Your event is important to us so we strive to provide you with consistent, excellent service by following these standards:
Please call 541-737-1600 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for help designing a menu for your event. Menus chosen less than 14 days in advance are subject to availability.
To provide the highest quality service, we ask that you provide a guaranteed number of guests who will be served at the event.
The guaranteed number must be finalized with our office three business days prior to the event. An earlier date will be required for groups with more than 100 guests or with special menus. Charges will be based on the guaranteed number or actual number served, whichever is greater. Any number increase within the three business days will be subject to a 10% price increase.
Due to food safety issues, all leftover foods remain the property of OSU Catering and may not be taken from the event. We make every effort to donate leftover foods to the Linn Benton Food Share.
OSU Catering cannot cater in Athletics buildings without prior approval. Please talk to our event planners for details.
In order for OSU Catering to cater your off campus event, your group must meet one of the following criteria:
Catering prices for breakfasts and lunches are based on a service time of one hour and thirty minutes. Dinners and receptions are based on two hours of service. We are happy to extend the service time for an additional charge of $20 per hour per server. The number of servers depends on the type of service required at the event and is determined by OSU Catering.
Cancellations will be accepted as late as 5 p.m. three business days prior to the event. Any cancelations received after 5 p.m. three business days before the event may be charged 80% of the contract amount. Additionally, any cancelations received after 5 p.m. two days prior to the event may be charged 100% of the contract amount.
For events scheduled at campus facilities, the minimum order is $25 plus a $15 delivery fee, Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. For events starting or ending at or later than 6 p.m. during the week the minimum order is $50 plus the $15 delivery fee. On weekends and official holidays there is a $75 minimum and a $25 delivery fee.
For events placed within three business days of the event, there will be an additional fee of 10% of the total bill charged to your order or $20, whichever is greater.
Compostable products are included with the listed menu price (please contact Campus Recycling for your composting and recycling needs at 541-737-2856).
It is the responsibility of the customer to provide serving tables. OSU Catering will provide linen tablecloths for the buffet serving tables.
If tablecloths are desired for seating tables there will be additional charges.
If the customer needs assistance in acquiring tables contact us at 541-737-1600, and one of our customer service representatives can help.
The room or facility must be unlocked 30 minutes prior to the event start time.
The replacement value for any lost or damaged equipment will be charged to the customer and will be included within the final bill.
