Malone Optimized catering guide (PDF)
Our Malone Optimized catering guide has been developed exclusively for the Malone University campus. These menu's include many of the favorite items of the faculty/staff and students.
Our maximized catering menu provides a low cost option to catering group events. Each menu provides enough food for approximately 20 people. Orders cannot be split to feed less. Due to the low cost of the menus, all items must be picked up in the Hoover commons. Delivery is available for a fee.
We provide boxed lunches for athletes and other student groups traveling off campus. These meals are provided in place of the meal a student would be missing. There is no charge for students on meal plan. For students not on meal plan, there is a reasonable charge for the lunch.
AVI FOODSYSTEMS Inc., Malone Dining Services, is both pleased and proud to present our CATERING Menu Guide (PDF).
These menus are samples of our most popular and frequently requested menu items. Our menus and service are both flexible and adaptable. Should you desire to customize any of our selections offered, or would like to develop your own special menu, our catering staff would be pleased to assist you in any way possible to personalize a menu to meet your needs and desires.
It is our sincere desire that through meticulous planning and attention to the smallest of details, you will feel that you are a guest at your own event.
Event Planning and Scheduling
Event planning begins when you reserve your location on the Malone Campus. This should be done by calling Cindy Lundin at 330.471.8255 to reserve a room. Once a Campus location has been reserved, we ask that you contact our catering office at 330.471.8497 to plan the menu for your event. All menus should be finalized two weeks prior to your event.
A late booking fee will be added to any event that that is scheduled within 72 hours of the event. Your Charges are based on the guaranteed count, which needs to be given no later than 72 hours prior to the event, or should the attendance exceed the guaranteed count the actual number will be billed.
A service charge will be added to all orders that do not meet the minimum number of guests as outlined in the catering guide.
In the event of a cancellation, we require a 72 hour notice prior to the event. If a cancellation is made after the deadline your group will be responsible for all costs incurred prior to the cancellation.
The Controller's office will review all events that are charged to a university account. Money must be available in the budget line to be charged, prior to the event: otherwise the college will not authorize the event. For events that are not being billed through a Malone account, a 50% deposit will be required at the time of the initial planning meeting with the Catering Director. The remaining balance must be paid prior to the start of the event. A credit card number will be required with your authorization to bill any additional charges you may incur during the event. Additional charges incurred during the event will be charged at the end of the function.
Wait staff service is not included at receptions for the purpose of replenishing items, passing appetizers, and clearing china or other cater ware as it accumulates. Malone Dining Services will be willing to provide these services upon request at a cost of $8.50 per hour, per wait staff. There will be a minimum charge of two hours per wait staff. Additional labor charges will be incurred in cases where the event time is more than three hours from the initial serving time. Attendant serving charges are waived for the first two hours of served meals, buffets, and for complete hors d'oeuvres receptions.
All equipment provided for a non-attendant function shall be the responsibility of the contracted group. Food, beverages and serving equipment may not be removed from any event. Malone Dining Services adheres to the Pennsylvania State Health Code regarding the sanitary and responsible service of foods, and cannot accept the liability for food not properly handled when removed from a function. Therefore, food shall not be permitted to be removed from any function. Removal of serving equipment will result in replacement value being added to the billing invoice.
All prices quoted include basic linens to cover all dining tables and any buffet tables. Additional linens can be ordered to cover registration tables or any other tables that you may need for your event at a cost. Additional tables can be clothed and skirted for a cost per table. Specialty linens are also available at an additional charge. Please talk to our catering director for samples of the specialty linens.
Water Service and Beverage Refresh
We can provide pitchers of ice water and service ware on your meeting room tables or at a self service table in the back of the meeting room. This service can be provided at a cost per person. A refresh service is also available for your coffee and tea setups for a cost per person. Please notify the catering director prior to the start of your event if you would like to have your beverages refreshed.
