Jamestown, Kentucky (PRWEB) June 21, 2016
Safe Harbor Marinas, the largest owner and operator of marinas in North America, selected Service Systems Associates to operate its culinary and retail services at Jamestown Resort and Marina located on Lake Cumberland, Kentucky.
The partnership will provide boaters with amazing guest experiences at the 300-acre vacation hub on the beautiful north shore of the lake. SSA plans to open the lake’s first beer garden as well as renovate the café and gift shop. Named the Cumberland Tap, the beer garden will seat 250 clients and feature 18 – 24 craft beers on tap as well as an extensive canned craft beer selection and wine and liquor service. The menu will offer guests an enhanced culinary experience of Americana including burgers, pizza and appetizers. History will be made on Lake Cumberland when the beer garden opens.
“This partnership is a pilot project for what promises to be a very exciting and important relationship between our two companies,” said Marshall Funk, CEO of Safe Harbor Marinas. “We are dedicated to providing our boaters and guests with the very best experience on the water; SSA understands that vision and is capable of helping us to execute it,” he added.
SSA President and CEO Sean McNicholas agreed as he explained “Safe Harbor provides a leisure activity for families across the U.S., mostly in seasonal formats like our traditional partners in cultural attractions. We are excited about this partnership as it provides an opportunity to showcase our expertise in delivering fresh concepts in culinary and retail operations.”
This partnership promises to provide marina guests with a fresh approach to culinary and retail programs while delivering superior guest experiences.
