Corporate Suite Catering for IMS Events

Ritz Charles has been catering to the private suites during race season for over 20 years. Many of our suite holders entertain celebrities, drivers, owners and even royalty. Throughout the month of May many of our suites enjoy traditional track fare; other suite holders prefer much more sophisticated options. Ritz Charles can accommodate either. We work with each client to customize the menus for each suite, and the culinary options are vast. From Turn Two to the Hulman George Suites, Ritz Charles is proud to be such an integral part of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during all major events.
