Forbes Arts Society are seeking an operator for their new gallery café – a contemporary food and beverage enterprise with flair, creativity and imagination that meets the demand for quality regional cuisine in the Forbes Shire area. That’s the Forbes Arts Society’s vision for the café to be located within the new Forbes Cultural and Arts Centre at 110 Lachlan Street, Forbes.
FAS are currently seeking expressions of interest from individuals or businesses looking for a unique opportunity to develop their operations in the hospitality industry by running the Centre’s café. With construction set to commence in the coming months, the former Forbes Ambulance Station will soon be transformed into a vibrant, civic hub. The Centre is scheduled for completion in late 2022.
Forbes Arts Society Chairperson, Dr Karen Ritchie said, “we are really excited about the prospect of working closely with the preferred café operator over the next 12 months to create a contemporary eatery that’s welcoming, accessible and complements the Centre’s other creative and collaborative spaces.”
In its current design, the café accommodates seating for 25 people inside, and has an expansive outdoor courtyard with seating for upward of 50 people.
To obtain an Expression of Interest package or to find out more, contact email@example.com. Submissions close 5pm, Friday 29 October 2021.
The Forbes Cultural and Arts Centre development is part of the $7.2 million ‘Boosting the Lachlan Valley Economy Art Project’ which is proudly funded by the NSW Government’s Regional Growth – Environment and Tourism Fund, the Forbes Arts Society, Forbes Shire Council, Lachlan Shire Council and Evolution Mining.
