Sewickley’s Tull Family Theater, a non-profit, film-driven cultural center and theater, is looking to team up with innovative Pittsburgh chefs, restaurant groups and entrepreneurs to bring food and dining options to the center.
Since opening two years ago, the Tull Family Theater has served as a community and cultural center for the northern suburbs of Pittsburgh, and is now looking to become a culinary center, as well.
“The idea of partnering with a high-quality food provider that could enhance the experience came to us very early,” says Carolina Thor, executive director. “Our concessions are very basic, just popcorn and candy, and we want to provide additional options.”
The center boasts a 2,044-square-foot auxiliary space, and an already-installed commercial kitchen. Because the space is regularly rented for special events, proposals should also include options for coordinating and catering.
Thor says that the center is open to a wide variety of types of food partners, from pop-ups to traditional restaurants.
“We are really open to applicants, and we kept it very general on purpose,” says Thor. “From established downtown places to small businesses, we want to hear from anyone who has been looking for an opportunity like this.”
The application deadline is Friday, August 30. To apply, visit the website.
