As per ENMU's contract with Sodexo, all on-campus catering services are provided by Sodexo. Knowing your approved budget is an important part of hosting any type of catered event. Use the steps below as a guide to help you avoid common event pitfalls to help your event go off without a hitch!
Steps for Successful Event Catering
- Choose your event date, location (room or venue) and know your approved budget.
- Reserve the room or venue. If this is an on-campus location, you'll need to check to make sure the room or venue you want to reserve is available for your event date and time. You can find room reservation information for specific ENMU locations detailed at Room/Facility Reservations.
At least 10-15 days in advance of your event (sooner is better!), order the food. Keep in mind Sodexo needs adequate time to order and receive specialty items that may be included in your catering order. If your event is less than 10 days away from your order date, call Sodexo to confirm they can fulfill your request. Sodexo has CaterTrax, a convenient online ordering option that can be used for most types of catering requests with the following exceptions:
- If your Sodexo Catering request involves people going through the Crossroads Cafe Dining Hall line, you'll need to call to arrange catering instead of using CaterTrax. Call 575.562.2809.
- If there are items you want to order that you don't see in the CaterTrax ordering system, contact [email protected] as soon as possible to make arrangements to special order your items.
Canceling a Catering Order
If you need to cancel your event, you must contact Sodexo at 575.562.2809 to request cancellation at least 72 hours prior to any event to avoid cancellation charges.
