Sand Dunes Beach Services has been awarded concession contracts for seven beach walkover locations in Madeira Beach and Alden Suites at 5900 Gulf Blvd., in St. Pete Beach.
The agreements include cabanas, umbrellas and lounge chairs at all locations.
“We’re very happy to have Sand Dunes Beach Services provide beach concession services to the residents and tourists on our seven walkover beach locations comparable to the service they currently provide at the county-owned Madeira Beach Access Park,” said Madeira Beach City Manager Shane Crawford.
Gary Renfrow, president of Alden Enterprises, said, “Sand Dunes Beach Services was chosen because of its excellent experience and performance in providing outstanding beach concession services at both the county-owned St. Pete Beach Access Park and Madeira Beach Access Park.”
“We’re extremely pleased to provide our professional beach services to the city of Madeira Beach, and the Alden Suites in St. Pete Beach as our first resort account,” said Ted McNamara, chief executive officer of Sand Dunes Beach Services. “We pledge similar, high-quality performance that we are also providing to the county-owned St. Pete Beach Access Park and the Madeira Beach Access Park.”
Gregory Taylor, president and chief operating officer of SDBS, and his family have operated the Treasure Island municipal beach concession since 1955.
