Reminder—Tip lines removed from full service catering catalogs

The Tip line was removed from all full service catering catalogs on October 31, 2015. Most full service catering suppliers already include a service charge in their quotations. Some suppliers do not charge any type of service charge at all, nor do they accept tips. An order that includes service should be entered using the full service catering line.

If you are not expecting service at the event and are just ordering food, you can select menu items from the catalog. There is no need to pay a service charge or a tip in this case.

Refer to the contract pages for information on service charges specific to the supplier. Some are a percentage of the event total and others are set amounts.
