FAQs about Melbourne corporate catering
How much should you budget for catering in Melbourne?
Catering prices can vary depending on where you're ordering it from and what meal you're serving for your team or guests. As an estimate, here's a rough guide on what you can expect prices to work out to per person.
Morning or afternoon tea will likely cost between $10-$15 per person. It will be on the higher end if you're wanting to serve any hot items and on the lower end for the more basic fruit and pastry-style service.
Lunch catering will probably cost a bit more in comparison as it's a full meal, so we'd recommend setting a slightly higher budget of $15-$20 per person. If that's a bit tight, you can get more basic catering, like sandwich platters, salads or pizza in the $10-$15 range. However, if you'd like any specialty cuisines like Thai, Sushi or Indian, expect it to be a bit pricier.
Grazing platters and finger foods can cost you as low as $10-$15, but that's depending on the quality of meats and cheeses you'd like to serve - they can get pricy!
Is affordable catering available in Melbourne?
With dozens and dozens of options in Melbourne, we have catering that suits all budgets. Depending on what you need, you can cater your event for as little as $10 per person if you stick to the basics like salads, sandwiches and share platters.
If you have a specific budget to meet and aren't sure what you can get for that, please get in touch with our team on 1300 851 900 and they can walk you through everything.
Are there minimum order amounts in Melbourne?
Yes. Most Melbourne caterers do require a minimum amount, but it does start quite low at about $50 for a good handful of suppliers. That's about what you'd spend to cater for five people, so the changes of you covering the minimum costs are high.
Do you need to pay for delivery of corporate catering in Melbourne?
Sometimes; it depends on which caterer you order from. That said, there are more than 50 partners in our marketplace that don't charge anything for delivery of corporate catering in Melbourne. And that includes food options like Italian, Middle Eastern, salads, Mexican, Indian, Chinese, Vietnamese and plenty of traditional catering options.
My office is outside of the CBD, can I still get catering delivered?
Of course! We don't ask for your address to be nosy... Entering your address into our marketplace search will help you by only showing you the caterers that deliver to your location.
If nothing is showing up, get in touch with us. We may be able to make a special arrangement for you.
