Franchises & Concessions

The Mayor's Office of Contract Services reviews and certifies agency compliance with the applicable laws and regulations for franchises and concessions. In certain circumstances, franchises and concessions are also subject to the approval of the Franchise and Concession Review Committee (FCRC).

  • Franchises are grants of the right to occupy or to use the City's inalienable property, such as streets or parks, for a public service.
  • Concessions are grants for the private use of city-owned property for which the City receives compensation.

The FCRC is comprised of the following officials or their designees: the Mayor; the Director of the Office of Management and Budget; the Corporation Counsel; the Comptroller; and one additional appointee of the Mayor. The Borough Presidents also serve as members of the FCRC. Each member of the FCRC holds one vote, except for the Borough Presidents, who share one vote, which is determined according to the location of the concession and/or franchise at issue.

Concessions are subject to Title 12 of the Rules of the City of New York, commonly referred to as the Concession Rules.

Additional Franchise and Concession Information

Interested in finding out what franchise or concession opportunities are available? Below is a list of additional resources on existing franchise and concession opportunities and general information for the New York City Departments of Parks and Recreation, the Department of Transportation, and the Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications:


The Concession Rules require City agencies to create annual concession plans (referred to as "Agency Annual Concession Plan") describing proposed concession actions for the upcoming fiscal year. These plans include all concessions set to expire, anticipated new and continuing concessions, as well as concession renewals and/or extensions planned for each of the five Boroughs in the next fiscal year. The Mayor's Office of Contract Services then works with these agencies to compile a comprehensive Agency Annual Concession Plan. Previous Agency Annual Concession Plans can be accessed by clicking on the links below:

FCRC Reports

The Concession Rules require the City Chief Procurement Officer to produce an Annual Concession Report ("CCPO Annual Report") summarizing the currently effective concessions. The summary includes: the registration status of each concession; a brief description of each concession awarded; the method by which each concession was awarded; and the approximate gross revenues received by the City for each concession during the prior fiscal year. The past CCPO Annual Reports can be accessed by clicking on the links below:
