(b) A caterer shall be required to derive from sales of food at catered events not less than 30% of the caterer's gross receipts from all sales of food and beverages at catered events in a 12-month period unless the caterer offers for sale, sells and serves alcoholic liquor only in counties where the qualified electors of the county:

(1) Have approved, at an election pursuant to K.S.A. 41-2646, and amendments thereto, a proposition to allow sales of alcoholic liquor by the individual drink in public places within the county without a requirement that any portion of their gross receipts be derived from the sale of food; and

(2) have not approved a proposition to prohibit such sales of alcoholic liquor in such places at a subsequent election pursuant to K.S.A. 41-2646, and amendments thereto.

(c) Each caterer shall maintain the caterer's principal place of business in a county in this state where the caterer is authorized by this section to sell alcoholic liquor by the individual drink in a public place. All records of the caterer relating to the caterer's licensed business and the caterer's license shall be kept at such place of business. The caterer's principal place of business shall be stated in the application for a caterer's license and the caterer shall notify the director of any change in its location within 10 days after such change.

(d) Except as otherwise provided herein, a caterer shall provide electronic notification to the director at least 48 hours prior to any event at which the caterer will sell alcoholic liquor by the individual drink. The director shall make the electronic notification available to local law enforcement. Notice shall consist of the time, location and the names of the contracting parties of the event. For events where alcohol is served, a licensee shall retain all documents for a period of three years for inspection by the director. The documents retained shall include agreements, receipts, employees assigned to the event and records of alcohol purchased. Notification shall not be required for weddings, funerals, events sponsored by religious institutions, or for business, industry or trade sponsored meetings, including, but not limited to, awards presentations and retirement celebrations.

(e) A caterer may rebate a portion of the caterer's receipts from the sale of alcoholic liquor at an event to the person or organization contracting with the caterer to sell alcoholic liquor at such event.
