Enjoy zero-stress corporate BBQ catering
From a chef to man the grill, to decorations and fun games, let our seasoned event managers help you turn your next corporate event into a BBQ to remember. After all, we want you to relax, mingle with your guests and enjoy the party!
We can help with gourmet BBQ catering packages, alcohol and sodas, sides including salads and cheese boards... and just about any other menu item you can think of.
We cater for BBQs of all shapes, sizes and tastes
Just because you're having a barbecue, doesn't mean it's just a whole lot of meat on a grill - and we know you don't make friends with salad! It's super easy to cater for dietary restrictions at a corporate BBQ.
Nowadays you can get some pretty tasty vegetarian and vegan burgers and sausages, not to mention how delicious grilled vegetables like eggplant, onions and corn can taste when you throw them onto a BBQ.
We don't just provide food either; our event services include equipment hire, cutlery, crockery, wait staff or a chef, entertainment, decorations, alcohol delivery and more. Plus enjoy the convenience of a single invoice for your office BBQ event. (Your accounts department will love you!)

My go-to: The classic Aussie BBQ
"If I'm having a get together with family or friends, it always has to be a barbeque. So why not do the same with your colleagues?
For me, the menu was always steak and snags, with onion of course, bathed in tomato sauce and a basic side salad with iceberg lettuce, cubed cheddar cheese, carrot, cucumber. French or Italian dressing straight from a bottle would alwyas be drizzled on top. It was always someone's job to bring the potato bake!
A trend that has now fallen in my lap as I attend dinners & bbqs. For starters there would be carrot sticks, celery, salads and biscuits to dip into French onion dip or an iconic Ccb loaf dip."
How much BBQ food do you need to cater per person?
We'd recommend one main meat item per person - so a steak or burger. The same would apply for plant-based meal items: one patty per person.
It's always a good idea to have some extra smaller items, like lamb cutlets, sausages or grilled skewers on hand for those with larger appetites. Of course, these can make great meals on their own. If that's your plan, aim for two to three smaller items per person.
Do you need to supply the BBQ?
Generally, yes, unless you're ordering pre-cooked food or if you're hiring a food truck as those come with cooking facilities onboard.
Is the price of a chef included?
Unfortunately not. If you're looking for. someone to cook the food fresh for you at your event, you will need to hire them for a few hours. It's usually offered by the same catering company supplying the food, but if it's not, we can help you out with a cook. (And include it all on one, easy, consolidated bill!)
