MENU ITEMS

All vendors will be limited to a maximum of four items. Please provide a brief description of each item with pricing.  Prices need to be in full dollar amounts and are subject to approval. 

The main goal of our food courts is to serve our patrons quality menu items by professional, friendly staff--with wait times kept to a minimum.  Make sure your menu selections can be served in a timely manner.  Critical to efficient turnaround (and more sales!) are points of service. Booths must be able to provide at least 4 points of sale during peak times.  All menu items and pricing subject to approval.
 
We encourage you to include at least one vegetarian or vegan menu item. Please consider gluten-free options, as well. 
 
Note: Food Vendors are not allowed to sell beverages, including bottled water, alcohol, or soft drinks. Vendors may not sell any merchandise other than food, desserts, and snacks including but not limited to: shirts, hats, bandanas, etc.  

SIGNAGE

Our Creative team designs and produces the signage for all booths, ensuring a unified, professional and visually appealing food court. The booth name (note: no logos or other graphics), the menu item and price are featured on a colorful banner.  The simpler, the better.
