Requests for Proposals

Riverside Art Museum Kitchen Rental Request for Proposals

Due: June 15, 2021

The Riverside Art Museum is requesting proposals from companies to be the sole lessee of our commercial kitchen located at 3425 Mission Inn, Riverside, CA 92501 for a period of at least two years. The approximately 540 square foot kitchen includes a commercial refrigerator, range, fryer, ovens, triple sinks, and some shelving. The kitchen does not include a commercial freezer, which will need to be supplied. A rental rate of a minimum of $2,000 a month and payment of RAM’s monthly gas bill will be considered. This is an ideal situation for a catering company looking for a consistent space from which to operate or a company looking to build their catering business.

RAM does not offer a restaurant in the museum and renting the kitchen does not mean operating a restaurant onsite. RAM has a thriving facility rental business and allows clients to choose which catering vendor they ultimately bring to the museum. RAM will, however, add the lessee to the list of preferred vendors to be distributed to facility rental clients.1

RAM is looking for proposals from companies that can demonstrate the following:

  • Proven track record of success and evidence of creditworthiness;
  • Quality of food and service;
  • Strong familiarity with commercial kitchen appliances, which successful lessee will be responsible for maintaining;
  • Ability to work with outside caterers who may occasionally use the space adjacent to the kitchen;
  • Respect for RAM’s mission-driven work and security of the artwork and building; and
  • Willingness to obtain Live Scan background reports on all employees or contractors with access to the kitchen space.

For additional information or to request a tour, please email Valerie Found at facilityrentals@riversideartmuseum.org. 

Please send proposals by email to facilityrentals@riversideartmuseum.org.

 

1 Renting the kitchen at 3425 Mission Inn does not imply that the company will automatically receive a contract to operate the kitchen/café facility at The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture of the Riverside Art Museum, slated to open in Spring 2022, which will have its own RFP process.
