and we’re seeking the best possible person or group to operate it.
The ideal candidate has a passion for food justice and experience starting up as well as managing a neighborhood grocery or retail establishment. We’re seeking someone who would embrace opening a friendly grocery in a resurgent and diverse neighborhood that also happens to be a food desert.
If you’re a passionate food person who’s interested in making a positive impact in a rapidly-growing business district, this could be a great opportunity for you.
Please send your proposal to Gary Dangel at the Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation by 11:59 pm on Sunday, March 31, 2019.
The deadline for applications has been extended to 11:59p on Sunday, April 21, 2019.
