Grand Intervention: International Food Court

Grand Avenue Intervention: Submission Gallery

International Food Court & Music Stage 

Submitted by Gordon Hom, Cerritos, California

Add to the park 100 to 150 mini restaurants that are only leased to owner/operators. The dream of opening your first restaurant and testing/developing your business skills can have a start here. A one–to-three-year lease will allow a successful owner to kick-start his next business, or end his business dream. The Small Business Administration and County Health Department could partner in the training of new business people. The ethnic diversity of Los Angeles would be fully represented in the foods available to us.

While park patrons eat, the Food Court Stage will host jazz bands, symphonic orchestras, singing groups and school orchestras for everyone’s enjoyment.
