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?
