FAQs for Geelong

FAQs about Geelong catering

What are the popular dishes or cuisines offered by Geelong caterers?

Geelong caterers offer a broad range of cuisines including, but not limited to, local Australian fare, Mediterranean, and Asian. Plus, if you’re on the hunt for finger food catering in Geelong, we’ve got you covered. 

Popular dishes include mini pizzas, gourmet charcuterie platters, and extensive grazing platters.

How far in advance should I book a caterer in Geelong?

While some caterers can accommodate last-minute requests we typically recommend you book a caterer at least a few days in advance. For larger events or during special days (E.g. EOFY, Melbourne Cup and Cinco de Mayo), it's best to book even earlier to secure your desired date and menu.

How much does catering in Geelong generally cost?

The cost of catering in Geelong can vary greatly depending on the size of your event, the type of food you choose, and the level of service you require. 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-$20 per person. It will be on the higher end if you're serving any hot items and on the lower end for fruit platters and pastries.

Lunch catering does tend to cost a bit more as it's a full meal. We'd recommend budgeting about $15-$25 per person, unless you’re looking to splurge on a banquet or hiring event staff. If that's a bit high for your event, more basic catering, like sandwich platters, salads or pizza, is available in the $10-$15 range.

Grazing platters and finger foods can be a very cost-effective, but still-gourmet catering option. It could cost you as low as $10-$15 per person, depending on the quality of meats and cheeses you'd like to serve.

Do Geelong caterers provide equipment and tableware?

Many of our Geelong catering partners provide equipment and tableware as part of their services. This can range from cutlery and glassware to tables, chairs, and linens. You may also be able to order extra when selecting your meals.

What if my event location is outside of Geelong?

Some Geelong caterers may be able to cater to locations outside of Geelong. However, this may incur additional delivery or travel fees. Once you enter your address, we’ll show you all the caterers that can deliver to your location and what the costs are.

Are there any unique or standout caterers in Geelong that I should consider?

Geelong boasts a range of unique and standout caterers. Some favourites include:

  • The Common Waterfront for their build-your-own taco station
  • Out Of Thyme for their impressive grazing tables
  • Fabulous Catering" for their exceptional buffet options
  • Wilton's Cookies for a sweet ending to your event
