(January 3, 2022) A new operator with island experience will operate the Children’s Beach concession stand for the next five years.
The Select Board is expected to award the lease for the beachfront snack bar until 2026 to The Surf LLC, which currently operates the Surfside Beach concession, when it meets via Zoom on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m.
The Surf, led by Abby Shaw and Stacey MacEachern, was the top bidder for the Children’s Beach lease, offering $ 138,144 plus 3% of gross annual income above $ 100,000.
The offers were submitted by current operator The Hungry Minnow, run by Rebecca Chapa, and Terry Noyes’ Beach Yoshi, city manager Libby Gibson said.
