Howard County officials signed a one-year contract with K.I.S.S. Catering yesterday to run snack shops and cafes at four county office buildings, officials said.
The Columbia business, which runs the concessions stand at Centennial Park, will take over food operations at the George Howard Building, circuit courthouse and central library, beginning Aug. 25. K.I.S.S. is expected to restore cafe service to the Glenwood library later, said Charles A. Kasky, the county's deputy chief administrative officer.
The business will replace Nixon's Farm, which left the courthouse in the spring and is expected to end service at the Howard building and central library next week, Kasky said.
