our background

Strong and Experienced

UCG Associates has over 31 years experience serving government agencies throughout the region in the areas of concessions programing, concessions management and finance.  We have provided consulting services to well over 150 clients, large and small, throughout the United States, Canada, South America, and the Caribbean. We are a DBE/MBE firm, certified in Illinois and through many other jurisdictions.

We are the concession program manager for the Chicago Park District, responsible for administering all aspects of the concession program. This includes oversight of the NOA process (concession applications, evaluations and award); negotiation and enforcement of operating agreements and issuing site specific permits associated with those agreements. We are also responsible for oversight of the operational aspects of the the concession locations.  This includes inspecting concession facilities and operations for health code compliance, as well as collecting fees on behalf of the Park District.

We are grateful for the opportunity to work in partnership with the Chicago Park District and its concessionaires to build and maintain a high quality concessions program with a variety of foods, commodities and services that will enhance the use of the parks.
