at The Snack Shack at the Hyannis Harbor Overlook

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Hyannis, MA – September 13, 2022) The Town of Barnstable’s Economic Development Division is seeking to facilitate collaborations among businesses and organizations that want to partner with a food service entrepreneur or established local business who will provide wholesale product to sell at the Snack Shack, a pop-up commercial kitchen that offers high visibility in a busy location with low cost and low risk.  Staff from the Town’s Economic Development Division will offer guidance to the organization or business through the logistics of permitting and reserving the temperature controlled space at the Harbor Overlook in downtown Hyannis.  Limited weekends are available and scheduled days and hours in September and October are filled on a rolling first come, first serve basis.  Online application and program details are available HERE.

As an example, the Cape Cod Challenger Club is partnering with Smith Family Popcorn, offering snack sized portions along with drinks and other items.  Proceeds will benefit their mission to enrich the quality of life for children and adults with physical and/or developmental disabilities.

The Snack Shack at the Harbor Overlook in downtown Hyannis is a pilot food service program designed for visitors to grab a quick snack on their way to and from Main Street and Hyannis Harbor.  This food component complements the popular HyArts Artist Shanties along with the live music and interactive programs scheduled in the downtown Hyannis cultural district. The cooperative partnership idea developed from the challenges of staffing the pop-up food shanty which opened to the public in July.

The Harbor Overlook is a scenic and visible spot in downtown Hyannis, located in the heart of the Hyannis HyArts Cultural District, at the corner of South and Ocean Streets, steps away from the island ferry terminals, Hyannis Main Street, the Village Green, Bismore Park and overlooking Aselton Park and Hyannis Harbor. More information here:
