Launched in 2012, “Jamaica Revealed” aims to diversify and improve the retail mix in downtown Jamaica through addressing the unmet dining demand of the 260,000+ consumers who use Downtown Jamaica on a daily basis. Jamaica Revealed takes place on annual basis and brings business operators and site selection specialists together with representatives of available commercial space to the area. Attendees get exclusive information on what makes downtown Jamaica a guaranteed return on investment for retail operators and showcases private on-and-off-market commercial space available in downtown Jamaica.
The BID welcomes business owners within every restaurant category, including sit down restaurants, chain franchises, and independent eateries to attend these events. This is a unique opportunity for owners and retailers to see the huge dining potential in downtown Jamaica. With over a quarter million visitors and only two dining options, there is tremendous opportunity for investors.
Our most recent Jamaica Revealed event took place on Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at the Jamaica Performing Arts Center in Jamaica, NY and included a showcase of food operators and their specialties through a tasting. Several Jamaica based restaurants were among those showcased.
The BID has been investigating ways to expand and enliven the nightlife in downtown Jamaica. As a result, increased dining options are an integral part of nighttime expansion. Partners for Jamaica Revealed include The Sutphin Blvd BID, Jamaica Center BID, 165th St. MIA, Greater Jamaica Development Corporation, Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning and the NYC Business Solutions Center.
