Pricing
Menu item and prices are effective July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016.  Prices may change due to market fluctuation.

Bookings
We must have a guarantee by 1:00 p.m. at least 5 business days prior to the event (not including the day of the event).  We will accept an increase in your guarantee up to 3 working days prior to the event with the exception that we may not be able to increase the quantity of every menu item, but we will serve a substitution.  You will be responsible for 100% of your guarantee or actual number of guests served; whichever is greater.  If a guarantee is not provided, your last estimate becomes your guarantee.   The guarantee is a firm commitment by the client and will be strictly enforced.  We will require 2 weeks prior notice with the menu, as well as 2 weeks prior notice with an educated guess for a count.  We will require 2 weeks’ notice with the serving time; if the serving time changes, additional charges may occur.

Exemptions
All food and beverages served on NIACC’s campus will be provided by NIACC Food Service unless an exemption has been granted.  This is a per event process.

The process for catering exemption is as follows:

  1. Client contacts NIACC’s Event Manager.
  2. Food Service will inform the Event Manager as promptly as possible if unable to do the catering event.
  3. A catering exemption form with the policies is forwarded to and signed by the client and then given to the Food Service Director to approve/deny.
  4. After approval/denial, the Event Manager will send a copy to the client.
  5. Proper documentation from the approved caterer must be approved by the Food Service Director and be on file 14 business days prior to event-if not using Hy-Vee East or Hy Vee West, which are approved caterers.

Cancellations
A cancellation charge of 40% of the total bill will be assessed for any function that is cancelled within 48 hours of the scheduled event.  The cancellation fee covers expenses incurred in ordering perishable food items and labor that has already been scheduled.  Special ordered items or other expenses that are unable to be cancelled will be charged.

In the event that the performance of this contract is subject to conditions beyond our control; i.e., acts of God, war, fire, disaster, weather (tornado or blizzard), or any other emergency that would make it impossible to provide service for you, this contract may be terminated without penalty to either party and a written notice of such incident will be recorded.  If campus is closed due to weather conditions, Food Service is not available.
