Food & Beverage Services for Affinity Place

Request for Expressions of Interest

Issue Date: July 6, 2023

Submission Deadline: July 17, 2023 @ 12:00 pm


Request To: 

The City of Estevan is sending out this Request for Expression of Interest (REOI) to gauge interest in the opportunity to operate the food and beverage locations at Affinity Place.

The primary objective of this REOI is to assess interest in this opportunity and to gather information that will be useful for finalizing the details of such an opportunity.

The City of Estevan is looking for an Operator to contract to rent, manage and operate the Concessions. The Operator would have the exclusive rights to the main concession and lounge during the agreed upon term’s normal business operations. During special events food & beverage service will be an option to be discussed. Any expressions of interest received will be reviewed. The city will then contact potential Operators to set up a meeting with the city for further discussion to clarify the contract details.

The busy hockey season starts in September so the City of Estevan would like to have all details finalized and the Operator set to start by at least mid August.

The City of Estevan expects there will be questions and concerns about this opportunity. Most details will be slated for discussion after the initial expressions of interest have been received. If you have questions about the initial expression of interest tender letter, please contact City Treasurer Trudy Firth by phone (306-634-1813) or by email (

If your organization would like to discuss the possibility of operating the food and beverage locations at Affinity Place, please send an expression of interest tender letter confirming that your organization can perform the scope of work and are interested in pursuing this opportunity. Please provide a business plan overview and list relevant background and any strengths in implementing the strategic and continuous supply of the required food and beverage services. All workers must meet legislated public health provincial requirements.

Please submit your REOI letter before 12:00 p.m., C.S.T., Monday July 17, 2023, to the following address:
