Burgers, hot dogs, poutine – oh my!
Yukon Gravy Train has officially chugged into the Takhini Arena.
Last Monday, city council approved third reading of its lease agreement with the company for the concession space.
The company is well-known for serving up specialty burgers, hot dogs, French fries and other tasty grub through the summer at numerous events around the territory. It does so from its food truck and at the arena during the winter.
Coaches, hockey players, skaters and those taking in the many ice sports at the rink have enjoyed the offerings of the Gravy Train for a number of seasons.
The lease for the concession had been held by the Whitehorse Minor Hockey Association, which opted to end the deal last July.
Yukon Gravy Train was the only company to respond to an expression of interest the city put out for the space.
The new lease will be in place until Sept. 30, 2021. It includes a provision to allow three one-year extensions after that, with Yukon Gravy Train paying $375 monthly between Oct. 1 and March 31 each year.
Meanwhile, between April 1 and Sept. 30, the city will receive 10 per cent of the gross sales made at the concessions during special events held at the rink in the off-season.
