July is a month where much happens in our industry. The new financial year brings with it new budgets, tax returns and forward thinking about the second half of the year. Some even celebrate Christmas in July, a prelude to the festive season and the celebrations that go along with it. School holidays are over and parents breath a sign of relief at the idea of some relaxation and quietude.
New Website Home Page
In my never-ending quest to improve everything we do at Crave, I have re-designed the website (beginning with the homepage and will be progressing from there). The idea is to more accurately identify the Crave Catering brand with the level of food and service we provide. I felt the original site, whilst good did not convey the message of exactly what Crave can do for clients functions. The new site definitely encapsulates this perfectly. Please have a look www.cravecatering.com.au
Over the past month Crave Catering has catered some wonderful events, most notably a decadent and luxurious joint 40th birthday in Malvern. The clients’ generous budget, fabulous taste and wonderful theme (Masquerade) allowed for our creative juices to flow freely and provide a sensational function. Pictures will be posted shortly onto our gallery page for all to see. Guests were treated to cocktails on arrival served by our staff wearing masks (in line with the theme) and savored delicious canapés, substantial canapés and cones of freshly prepared salt and pepper squid (a request from the host). It’s a terrific event that stops only when the boys in blue pop in for a quick chat J)
We recently conducted a series of mini functions at our new premises to introduce the new facility to our clients (See previous newsletters) with a great response and successful result. Everyone who attended loved what they saw and tasted and most have placed orders for daily style catering as well as for private parties. My thanks goes out to all who came. If you missed out and would like to attend (private or in groups) please let us know and we will run further introduction parties.
We have toyed with the idea of running a series of cooking schools and corporate team building exercises at our new kitchen in Richmond and so far have had some very favourable responses. We are seeking further levels of interest before proceeding so if you are interested in learning some new cooking skills or would like to arrange a corporate team building session in the kitchen then please let us know so we can begin panning.
Spaces are booking quickly so if you would like us to assist we can secure places now so you don’t miss out. Fill in a quote request and we’ll contact you shortly. Let us introduce some of our venues around town that may suit your event or browse our listings on our website. Remember private functions are also a Crave specialty for any weddings, engagements, birthdays or any celebration.
At Crave Catering, we offer our services, free of charge to plan your event with you, well in advance. This also ensures your date, venue and budget can be secured and sealed. There is nothing worse than racing around trying to find a backup location or alternate date with resultant increased costs associated with last minute preparations.
