The Chicago Department of Aviation has issued a request for proposals for a dual-purpose convenience and concession at Chicago O’Hare International (ORD) Airport Multimodal Facility, which will open in November 2018.
The RFP is for one concessions space of about 500 square feet, and the business chosen will provide both concession products and convenience items and will also support an adjacent area of vending machines. The airport’s goal is to attract 100 percent Airport Concession Disadvantaged Business Enterprise participation for the opportunity. The agreement term is seven years, with options for renewal. Responses to the RFP will be due January 30, 2018.
The O’Hare multimodal facility will be the airport’s new hub of rental car operations and public parking, with all rental car patrons, bus passengers, shuttle passengers, and hotel transport passengers accessing the airport through this single facility.
“This concession RFP is one of many opportunities for businesses to partner with the CDA as we modernize O’Hare and develop new facilities that will improve the customer experience at our airport,” said Ginger Evans, commissioner of the Chicago Department of Aviation. “Through this RFP and with all our projects, we are committed to doing everything we can to provide more opportunities for disadvantaged businesses at our airports.”
More information about the RFP and the application process is available at ORD’s online data room.
