Summary

505707 Ontario Limited o/a Grenadier Group (the "Grenadier Group") has License Agreements with the City to exclusively operate food and restaurant facilities in High Park and Western Beaches.  The Grenadier Group submitted an unsolicited proposal to the City to extend the Licence Agreements for an additional 15 years, including $4.5 million in additional capital investment to redevelop the Joy Oil Station and undertake capital improvements at the High Park and Western Beaches concession facilities.  The current Licence Agreements expire in May 2016.

 

City Council directed staff to negotiate with Grenadier Group and carry out an analysis of the Grenadier Group proposal, as well as consider alternative uses for the Joy Oil Station and evaluate other opportunities to maximize the value at each licensed location.

 

Staff have reviewed the proposal with the assistance of a business consultant and negotiated with the Grenadier Group.   The purpose of this report is to submit the proposed terms and conditions of the Licence Extension with Grenadier Group for High Park and Western Beaches for approval, and evaluate other opportunities to maximize the value at each location.
