University Catering Ideas

When it comes to school catering, you have plenty of options for the kind of food you offer your guests and how it’s served. Depending on the event you’re planning, you can consider the following catering ideas: 

Food Stations

Food stations are an excellent option for school events. They allow students and other guests to choose their food and preferred portions. For instance, you can have designated stations for sliders where guests can build their own burgers using delicious sides. A breakfast station could also work well for conferences or gatherings in the morning. 


Buffets also provide guests with the ability to choose what they eat and allow you to offer many options that can suit everyone’s preferences. You can serve themed buffets like our Italian Affair or Southern buffet. We also have a sporting event buffet, which is ideal for game days. 

Sit-Down Catering

Sit-down dining can be an excellent option for more formal events like a university dinner. You can select one of our menus or customize it to suit your occasion, and our trained staff will serve the plates of delicious food to your guests.
