Invitation to tender
Wasps (Workshop and Artists Studio Provision Scotland) is looking for an experienced and creative café operator to operate and manage a café – and potentially other catering services – within Inverness Creative Academy, which is due to open in 2021.
This exciting and eagerly awaited new development will bring the historic Midmills building, formerly Inverness Royal Academy, back into public use. The café will be situated in the beautifully restored Victorian Assembly Hall, serving the visiting public, businesses, artists, students and freelancers that will be resident tenants within the new facility.
We are seeking a cafe operator who shares Wasps values to help launch Inverness Creative Academy to the public with a buzz of excitement, and work with us to build a strong community with our tenants and local residents by offering quality, creative, sustainable and great-value products at a destination cafe within this new facility.
Interested parties can find all required information in the Invitation to Tender and accompanying appendixes, available from this page in the downloads section on the right hand side. A full timeline is outlined on page 10 of the Invitation to Tender, but please note the deadline for submission of 12:00 noon on 11 June 2021.
Proposals will be assessed on the basis of experience, quality of approach and viability of the proposal. Acceptance of any proposal will be subject to a final contract, to be entered into by Wasps and the successful party, which will take the form of a ‘licence to occupy’ agreement in exchange for an agreed rental charge.
