FAQs | FOOD POP UP VENDOR

What type of food pop ups are you hosting?

Food pop up events are basically like mini, exceptionally curated food centric parties. We’re looking for creative + excited food partners who don’t have their own permanent space, are looking to expand their reach to a wider audience, or are just looking to help create a wonderful food experience.

What is the financial structure of the pop up?

Food pop ups will be based on a profit sharing model that is based on the cost of food being served. Food vendors will work closely with Team Flea regarding pricing and will create a menu together. Team Flea + the food vendor will split the profits (after expenses) 50/50.

Days | Time | Location

We’re super flexible with timing! Typically, evenings or weekends may work best for most people during the holiday season.

What infrastructure is available for me at Van Aken?

Food vendors are expected to bring their own equipment. The kitchen of the location we are occupying has not been built out yet, and will only have a sink for washing/rinsing/sanitizing. There will be ample space for setting up skillets, griddles, etc. Please note, no open flames will be permitted.

What about cups, plates, glasses, etc?

In order to stay on brand, Team Flea will purchase cups, plates, glasses necessary to serve your food. Please let Team Flea know ASAP what kinds of flatware is required to eat your food. This will be taken out as an expense before profit is allocated.

Who will work front of house?

Food partners are required to bring their own front of house staff.

What about permitting?

Because these are pop up events, you will pull a temporary food service permit with the Cuyahoga County Board of Health. This is the same permit that you’d pull for a regular Flea! It’s very simple, and we’re here to help walk you through it. If you have any questions regarding the permitting process please contact us at vendors@theclevelandflea.com.

Will a member of Team Flea be present during the event?

Of course! A memeber of Team Flea will be there as a resource, but you will need to provide appropriate amount of staffing to implement a wonderful guest experience.
