FAQs about corporate catering in Canberra
How much should I budget for catering in Canberra?
We recommend setting a budget of at least $15-$20 per person for catering a proper meal. If you're just offering a morning or afternoon tea, or nibbles, you can probably get away with $12-$15 per person.
Of course, the final budget really would depend on some factors, such as:
- What type of food you're wanting to order
- Whether the food is hot or cold
- If any wait staff is required
How far in advance do I need to order catering?
Most of the time, 24-48 hours notice is plenty of notice for catering a small corporate event. The larger or more complex the order, it's best to give more time.
All of our Canberra catering suppliers note the required lead time right in our marketplace. Luckily, the shortest is just 18 hours if you do find yourself in a pinch.
Can you cater for outdoor events in Canberra?
Yes! We can cater for outdoor events in Canberra, but you'll want to make sure your venue is equiped for the food you'll want to cater. Consider a few things including:
- Will you require running water or electricity?
- If you're cooking at the location, are there any bans on BBQing?
- Are there toilet facilities nearby?
Our friendly account managers and customer care team can discuss all the logistics and requirements for outdoor events with you beforehand to ensure that we can provide a high-quality catering experience.
Which caterers have the best reviews in Canberra?
Do you offer an on-time guarantee for catering in Canberra?
