We're opening a local sweet, treats, and eats kiosk at the National Harbor!
The National Harbor has invited operation:eatery to concept, design, and operate an exclusive Pop-Up Kiosk to serve the thousands of hungry tourists visiting the East Pier of the National Harbor for Holiday Activations. An average of 5,000 daily visitors (12,000 on special events) will come to this celebrated DC destination to visit ICE at the Gaylord Hotel, the Ice Skating Rink, fire pit, and carousel. Other attractions include the 20-foot Christmas Tree, fireworks, carolers, and harbor light show.
Our goal is to vend locally made name-brand hot/cold beverages along with sweet and savory treats. Specifically, we are raising funds for the following expenses:
We believe that this endeavor will help our company to grow into larger operational projects, nurture the local maker economy, and lay a foundation for greater opportunities for our clients and ourselves. In addition, this Holiday Pop-Up Kiosk will create a proof-of-concept for future activations and services that could be provided by operation:eatery.

We couldn’t be more excited about giving more D.C. local businesses the chance to shine. We’re planning an oyster roast on Jan. 18th, and we’d love to invite you and your friends too. We're partnering with Dragon Creek Aqua Farm for oysters and a local brewery or two– stay tuned for updates as we get closer to opening!
