Welcome to the Frank Erwin Center suites at the University of Texas. We at Sodexo Services are committed to serving you and your guests. Our menu selections and services have been designed to enhance each and every aspect of your overall game day experience.
Regulations and Guidelines
Suite Administrator and Authorized Account Signers
It is most important that each suite have one officially designated contact person to handle communications. This Suite Administrator should be responsible for communicating to suite guests and co-owners (if applicable). This person will be contacted regularly regarding game day information and menus and will be responsible for proper placement of orders and timely payment of all invoices. All questions from suite guests prior to events should be directed to the Suite Administrator.
Authorized Account Signers’ names will be kept on file in the suite office. They will be allowed to place food and beverage orders during the event. Their signature for all catering charges will also be accepted.
Please complete the enclosed Suite Holder Information Sheet and fax to Rebecca Mann at 512-471-0567.
Placing Orders (performancegourmet.com/ut)
Sodexo Services is proud to offer the fine catering services at the Frank Erwin Center. All of our menu selections require fresh products and extensive preparation. Advance ordering is necessary to achieve the best service, presentation, and quality for all guests. In order to guarantee our service, orders must be placed according to the following schedule:
By 4:00pm on
Tuesday for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday events
Wednesday for Monday events
Thursday for Tuesday events
Friday for Wednesday events
Monday for Thursday events
Orders received after the above deadlines must be placed from the Game Day Menu.
All orders must be placed by the Suite Administrator or an Authorized Account Signer. We are proud to offer the service of online ordering. Please place your order at performancegourmet.com/ut. Your order is sent directly to the Suites Catering Manager, and you will receive a confirmation email. For online ordering help, please contact Rebecca Mann at 512-471-2672. The website DOES NOT ACCEPT ONLINE PAYMENT.
Game Day Items
Should circumstances prohibit placement of your order according to the above deadlines, there is a selection of menu items still available to you. These Game Day items were selected because they can be prepared quickly and served to you during the event. In the suite, you will find the Game Day Menu. To order during the event, please speak to your suite attendant or call the catering office from your suite.
Any food or beverage ordered during a game by someone other than the Suite Administrator or Authorized Account Signers will require payment in person by credit card or cash.
We’ll Have Our “Usual”
We will be happy to establish a standard order for your suite. You can simply select a few of your favorite food items and we will deliver those same items to your suite for every game you attend. We can also create rotating menus to vary the selections in your suite. Just let us know your preferences and leave the rest to us. Please call Rebecca Mann at 512-471-2672 to set up a standard order for your suite.
Unless otherwise arranged, food and beverage orders are delivered to your suite one hour before tipoff. Last call for catering service will be at half time for basketball games (or one hour after start time for professional events).
A trained suite attendant will service your suite. This attendant can ensure your food order is complete and assist with any Game Day orders or special requests. Should you require a dedicated server who will assist only your suite, one may be requested. We do require a minimum of seven days notice and cannot guarantee a particular server. The cost of a dedicated server is $75 per event.
