BREVARD COUNTY • KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLORIDA — NASA has awarded an early extension to its concessionaire, Delaware North, to continue operating Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, the public face to the Florida spaceport.

The extension comes as the Visitor Complex is about to mark its 50th anniversary, having first opened in August 1967.

Delaware North, a hospitality and food services company, has operated the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex since 1995.

In 2010, NASA chose to continue working with the concessionaire through a competitive bid process on a 10-year base period with options for another 10 years.

The early extension will see Delaware North continuing to run the NASA visitor complex through 2028.
