Cafe Operator opportunity at Knightswood Community Centre

Knightswood Community Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from appropriate businesses/ organisations with a view to them securing the cafe concession for Knightswood Community Centre in Glasgow.

The Community Centre is one of the city’s busiest community venues with up to 50,000 visits per year from people accessing a broad range of community services and activities. Located in the heart of Knightswood, on the main thoroughfare of Alderman Road, it forms part of a single complex that also comprises the local library and Glasgow Housing Association hub.

Over the last seven years the Centre has been community managed by Knightswood Community SCIO (KCSCIO). Its object is to advance citizenship and community development and provide social, cultural, recreational, and educational facilities that will improve the conditions of life for people in the Knightswood community. Amongst other facilities the Centre has a kitchen and cafe area with seating for approximately sixty people.

Should this opportunity be of interest to you, they would be grateful if you would confirm your EOI by email and provide a brief overview of your business/ organisation, its experience in managing and operating a cafe, and a named contact for further communications. Social enterprises are particularly encouraged to submit an EOI.

A more detailed proposal will be sought from a small number of respondents following a visit to the centre and further discussion. KCSCIO will also endeavour to provide any further information these organisations need to submit a robust proposal.

EOIs or any initial queries should be emailed to Gordon Giles (Development Officer) at
