General Information
Please read the following information carefully before placing any orders.
Should any additional fees be applied, they will be specified in final billing.
Room Bookings
It is essential that you coordinate your booking of rooms with Conference Services.
Please contact their office to make all arrangements.
Special Diets
We are pleased to offer meal selections to those with special diets or allergies. Please inform us
of any dietary requirements at the time of booking, and we will do our best to accommodate.
Dining Services requires at least five (5) working days’ notice in order to prepare for your
function and ensure the availability of food items. We understand that last minute meetings do
occur and, given adequate notice, we can guarantee proper attention to detail for any late orders.
However, orders placed with less than 48 hours notice require special handling and increased costs.
As a result, any catering request submitted with less than forty-eight (48) hours notice will be
subject to a 20% surcharge, or a flat charge of $35.00, whichever is higher. We apologize for any
inconvenience this may cause.
Final guaranteed guest count is required forty-eight (48) hours prior to your event. You will be
responsible for the full cost of the guaranteed number or the actual number, whichever is greater.
A budgeted figure will assist us in organizing your event.
Notice of cancellations is required forty-eight (48) hours in advance. Catering requests cancelled
within 48 hours of the event will be invoiced for the guaranteed number of guests.
Service Periods
Unless otherwise specified, all meals and functions are planned for a maximum of two (2) hours.
Wait staff is available for any event at a rate of $30.00 per hour.
External and Off-Site Catering
External events are subject to a $20.00 minimum order for all off-site catering. An additional 20%
will be added to all external events with less than 25 people.
Linens and skirting used on any food table are part of the presentation and therefore complementary. If you
require additional table linens for your catered event, or if you would like to rent linens from us for your own
special event, the following price structure applies:
Tablecloth-$3.00 each
Napkin-$.35 each
Skirting-$16.00 each piece
Basic tablecloths and napkins are available in a variety of sizes and colors. In addition to a limited amount of
navy skirting, rented skirting is available in white or ivory only. Please include linen requests in your initial
booking and allow 10-day lead time to ensure the availability of your selections. Specialty linens are also
available, subject to additional cost and particular lead time requirements. Our staff is available to dress any
event catered by Metz. Please make arrangements with us to pick up and drop off any linens rented for
personal events when your order is placed.
Additional Information
Pricing and hours of operation are available any day of the week. However, prices quoted in this catering
guide are for regular operating hours (Monday through Friday). Hours, as well as prices, are subject to
change by the University Administration without notice. Guide pricing is per person unless otherwise noted.
Any unused food items, decorations or flowers provided by Metz Culinary Management are the property of
the catering department. Due to safety concerns and health department requirements, we cannot allow
unused food product to be redistributed. No credit will be given for left over food or product. The catering
department reserves the right to bill for any small wares missing from an event.
Any use of kitchen equipment outside of scheduled, catered events is subject to management approval. Please
make arrangements prior to your event to pick up and drop off any borrowed equipment to KOA Dining Hall.
