Canberra catering companies?

By Emily Morris - 10 November 2017 11

The best part of almost every event is the food. With that in mind, if you have an upcoming event, you’ll need to seek out a fantastic catering company that services the Canberra region.

To make things a little easier, we’ve done our research and put together this list of the top three caterers in the area. These companies know food, and can make your event one to remember.

If you have worked with any of the caterers listed below – or any other catering company in Canberra – do let us know. Share your story in the comments section.

What Makes a Fantastic Catering Company?

Believe it or not, the catering company you work with has the ability to make or break your function. With so much riding on your decision, you want to be 100 percent sure you’ve picked a top-quality caterer.

So, how can you separate the average from the fantastic? We suggest looking for catering companies with the following characteristics:

  • Incredibly delicious food. At the end of the day, it’s the taste that counts. The best catering companies in Canberra put together incredible spreads of out-of-this-world food. You want all your guests to go back for seconds.
  • Experienced. A catering company with little experience can turn your event into a total disaster. It takes years on on-the-job practice to nail timing, etiquette, and other key catering skills.
  • Polite. If you’d like your caterers to serve food to your guests, you want waiters that are polite and respectful. You want to provide the best possible experience for your guests.
  • Well equipped. The best caterers have all the necessary equipment to whip up delicious nibbles and meals. They aren’t struggling to get by with outdated tools, and make the most of new technologies to provide quality food fast.
  • Good with time management. Top notch catering depends on time management. If the caterers you’ve hired run behind schedule, it could put your whole event out of whack.

Do you agree with these characteristics? What other skills would you add?

Hudsons seconded. Have used them for several work functions and an engagement party. Always reliable, easy to deal with, reasonably priced, and the food is of good quality.

Would surely recommend http://www.hudsonscatering.com.au , They also saved our back when we had a hick up with the dates ! Also the new cafe at War Memorial is one of our fav spots .

They are excellent, I agree.

By the way, it’s hiccup. A hick up is a person visiting from the country.

Hudsons definitely. They’ve done work functions for us and a 50th party at home. Reliable, efficient, flexible, good range of foods. They’ve been around a long time. I was sad when they pulled out of running the restaurant at ANBG, it’s gone downhill since. Must try the War memorial cafe.

have used swirl catering [ swirlcatering.com.au ] for work functions on several occasions; always very satisfactory and i had initially had them recommended from a colleague who used them privately…

+1 for the War Memorial cafe. Great food and fantastic prices. Great spot for kids to run around safely. Haven’t used the catering service but if the cafe reflects quality, quantity and service, then you should be fine.
