UIS Food Service is the preferred caterer for campus events.  University catering is convenient but does have a limited range of items they will provide outside of the Student Union facility.  The benefits to using UIS Food Service are that the department’s C-FOP is charged directly and it supports the campus.

Preferred Caterer’s for UIS also include non-university entities (outside vendors) that serve food and/or non-alcoholic beverages at an event and typically provide food set-up, onsite layout, and clean up.  Preferred caterers are required to comply with University policy including having proper certifications, licenses and insurance.  The following caterers have a Master Catering Contract with the University and should be used exclusively.  If one of these caterers is unable to assist with your event, you must contact our department before seeking an alternate caterer.

Prices on linked menus below are subject to change. Caterer will provide current prices when contacted.
