Private or nonprofit caterers – not many will cater off-premise events because they lack the expertise and equipment to do so; these organizations usually provide the hall, food, beverage, and servers for an occasion. They employ catering as a supplement to their internal financial budgets to help raise money to fund special projects o 3 advantages they have over independent caterers They have no labor costs because the labor is “donated” by members They do not pay taxes Many of them do not incur the expense of carrying any kind of liability insurance o Customer appeal – independent caterer can provide more variety, attractive presentations with china and glassware, and a higher quality of food and expertise University/college caterers – provide food and related services to the students, faculty, administrators, and guests Off-Premise Catering – accomplished exclusively by the caterer… transporting all of the food, serving products, and personnel to a location other than the building or facility where the food is prepared - Must be access to equipment needed to prepare the food - Must furnish their own refrigerated trucks or other equipment to keep food hot or cold -

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
