Important 2020-21 Catering Update

Since our return to campus in Fall 2020, KSU Catering has experienced a significant decline in business due to COVID-19. As a result, KSU Catering has reduced the scope of service for the remainder of the 2020-21 academic year.

Each catering request will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. If KSU Catering is unable to fulfill your request, you will be given a list of suggested external caterers or you can opt to initiate the review and approval process for a caterer of your choosing.

We are aware of the impact this will have on the campus community, and we will make every effort to help find you comparable service from another vendor. Campus Services, in consultation with the Department of Event and Venue Management, is determining a plan for catering services beyond this academic year. 

Catering is defined as food service that meets the following conditions:

  • The food to be served is prepared and transported by a licensed restaurant, caterer or other food service provider.
  • The food requires set up and/or on‐site service (such as chafers, Sterno or other heat source, banquet attendants, servers, etc.) or any food that requires temperature maintenance.

Catering does not include food and beverages that do not require the maintenance of a serving temperature, such as chips, crackers, nuts, cookies, special occasion cakes, bagels and donuts.

To begin planning your event, please complete the Catering Request Form. We kindly ask that events be booked two weeks in advanced. Final details of menus and services must be finalized at least seven business days prior to the event. If you have any questions, please email or call 470-578-7715 and we will make every possible effort to reply within one business day.
