Sales Tax & SErvice charge

  • All food, beverage, and catering services are subject to a 20% service charge and 8.25% sales tax.
  • Service charge and sales tax are subject to change without notice.
  • Service charge is taxable in the state of Texas.
  • Texas Sales and Use Tax Exemption Certification must be on file prior to the event, if applicable.

Beverages

Plano Event Center holds the exclusive liquor license from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission; therefore, all alcohol must be purchased and served through Plano Event Center catering services.

Guarantees

An estimated number of guests will be used when planning your initial catering order. A minimum guarantee of the number of guests must be received no later than 5 days in advance of your event. This guarantee may not be reduced. Catering services will prepare vegetarian, gluten-free, or vegan meals with advance notice upon request. Additions or changes made to the catering order after the guarantee is confirmed will incur additional charges. For buffets and plated meals, dining tables are set for the amount of attendees guaranteed for food and beverage.

Table Standards

Our standard banquet service is planned for round tables of ten. All other service options, such as round tables of eight or less, require an increase of service personnel which could result in an additional fee.
Lap-length table cloths and cloth napkins will be provided with all meal functions at no additional charge. Skirted tables will be provided at no charge for all buffets or food service. For buffet meals, our standard banquet service is rolled flatware placed at each seat and preset iced tea and water with a coffee station. For any additional services, please ask your catering representative.
