Dear Patron

We welcome you to Ferris State University Catering Service. It is our goal to please you and to assist in making your event a success. We encourage you to customize your order to fit your needs. We have many personal recipes to chose from that may not be listed on our menu page. 


Call the Catering office at (231) 591-2605 or (231) 591-3685 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday to make food arrangements. 

Please provide the start and ending time, date place and estimated number of guests attending the function. Provide your name, telephone number, department and budget number when applicable. 

In the event of a cancellation, at least a two week notice is required. Failure to do so will result in a $25.00 cancellation fee. 

The guaranteed number of guests must be received by the Catering Office one week prior to your function.

Accepted methods of payment include cash, check, credit card, or budget number. If your event is billed to a Ferris State University FOAP number your account will be billed directly at the end of the month.

All functions must be paid in full one week prior to the scheduled function.


With the exception of a wedding cake, no food may be brought into or removed from the University Center. The State of Michigan Food, Health and Safety Regulations mandate this prohibition. A fee will be charged to the booking party for violation of this policy. The booking party will be billed additional charges if items provided by catering services are missing. (i.e. trays, beverage containers, centerpieces, etc.)

For optimal quality and safety, food is displayed for a maximum of 90 minutes.
