Our Commitment

Mill Point Catering is rich in history on the Elon University campus. In fact, our name, Mill Point Catering, pays homage to the old train station that used to transport goods produced at the local mill back in the 1800s. That inspiration gave us not only our name, but a strong commitment to serving the community as well.

“Everything went beautifully and we were very pleased with both the service and the wonderful food. Our attendees unanimously enjoyed the appetizer selections, and commented on the high quality. I also wanted to mention and thank the servers at the event who were friendly and professional. Deanna, Kristin and Nicole are a delight to work with and helped to make the evening extra special.”

“I want to thank you for the excellent catering at this year’s Triad State of the Region. You guys are always the best and we love using you for our catering needs. We’ve always had really wonderful experiences, but this time you really outdid yourselves! Your knowledge of event planning and your professional, friendly approach made the major part of the reception a delight.”

“Our Elon parents and families always rave about exceptional variety of offerings provided by Mill Point during on-campus events. Our department enjoys working with the catering managers and appreciates their creativity when planning the menu for our events!”

Our Philosophy


Our philosophy is simple: take care of our community. We are proud to have a diverse community with equally diverse tastes and palates. No matter the request, inspiration or idea, the Mill Point Catering team is happy to craft something rich with tradition or entirely unique.

Many of our materials come from recycled content, such as napkins, straws and utensils. We also support fair trade coffee and Port City Java to help community development, health, education and environmental stewardship.

100% of our food waste is composted. All customers can help do their part by using the appropriately labeled trash bins. We send this food waste to outside composting companies.

Ask us about sustainable meats and local produce, both of which can be incorporated into your next menu upon request.
