A select committee, whose members spanned various departments across the campus and the auxiliaries, completed a competitive solicitation for a variety of Catering Partners who provide Catering Services suited for the needs of the University. The criteria in selecting these partners included a range of service offerings, cuisine, and business models.
The committee read proposals and attended presentations by a number of interested vendors. The service providers who have been selected to be on our Approved Catering Partners include Brother's Signature Catering & Events, Café Merlot, Hunter Steakhouse, Mr. Taco, Panera Bread, Red Tail Catering, and Sodexo. For your catering needs on campus, these caterers offer a variety of services from small breakfast menus to large formal events.
In addition to catering providers, we have contracted with two full-service beverage companies, Event Beverage Solutions (EBS) and Bella Beverage Catering. EBS and Bella Beverage Catering are available to assist you on the day of your event.
All of the partners are committed to providing you, your staff and your guests the best experience for your event. They are prepared to work with you and deliver services within your budget. Please visit their websites, which have been provided for you on our website here.
You may use your ProCard for all catering payments.
*Pre-packaged food items that are not catered are allowed and do not need to be purchased from one of the approved caterers. This includes restaurants and chains as long as they are not delivered to the campus.
