WHAT WE DO
From worldwide music and production tours to one off shows and providing dressing room riders, our clients are rock stars, actors and bands who have all been enticed by our delicious food, friendly and professional approach and ultra-efficient logistics.
Our holistic approach to service has seen us deliver crew and artist catering to many iconic events throughout our 40 year history These include Live 8, HM The Queen’s Golden, Diamond and Platinum Jubilee celebrations, Commonwealth Games 2022 Closing Ceremony and most recently TM King Charles III and Queen Camilla’s Coronation.
When it comes to catering on tour, we very much see ourselves as providing a home from home on the road. We’re well versed in how to prepare food for very specific taste and diets. Working all over the world with athletes and artists who are at the top of their field ensures that we’re ready to deal with literally everything and anything. We’ve cooked food for people who are committed to super strict diets to those who don’t like furry fruits!
Our purpose-built mobile kitchens arrive onsite fully equipped to prep, cook and serve food for 10-1000 guests. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the remotest of locations, we are completely self-contained and can even supply our own power and water if required.
Some of our seasonal repeats include The Chase, RuPaul’s Drag Race, BBC Proms, Tipping Point, Britain’s Got Talent, and competitions like Dancing on Ice, Masked Singer, The Wheel and Masked Dancer.
Outdoor event catering requirements are often based on the demands of the task in hand. If you’re onsite working at a festival with crew who’re working long hours, doing a physically demanding job, then they are going to want more hearty, comfort type food. Whereas artists, who’re about to perform, will want lighter healthier options. It’s all about knowing and understanding who you’re preparing the food for.
We have delivered catering on-location and to high-profile studios for numerous production companies and TV shows. We can work from an onsite kitchen OR bring along our own kitchen trucks. The feedback the team receives from our clients is excellent, with comments ranging from how fresh and delicious the food is, to the variety of dishes on display and our ability to cater for all diets and tastes.
Production teams and crew are often away from home for long periods of time, moving from venues, cities and countries every other day.
Our approach to service is holistic – delicious and nutritious food is a given – it’s comforting to see the same warm and friendly smiling faces who know they’ll find the biscuits next to the coffee machine rather than having to navigate a whole new set up every day.
We see ourselves as an extension to our clients’ teams rather than an addition.
Our ability to deliver for major international events is unrivalled, our experience, expertise, relationships and reputation for successful delivery ensure that we are often the first point of contact when it comes to event catering and hospitality services.
We have a unique ability to travel to any far-flung destination, combatting logistical and cultural challenges along the way to deliver fantastic food and service, this sets us apart from our competitors.
