I want to be able to bring in my own caterer. Is this allowed?
If the preferred caterers cannot accommodate a certain request, an approval can be granted on a case-by-case basis. If approved, all caterers must provide proof a catering business license and general liability insurance in order to cater the event. All outside caterers must abide by KTN Ballroom regulations and meet the necessary guidelines in order to cater the event.
Can I supply my own alcoholic beverages?
What if I want to caterer in alcohol through another caterer who is NOT within the City of Duluth?
If the caterer is not operating within the city of Duluth, the caterer must go through the Duluth Alcohol Excise Division t o file the necessary paperwork for an annual catering license and attend an alcohol handling awareness class. Note that to file for an annual catering license, the cost ranges from $100-$200. However, if your caterer already has a catering license through their jurisdiction (other than City of Duluth), then they can file for an ‘off-premises permit catering license’ for $50 per event. Note that most jurisdictions don’t issue catering licenses, so more than not, the caterer will have to file for an annual catering license, which comes with paperwork and class attendance. Paperwork necessary will be, but not limited to: anlcohol license, catering license by licensing jurisdiction and a permit fee. See Section 3-259 of the Duluth, Georgia Code of Ordinances Chapter 3 – Alcoholic Beverage Consumption, Licensing and Regulations.
Can I hire my own bartender to serve my drinks?
Bartenders must also be covered under general liability insurance as the caterers are required. Licensed bartenders must be hired through your Alcohol Beverage Licensed Caterer or you may hire one through a City of Duluth licensed caterer.
Can alcohol be sold at the event?
Alcohol can only be sold during a fundraiser event organized by a non-profit organization. Alcohol must be brought in through a licensed wholesaler or donated. See Section 3-253 of the Duluth, Georgia Code of Ordinances Chapter 3 – Alcoholic Beverage Consumption, Licensing and Regulations.
