How does it all work?
We offer our services in three formats;
Full catering staff service: This is our most popular option where the entire function is managed for you. Staff will come into the venue with the foods of your menu choice, cook and present them. The waiters will then serve to your guests.
Delivered Hot: Our second most popular option sees us cook your entire menu for you at our commercial kitchen, and transport the foods to you hot and ready to serve! We have multiple site locations so we can cater for anywhere in Melbourne metropolitan area (ie: from Phillip Island to Geelong and beyond!) and have special technology inside our vans that allows us to keep your foods hot and crispy throughout transportation. Using GPS locations and advanced delivery scheduled information, your order will be priority delivered as the only order in that van for the delivery run, guaranteeing you an on-time delivery!
Delivered Cold: This is where we deliver the foods to you directly, on the day of the function, and you are free to cook the foods as you go, a great cost saver.
How many staff will I need?
This depends upon a few factors; amount of guests, style of menu, technicality of the function, and if you require bar service. Our trained function co-ordinators can recommend the appropriate amount of staff required. Our individual rates are as follows;
Supervisors – $192 ($48 per hour) These are the staff members in charge of the entire staff and function.
Waiter / Bar Staff – $180 ($45 per hour) These are the subsidiary staff that are under the supervisors and are serving to the guests.
what if i need to cancel my booking?
Unfortunately cancellation is sometimes required, be it for weather, poor attendance or other personal factors. Our cancellation policy is a full refund of your deposit if more than 7 days notice is given. If less than 7 days notice is given, your deposit is forfeited. We can however reschedule your function to another date, and your deposit will be put towards the new date.
