SOME OF THE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who is developing the BLOCK 40 Food Hall?
Society 8 Hospitality, a full service restaurant and events company who have also launched several successful restaurant concepts including SoLita, Park & Ocean, Wild Thyme Oceanside Eatery and Fort Lauderdales' first food hall SISTRUNK MARKETPLACE.
So what exactly is BLOCK 40 FOOD HALL?
Located Downtown Hollywood on Young Circle will be “Hollywood's first food hall”. The 15,000-square-foot multi-use space will be home to almost 20 local businesses including culinary foods, craft beverages and entertainment. Created to intrigue your creative side with interactive culinary classes, art curation, and live entertainment programming. Block 40 is something unique to Hollywood.
What is the vision for the food offerings at Block 40?
The general vision for the food offerings will be a series of stalls and shops offering high quality, chef-driven specialty foods with a wide range of diversity. Each stall serves highly specialized and targeted culinary offerings, artisan and local in design and execution, with affordable prices typically found in food halls serving food counter-style. Each stall will present its own unique personality with stalls with a variety of sizes available depending on location, menu and what we consider might be the best ‘neighbors’. Most stalls feature local area chefs/restaurateurs looking to expand their brand identities or trying to create a new one using Block 40 as a launch site.
Where is BLOCK 40 located?
Located in the base of 1818 Park, Hollywood's Newest Apartment Residences. Located in heart of Hollywood, FL on Young Circle, this once historic site has been transformed into a lifestyle live, work & play complex. Situated in the center of one of the fastest growing residential population and large-scale business expansions, the Food Hall is poised to be an economic engine for the food and beverage industry in the area for years to come.
How do I apply to become a vendor at the FOOD HALL?
All potential occupants can apply through the website. Within the application, you will be asked to present a proposal which will detail your concept. The application begins the process of arranging for presentations, interviews, and potential tastings to be conducted by the management company. We review all potential applicants and make determinations as to ensure a vibrant, non-repetitive and all-encompassing line-up of unique businesses and start-ups for a projected opening Winter 2022. The success of the Food Hall hinges on the synergy of a carefully curated, diverse line-up of vendors.
What will a typical food stall look like?
Food stalls/retail stands will vary in size from 10’ by 10’ to 10’ by 15’ . Each stall can house whatever cooking equipment is needed and we encourage stall occupants to allow for some seating at their counter as well. General seating will be plentiful but having some energy at the stall itself will help ‘personalize’ that space. Select stalls will have open space in the front to provide customization of displays including refrigeration and heat if needed. Each stall’s design must be approved for certain design criteria and process which will be established but again, we will do our best to allow the Food Hall to develop a personalized look and feel that is both eye-catching and unique.
What do you think this will cost a Tenant in build-out and overall cost of opening?
Obviously, there is no way to estimate a total to this without knowing what each stall will offer. However, it is our estimation that the Tenant might spend within a range of $10,000-$25,000 (on a larger stall) to up-fit their stall in addition to their equipment costs. For smaller stalls we approximate between $5,000 and $10,000 in equipment costs. It is our estimation that your overall costs will be minimal compared to street side locations and overall size considerations – as well as not having to provide seating, bars or other guest accommodation such as restrooms. Estimates of costs do not include deposits, working capital, potential permits, fees and costs that Tenants may incur in planning and permitting with the city and county.
What about storage?
A select larger stalls will have access to our additional storage area for refrigeration. Most stalls will have storage on site within their footprint.
What about general maintenance/upkeep and trash removal?
Block 40 manages staff to keep the general area and all common areas clean and accessible. Each stall operator will be responsible for and expected to maintain their areas with a high level of cleanliness and attention to detail. Additionally, each stall operator will secure their own Broward County Health Permit, if applicable, and will be required to maintain certain scores dictated in the lease agreement. There will be a recycling area in the main trash handling area. Block 40 will manage all waste removal from that common waste area.
What will the lease terms look like?
There are a variety of lease terms to consider. Our leases are established for each tenant based on the size of the desired space and the amount of Tenant Improvement the Food Hall will make in the space for the Tenant’s use. Base rent ranges between $1,500 and $3,500 per month plus a percentage of sales for rent and direct pass thru operational expenses. The various term options will be discussed individually with potential Tenants during the application process.
What else do I need to know?
Concept inspired beverages may be offered at your kiosk with prior approval. Individual stall owners are not allowed to sell or serve alcohol at their stalls. Your guests may wander the food hall and choose their own beverages from multiple locations in the Food Hall and you will be encouraged to sell non-alcoholic beverages that best represent your food and vibe.
Block 40 has a marketing and promotions staff that will constantly promote and book events at the Food Hall. While it is impossible to estimate the percentage of time that there will be events in this open air space, there will be signature events and feature activation to highlight the overall Food Hall and drive traffic into the vendors’ isles.
Block 40 will be open seven days a week. The specific hours for the Food Hall will vary but are planned to be 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. with extended hours on weekends, Friday & Saturday evenings to 12am and Saturday and Sunday Mornings opening at 9am.
Each potential stall owner will be asked to present a simple yet thorough business plan that will detail the trade dress, specific stall concept/culture statement, design inspirations, menu with pricing and general layout of the space – all of which will become exhibits to the individual stall owner’s lease agreement. We have an array of stall ideas in mind but we will be completely open to new and innovative ideas that we might not have on our list of potential stall occupants. Our collective goal is ‘best of class’ in all offerings and to that end we will conduct comprehensive food tastings with potential Tenants.
