Plans A and B don't seem to workable, so perhaps a Plan C is appropriate. The key is labor costs and soon everyone will be paying $15 an hour.
Many places use private firms specializing in concessions or partner with a college food program just up the road (hint, hint).
Then there is the notion of an all vending operation. Everywhere people are buying technology to limit labor cost and preserve inventory. I am sure a company like Canteen could advice on the options available.
In some communities the whole recreational facility is privatized, leaving all the hassles to others, and eliminating all he political pressures to waive costs.
Short term is get something up and running, and then thoughtfully craft a path for the future.
