Museum-Approved Caterers

In July 2016, the University of Florida created an Approved Caterer program to ensure various regulations, policies, procedures and best practices are followed in order to provide a safe and responsible dining experience on campus. To protect the Florida Museum's collections, exhibits and clients, however, the Museum only works with the following caterers from the UF list who have demonstrated respect and agreed to adhere to our special event policies.

You must verify your caterer is on the Museum's list of approved caterers before contracting with them. Please also ensure your caterer is properly permitted for alcohol sales if you will have a cash bar or if your event provides alcohol and requires paid entry.
