    1. Proposers submitting a Proposal to operate a licensed or franchised facility must independently meet all requirements of the Request for Proposal (RFP) and may not rely on the qualifications of the licensor/franchisor.  Additionally, Proposers who are proposing to operate a licensed/franchised facility must provide a letter from the licensor/franchisor granting the rights to operate the license/franchise at the Airport, or stating that the terms of a license/franchise agreement have been agreed upon pending award of the concession space.  Licensors/franchisors may propose directly; however, their licensees/franchisees will be considered Subtenants and the licensor/franchisor must meet the Minimum Qualifications set forth above to be considered for award of an Agreement.  Upon award, any Proposer submitting a licensed or franchised facility must provide the County with an executed copy of the license or franchise agreement.
