Welcome to the formal application form to enter into a lottery to receive a free greenhouse rental for your restaurant for up to 4 months. Greenhouses will be awarded to 25 different restaurants throughout the City of Rochester. If awarded, a greenhouse will be delivered, set up and secured with concrete weights onto a pre-designated area on or in front of your property. After the rental period, the greenhouse will be broken down and taken away at no expense to you. *Filling out the application does not guarantee you will receive a greenhouse.
-The greenhouse rental program is a partnership of Roc Holiday Village and the City of Rochester, and has been privately funded by local businesses and community funds.
-There is no fee to enter the lottery, and no fee for the set up or break down of the structure.
-Once delivered and set up by Roc Holiday Village, you will be responsible to maintain the structure, furnish it, secure it so that it is kept free from damage and/or vandalism, keep it free of snow, and heat it while in use. Our team, along with the Rochester Fire Department can help you to determine the right way to heat the structure and run the electric to it.
-Selected restaurants will receive marketing support as part of the social media advertising campaign conducted by Roc Holiday Village.
-If awarded a greenhouse in the lottery, you will need to:
Apply for the pertinent City of Rochester permit via the Flower City Winter Sidewalks Program (either right-of-way or private property permit, depending on where the structure is placed). The City is waiving all fees associated with the permit. Learn more about what is required for these permits, like insurance and site plans, at https://www.jumpstartingroc.com/flower-city-winter-sidewalks
Enter into a contract with Roc Holiday Village.
Provide additional insurance rider to Roc Holiday Village (for the entirety of the free rental period) as well as sign a hold harmless insurance waiver. Once the structure is in your possession you will hold full responsibility for its safe return at the end of the rental period.
-Roc Holiday Village will work hand in hand with the participating restaurants to help create a way to integrate the structure into your already existing business that maximizes your profits. We will share our experience and expertise that we have learned from our winter igloos at Roc Holiday Village.
