Is Mayor Bloomberg Playing With Fire Over the $126M Snapple Deal?
Is Mayor Bloomberg Playing with Fire over the $126 million Snapple Deal? If indeed there was no competitive bidding process so that other beverage companies could compete for the contract, why wont the Mayor allow the people of New York City to see whether Snapple is providing the best deal? Is there something to hide about this deal?
The city's Franchise and Concession Review Committee voted 4-2 to approve a $126 million contract granting Snapple exclusive citywide vending machine rights despite testimony from losing bidders that the selection process was unfair and tainted.
