DNC Parks & Resorts at Sequoia, Inc., has been selected to receive a new 10-year concessions contract to operate overnight accommodations, food and beverage, and other services at Sequoia National Park (Wuksachi, Lodgepole, Bearpaw). The new contract resulted from a bidding process required by the 1998 Concessions Management Improvement Act.
Concession contract proposals for Sequoia National Park were solicited by the National Park Service from May 7 through October 8, 2015.
DNC Parks & Resorts at Sequoia, Inc., is a subsidiary of the New York-based Delaware North Parks & Resorts, which has provided hospitality services for more than 70 years. Another subsidiary, DNC Parks & Resorts at Kings Canyon, Inc., currently holds a concession contract to operate the lodging, food and beverage, and retail operations in Kings Canyon National Park.
Delaware North Companies Parks & Resorts, Inc., operates concessions at other National Park Service sites, including Shenandoah, Yellowstone, and Grand Canyon national parks. The corporation received international media attention in March for its controversial trademark of names in Yosemite National Park, which came to light after DNC’s concessions contract there was not renewed.
