A complete catering solution for all dietary requirements
Not only can we serve up delicious morning teas, a range of team lunches and amazing grazing spreads, we can do it for all dietary needs too!
As much as we love each menu item we offer from our catering partners, we know they're not for everyone - be it personal taste or dietary requirements.
But we want each of your guests at your catering event to eat quality food, so we make sure our caterers offer foods for those who are vegan, gluten free, dairy free, Kosher, Halal and just about any other restrictive diet you can think of.
Each of our menus list common dietary needs so you can see which meals are appropriate for your team.
"I may be based in Melbourne, but I consider the Gold Coast to be my second home. My family lives up there, and I've been a frequent visitor to the sunny stretch of Queensland's coast since the age of five.
The beach always makes me want light, fresh food and the Gold Coast has plenty of it on offer. From chilled yogurt cups and chia puddings for breakfast to crisp salads and gourmet wraps for lunch, there are loads of choices.
And, of course, being coastal you can't look past seafood! Fresh sushi made from Queensland's best fish wholesalers is always on the menu."
Frequently asked questions about Gold Coast catering
How much does catering cost on the Gold Coast?
Catering prices on the Gold Coast vary depending on where you're ordering from and what meal you're serving. Here's a rough outline of what you can expect to pay for different types of catering, per person:
Morning or afternoon tea will cost roughly $10-$15 per person. It will be on the higher end if you're serving any warmer items and on the lower end for more basic fruit and pastry-style items.
Lunch catering does tend to cost a bit more as it's a full meal. We'd recommend budgeting about $15-$20 per person. If that's a bit high for you, more basic catering, like sandwich platters, salads or pizza, is available in the $10-$15 range. It's generally specialty cuisines like Thai, Sushi or Indian, expect it to be a bit pricier.
Grazing platters and finger foods can be a very cost effective, but gourmet catering option. It could cost you as low as $10-$15, depending on the quality of meats and cheeses you'd like to serve - they can get pricy!
