We have been developing several delicious and economical panned entrees and other options for buffet-style catered events. Everyone loves our Gumbo; we have made an enormous amount of it this this year alone. Of course our Red Beans & Rice, Chicken and Dumplings, and everything else is second to none. We serve one or two of these entrees in the concession cafe for certain events, so we’ve had a lot of great feedback.
Below is our catering menu.
We will gladly work with you as much as possible to fit event budgets; we have a personal vested interest in the success of all shows and meetings at BCC.
10% sales tax will be applied. For meetings/events held at the BCC, there will be an additional 15-20% Civic Center Commission on the total, depending on whether we have to use the Civic Center Kitchen.
Our food and service is not just available at the Civic Center, we will also deliver and set up to your home, office or other meeting place. Orders for 20 or fewer should be made no less than 2 days ahead of time. Larger orders should be made at least 7 days ahead of time.
