It’s the Catering That Makes the Day!
Food and in this case, the catering can add so much to the atmosphere of the race. Soggy party pies and sad sandwiches aren’t going to bring much excitement when the team gathers round to watch the race. Put your best foot forward and order delicious, fresh corporate catering for the day – you’ll be rewarded with praise for the great food.
Some of Our Favourite Melbourne Cup Catering Options:
- Drop off finger food - warm or cold menus or perhaps a bit of both
- Grazing food platters to share over the afternoon with your staff – Cheese and fruit, Mediterranean, Asian delights and lots more
- Affordable lunch packages with small sandwiches and 3 pieces of finger food
- Roast chicken lunches with soft bread rolls and yummy salads
- Sweet treats of every variety, assorted slice, Melbourne Cup themed cup cakes, group cakes for the team, chocolate dipped strawberries and more
Don’t forget to order the drinks!
Our alcohol merchants have a full range or affordably priced wine, local and imported beer, sparkling wine and soft drinks for the race. As Melbourne Cup is such a busy day for our suppliers we have a few tricks to ensure your office has cold drinks when you need them. Your alcohol and soft drinks will be delivered a few days before Melbourne Cup. On the morning of the race, large tubs will be delivered with ice to chill your drinks for the office party. View our alcohol menu.
