Food service is a part of many client events at MCL Grand, and most rentals include access to the catering kitchen if requested at the time of booking. In order to ensure a quality experience for clients and visitors, MCL Grand management has adopted the following procedures and guidelines related to food service at the facility.
The concession stand, located in the main lobby, is available for use by the client renting Performance Hall. Client can provide approved items to sell and retain the proceeds or MCL Grand can provide the items and receive 50% of the proceeds. Clients may not operate the concession stand or concession operation elsewhere in the facility without consent from MCL Grand management. Client may contract an MCL Grand approved caterer for concession sales. MCL Grand approved caterers are required for any alcohol sales from the concession stand.
The MCL Grand maintains a list of caterers who are approved to sell and serve food and drink for events. Any caterer may apply to the MCL Grand to be added to this list.
The MCL Grand maintains a list of alcohol caterers who are approved for sale and service of any alcoholic beverages and is restricted to TABC licensed alcohol vendors and TABC certified servers. If alcoholic beverages are to be sold, a valid permit from the TABC must be posted at the location. If a renter wishes to provide free alcoholic beverages, they must be served by TABC certified servers and no payment may be accepted, even in the form of a contribution or gratuity.

If alcohol is to be either sold or given away to the public, renter much show proof of liability insurance which includes alcohol liability coverage.
