The Raider Café is operated by Joseph "Papa Joe" and Merry Kartch who enjoy serving all your food service needs. Our goal is to provide excellent service and top quality, nutritious foods at affordable prices. Food is prepared hot, fresh, and fast. You are sure to find our wide variety of menu items inviting. If you have a specific diet or a question, please let us know. We are excited to be at Roane State on the Main Campus and look forward to meeting you.
At the Roane State Community College’s Main Campus, the food service department offers full service catering for students, departments, staff and private individuals as well as Roane State sponsored and non-College organizations on the Roane County Campus.
We are always willing to work with you to plan your special events. Please browse the following information containing policies and current price information or contact our staff to help you choose specific menus to suit your individual needs.
Food service offers different styles of breaks. If you are looking for an economical way to have coffee or soda, our pick-up service is designed to save you money by picking the items up at the cafeteria kitchen.
If you are looking for a more formal presentation, or simply don’t desire to pick up the order yourself, use our delivery service and set up option. If we deliver, our set up will include insulated beverage servers, appropriate table linens and all the items necessary to insure that your break or reception is “no-mess, no-fuss” for you. You can come by our cafeteria and fill out the order form, or soon to come, you can access the form through our campus website. Place your request as far in advance as possible.
To ensure that we are ordering the proper amount of food, beverages, and supplies for your event, a guaranteed attendance count must be submitted no later than three business days prior to the event. The guaranteed number is not subject to reduction and will be used for billing purposes. It is our policy to bill for the actual attendance of the event or the guaranteed number, whichever is greater.
Papa Joe’s Catering requires an accurate guest count a full three business days prior to the event, and will provide service and food only for this guaranteed number.
Changes made to the guest count after the three-day period will be permitted at the sole discretion of the Papa Joe’s Catering manager.
Fresh floral arrangements are provided for most events at an additional cost. When appropriate, linen is included with served meals and buffets. With adequate notice, specialty linens are available for an extra charge.
All event cancellations must be made at least one day prior to the event, and are subject to a 50% cancellation fee. Events cancelled the day of the event will be billed in full to the client.
