About Us

Our Service

From the moment you place your order until your last bite, Corp Catering ensures that catering a meeting, coffee mingle or lecture is effortless. Our customers are more than just an invoice to us, and we take pride in being able to serve the Georgetown University community in such a unique way.

When you choose Corp Catering, you are not only receiving a great product; you are also supporting our community, as a percentage of our profits go directly back to Georgetown through The Corp’s wide-reaching service and philanthropic initiatives.

Corp Catering is perfect for breakfast or lunch meetings, group project work sessions, and mid-afternoon snacks. We value orders large and small, from delivering birthday cakes to New South dorm rooms to catering large scale conferences like GAAP Weekend. We can make a delivery any day of the week (including weekends), and are always striving to make last minute orders possible so that our customers feel comfortable reaching out to us when they are in a pinch.

How do I place an order at thecorp.org/pages/catering?

At least 48 hours in advance of your event, browse the Corp Catering website and add the items that you would like to purchase to your cart, then proceed to check-out, enter your delivery information, payment info, and any additional notes for our staff (Ex: Please use the side door!). You can pay with credit card, GU Cost Center ID, or CPC Grant No. Once you’ve completed checkout, you will receive an “Order Pending” notification to your email. A member of our staff will review the order and send you a confirmation email if we can accept the order.

Where does Corp Catering deliver?

We deliver to any location within Georgetown University’s Main and Medical-Dental campuses. If you have questions about delivery to a specific location, please feel free to contact us.

Why is there a delivery fee on my order?

We add an automatic $15 delivery fee to every order to compensate for the extra wages required for delivery. The fee can be waived if you prefer to pick up your own order from our kitchen facility in the Healey Family Student Center.

What do I do if I have multiple delivery times and/or dates?

Please create a separate order and complete checkout for each delivery that you would like.

Do I need a personalized account to order from Corp Catering?

No, you can always checkout as a guest from the Corp Catering website. Customers with a Georgetown NetID can create an account to save and revisit previous orders and invoices. This is most convenient for repeat or frequent customers.

How do I get in touch with the Corp Catering staff?

For additional inquiries, contact the Director, Isbel Deleon, at dir.catering@thecorp.org. Although we are full-time undergraduate students, we will respond to your message as soon as possible.

How much advance notice does Corp Catering need for my last-minute order?

We require 48 hours notice to guarantee delivery of any order. Orders placed with less notice will be accepted on a case by case basis. You should not consider your order accepted until you receive a personalized note from one of our staff members informing you of confirmation.

Are supplies included in my Corp Catering order?

Yes, all necessary supplies including plates, napkins, utensils, cups, and linens are included with every order.

What forms of payment does Corp Catering accept?

Corp Catering accepts payment through credit card and GU Cost Center ID on our website. If you were awarded a Corp Philanthropy Committee grant you can choose that option at check-out and enter your grant number to apply the award to your order. If you need to pay by check, contact us at catering@thecorp.org to discuss specifics.

Why is a tax showing up in my order total?

As you are browsing and shopping a tax will show up in your cart to help approximate the total. However, if you choose the Cost Center payment method the tax will disappear before the order is charged. Tax is automatically applied to credit card orders, but if you are a tax-exempt customer paying with a credit card you can send an email to catering@thecorp.org with your exemption information and we will refund the full tax to your card.

Do you have vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options?

Yes, yes, and yes! If you have any questions about allergens or product offerings please contact our staff at catering@thecorp.org in advance of your order.

If I need to cancel my order, can I get a full refund?

Yes, as long as you let us know two full business days in advance of your delivery date, we'd be happy to refund the full amount of your order. After that point, we will have already purchased the supplies for your delivery and may not be able to refund the full amount
