Three food vendors may soon be trading in some coastal areas of Harvey pending a decision at tonight’s council meeting.

At last Tuesday’s agenda briefing session, a summary of the expression of interest process for the selection of mobile food and beverage operators was discussed amongst councillors.

Three operators expressed interested in trading at three different locations.

Bunsen’s Burgers, selling burgers, rolls and soft drinks submitted an expression of interest to trade at the Eco-Museum in Australind with proposed trading hours of Tuesday to Friday, 11am to 2.30pm.

Bunsen’s Burgers owner Lana West said the opportunity would provide the local community with a good quality meal option in a convenient location.

“Being able to sell our high quality burgers at the Eco-Museum would further enhance the public’s experience of the area and make mealtimes for families using the rest areas easier,” she said.

Selling barista made coffee products and beverages, The Big Coffee Van submitted an expression of interest to trade at Christina Street in Australind with proposed trading hours of seven days a week, 6am to 3pm.

Crazy Cow, also selling barista coffee and beverages might trade at the Binningup Beach carpark with proposed trading hours Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm.

It has been recommended the council accept the expressions of interest from all three operators to trade in the identified locations and authorise the chief executive officer to sign a contract for a Power to Licence Permit.
