We work hard to make catering as ez as possible at ezCater. With our eyes open and ears to the ground, we watch, we listen, and we help. The result? An ever-evolving best experience for our customers, and new features to boot.
We’re thrilled to announce our new tax-exempt feature, which automates the process of setting up and receiving tax exemption on catering orders for non-profit and tax-exempt organizations. Until now, many of these organizations either set up tax exemption manually or missed out on receiving exemption because of the effort it took.
ezCater’s new feature simplifies the process, saving tax-exempt organizations time and money. Leveraging the Avalara CertCapture system, customers can upload tax exemption certificates to ezCater’s online ordering platform. The documentation is saved to the customer’s account and automatically applied to all future orders placed across our nationwide network of over 45,000 restaurants and caterers.
“Instead of continuously managing and arranging contracts with caterers, I can quickly place orders knowing I’ll get the exemption, and then can focus my time on other things.”

ezCater user Deborah Makray, who works for the University of Colorado, shared her experience with the feature saying, “The tax-exempt feature is very convenient because it eliminates all the paperwork and verifications typically required when I order catering. After setting it up, the feature really simplified how I place orders. Instead of continuously managing and arranging contracts with caterers, I can quickly place orders knowing I’ll get the exemption, and then can focus my time on other things.”
We’re excited to add this new functionality to our platform, which will save our customers even more time. Have an idea for a feature you would find insanely helpful? Leave us a note in the comments section below.
