Catering orders should be placed at least seven (7) business days prior to your event. While we make every effort to accommodate last minute orders, we can not guarantee you that first choice selections can be fulfilled. We recommend when planning events for larger groups that you contact the Catering Office at least four (4) weeks in advance of your event.
Minimums are clearly listed for all menu items throughout this guide. Additional charges may be applied to groups who do not meet the required minimum. Please contact the Catering Office for information regarding charges for events not meeting these guidelines.
Your final guest count is needed three (3) business days prior to your event. Your final invoice will be based on the guaranteed guest count provided or the number of guests in attendance at the event, whichever is greater. We understand that last minute cancellations are occasionally unavoidable. We will work with you to minimize your charges, but you will be responsible for any costs incurred by the Catering Department until the time of cancellation.
Orders are delivered 30 minutes prior to your event unless otherwise noted. Complimentary delivery service is provided for all orders meeting our $50 food and beverage minimum. Orders not meeting this minimum will be charged a $20 delivery fee. Off-campus deliveries will incur a $50 delivery charge for all orders.
Wait staff is required for some events, with an initial charge of $94 and an hourly rate of $23.50 with a four hour minimum. Events requiring extensive setup and/or breakdown may incur additional charges. To ensure the smooth operation of your event, appropriate staffing will be arranged by the Catering Department.
Our general guidelines for staffing are as follows:
Bar Service: 1 Bartender per 75 guests
Served Meals: 1 Wait Staff per 20 guests
Buffet Meals: 1 Wait Staff per 30 guests
Large events that require food or beverage refresh will be subject to labor charges.
Trained and experienced staff must be present at each event to manage the service of alcohol in accordance with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts liquor laws. Berklee College Catering will determine the appropriate number of bartenders to service your event.
Compostable service ware is included in all menu items. China and linen can be added instead of upscale disposable service ware for an additional cost. Please contact the Catering Office for more information.
