The Urban Development Corporation (UDC), owner and operator of the Dunn's River Falls and Park, is inviting business operators to take advantage of new offers at the attraction, inclusive of selling confectioneries, Jamaican patties, fast food, and operating a pizzeria.
Adding these services will aid the continued development of the world-famous Dunn's River Falls & Park (DRFP) in St Ann and help meet the diverse needs of the over 700,000 visitors from across the world who travel to the facility annually.
Applicants are invited to submit separate offers in accordance with the procedures stipulated in the respective Information Memorandum Document (IMD) by Thursday, March 31, no later than 3 p.m., in the respectively labelled tender box, located on the ground floor of the Office Centre Building, 12 Ocean Boulevard, Kingston Mall. Proposals submitted after this time and date will be automatically rejected.
The IMDs are currently available on the UDC's website at www.udcja.com/investments-opportunities. The document is also currently available at the UDC head office between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday, upon payment of a non-refundable fee of $2,500 by cash or manager's cheque payable to the UDC. Over the last two years, the UDC also extended invitations to the public for the development of other offerings such as new entertainment activities, natural beverage station, ice-cream sale points and rental of shoe stands.
Currently, the property is also benefiting from the development of the Central Gardens project, which will see the completion of kiosks in 2016 to offer more product variety to patrons, as well as a water facility for recreational purposes.
