FOOD AND BEVERAGE

Whether you are planning a formal sit-down meal, a buffet, or a reception, the Dayspring Bank Event Center offers the perfect setting for your next event. Our list of approved caterers and bar vendors can help you plan a menu and deliver a meal that is a perfect compliment to your event.

CATERING

Guests of the Dayspring Bank Event Center are required to select a caterer from the Preferred Caterer List. All of the caterers on the current list have been interviewed and checked to ensure they are adequately licensed, provide a wide variety of menu items, and have a commitment to providing the best service possible.

Any event that utilizes an approved caterer will have access to the catering kitchen. This access includes access to the ice machine and commercial dishwasher, allowing your event to use on-site table service at no additional charge. The catering kitchen is equipped with two refrigerators/freezers, oven, microwave, table service, coffee pot, serving equipment, etc.

Catering exceptions may be made for smaller events such as birthdays, graduations, reunions, etc. upon approval by Center staff. Events not utilizing an approved caterer may rent the catering kitchen on a first-come, first-available basis. Preference for use of that space will be given to events using a caterer. Individuals not utilizing a caterer will not have access to the dishwasher and will be required to use disposable plates, cups, flatware, etc.
