Fabulous Finger Food Frequently Asked Questions
How many staff will I need?
This depends upon a few factors, depending upon amount of guests, style of menu, technicality of the function, and if you require bar service also. Our trained function co-ordinators will recommend the appropriate amount of staff required. Our individual rates though, are;
Supervisors - $120 ($40 per hour) These are the staff member that run the entire function and is in charge of the cooking and running of the other staff.
Waiter / Bar Staff - $105 ($35 per hour)
These are the subsidiary staff that are under the supervisors and are serving to the guests.
How does it all work?
We offer our services in three formats;
Full catering staff service
This is our most popular option where the entire function is managed for you. Staff will come in to the venue with the foods of your menu choice, cook the foods and present them, and the waiters will then serve to your guests.
Our second most popular option, where we cook your entire menu for you at our commercial kitchen, and transport the foods to you hot and ready to serve! Although we have multiple site locations where we can cater for anywhere in Melbourne metropolitan area (ie: from Phillip Island to Geelong and beyond!) we have special technology inside our vans that allows us to keep your foods hot and crispy throughout the driving time. Using GPS locations and advanced delivery scheduled information, your order will be priority delivered as the only order in that van for that delivery run, therefore you are guaranteed on time delivery!
Delivered Cold This is where we deliver the foods to you directly, on the day of the function, and you are free to cook the foods as you go, a great cost saver, or where you just want a more simple function.
