We ask that all orders be placed 9 days in advance. If ordering with less than 9 days you will need to place your order on the "Red Zone Order Date" provided by our Catering department. This date is established periodically as a check point date for us to look for last minute orders. The "Red Zone Order Date" is communicated to campus via allnet alerts. All orders should be placed through CaterTrax. While we make every effort to accompany last minute orders, we cannot guarantee your first choice selections can be fulfilled.

Why have a Red Zone date? 

There are three color zones when ordering catering.

  • Green:  Means that the date is good, just place your order.
  • Yellow: This is the 9 to 14 day out from your event date. It is okay to order on the yellow dates.
  • RED: This is any order within an 8 day window.  You cannot order in this zone using the online Catertrax system.

Dining Services developed a specific date that allows you to order your "last minute request".  The Specific Red Zone date helps us gather the resources to make sure we can execute your event.

Do not place any red zone request on yellow or green dates.

Thank you for allowing us to serve the Albright Community.
