Catering

At The Power Center, we provide full service event and catering services. Our facility not only hosts more than 20,000 square feet of meeting space, but it is crowned with an immaculate Grand Ballroom. The Power Center offers a first- class professional staff who are waiting for your call to take those first steps in planning your wedding, meeting or social event.

Our staff are well-trained experts in shaping your event goals and objectives with you; assisting with event planning; consulting on establishing a realistic budget; aiding you in identifying the needs for any additional outside vendors; and pinpointing all of your “must-haves” as you leverage in your wants. Our catering specialists and Executive Chef welcome the opportunity to customize a menu to meet your specific tastes or event theme.

Not a natural planner? The sales and catering team at The Power Center welcome your invitation to assist in shaping your next event. Once you select The Power Center, you and your dedicated sales representative can discuss your ideas and brainstorm together. You will be provided with a preliminary agenda and outlines complete with a tentative budget to serve as your guide.

Printed menus are available as a general guideline. Our catering specialists and Chef welcome the opportunity to customize a menu to meet your specific taste or event theme. Because our food is prepared fresh, the Chef reserves the right to make slight substitutions in the unlikely event that an ingredient or item is out of season or unavailable. Also, note that due to market fluctuations, all menu items are subject to change. Substitutions may be made for dietary and/or religious purposes.

The Power Center is responsible for all catering of food and beverage. Food and beverages may not be removed from the premises. No outside caterer can be engaged for events held here. Wedding cakes and cakes are the only exception. There will be an additional fee to cut and serve cakes.

EVENT TIPS

Tip 1
Send kids home with fun, thoughtful goodies. For a pirate theme, think eye patches, bandanas, pirate hats and hooks. For a punky princess theme, offer sequined hair bands, neon accessories and fun sunglasses.

Tip 2
No matter the type of event you’re planning, you need to map out a strategy. What’s the goal of your event? Are you introducing a new product or service to customers? Running a demo for analysts or prospects?
Whether your end goal is to get in front of key influencers or present before a group of executives, you’ll want to whiteboard a strategy. Look at your ideal audience, what message will resonate with them and how you are going to measure results. Remember, you’ll have no clue whether your event was a bust or boon unless you have the right metrics.

Tip 3
When planning a meeting keep in mind the things attendees hate: waiting in line, jam-packed schedules, PowerPoint, being talked at by speakers, bad food, misspelled name badges, bad signage, poor e-mail marketing, websites with no contact info and having to pay for Wi-Fi.

Tip 4
Dessert is a good place to go for the wow factor. Face it, attendees can not like the salad, find the meal just OK, but if you wow them with the dessert, they’ll remember the whole meal as being fantastic.

Tip 5
Request that speakers send you a list of six people you can call for a personal phone reference. When they give you the list, be sure to call the last three on the list. This will ensure that you are getting a true assessment, since most people will list the best references first.
