Food and Beverage

Do you require a deposit on food and beverage?

A food and beverage deposit is due (3) business days prior to the event. Payment can be made by corporate or certified check, cash or credit card. Our "make a payment" option on the homepage of our website offers a convenient and secure method of making your credit card payment online.  Notice: Effective July 1st,  if paying by credit card, a 3.5% processing fee will be added to the invoice.  To pay by check, please make the check payable to The Lansing Center and mail it to: Attn: Accounts Receivable, 333 E.

When is the final food count due?

The guaranteed meal counts and break item amounts are required by 3:00pm (5) business days prior to the function date and will be the minimum quantity used for billing. Please provide regular, vegetarian/vegan, and special dietary meals at this time. No decreases to guaranteed counts can be accepted. Increases to meal counts made within (3) business days of an event may result in a 20% surcharge and are subject to product availability for the additional meals.

Can we take leftover food or beverages home with us?

Due to liability issues and food safety concerns for our guests, all food and beverage is to be consumed on the premises. Leftover food that meets safety parameters to be redistributed will be donated to Greater Lansing Food Bank’s Food Movers. This program uses their refrigerated trucks and trained personnel to donate safe food product to area missions and churches that serve the less fortunate. Please keep in mind that all alcohol must be consumed on our premises.

Can we request a special brand of liquor/wine?

Depending on the requested product and season, we are often able to custom order specialty alcohol items such as craft beers, specialty liquors, and seasonal wines. These items are typically considered special orders and are not subject to cancellation, refunds or removal from premises. Due to availability and the ordering process, please have your selections ready at least (30) days prior so that we may ensure delivery for your event.
