Call for Bids - Shared Kitchen


SEEKING GENERAL CONTRACTOR

PROJECT TITLE

CoMo Cooks Shared Kitchen
14 E. Business Loop 70
Columbia, MO 65203

OWNER

The Business Loop Community Improvement District (CID)
14 E. Business Loop 70
Columbia, MO 65203


PROJECT BACKGROUND

The CoMo Cooks Shared Kitchen is a not-for-profit licensed commercial space that provides a pathway for food entrepreneurs—ranging from chefs, caterers, food truck operators, and bakers, to value-added producers and packaged food and beverage makers—to launch and grow their businesses. 

Unlike a traditional restaurant kitchen, this kitchen is designed to accommodate multiple clients at once with a range of different functions. It is a not a customer-facing space and is focused on utility and function. We are currently operating out of another location and have the majority of the kitchen equipment needed.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Business Loop CID is seeking a general contractor to manage the construction of a shared commercial kitchen, including securing of required sub-contractors. Architectural and MEP drawings have been completed.

Minor demolition will be required. Adjoining office will be in operation during the construction process. The bulk of the kitchen equipment is currently being used at a temporary location so the transition of this equipment to the new space with minimal interruption to kitchen clients will be required.

All work completed by or on behalf of the CID shall conform to the Missouri Prevailing Wages on Public Works Act, Sections 290.210 through 290.340, RSMo., as amended. Local vendors and Business Loop vendors preferred, if possible
