First Right of Refusal

Canteen Catering has the first right of refusal for any catered event held in any ICC Campus location. This means if Canteen Catering is available and able to provide the services you request, you must use their services. If the request is waived by Canteen Catering, the following is required of the vendor providing the service: Business License, Certificate of Insurance and Health Department Certificate. These items are due to the Events Coordinator five business days in advance of the event.
