What do catering services include?

Professional chefs often say that the secret to a delicious meal is time, but we understand that not everyone has hours to spend in the kitchen. All that chopping, boiling, baking, and cleaning can eat up a big chunk of your schedule. Let Airtasker connect you with catering services near you so that you can get more done.

Whether you need only need cooked food delivered to your home or a full setup for corporate events, there’s a Tasker who can do it for you. Get free quotes from local catering near you when you put up a task on the platform. This makes transporting food and equipment easier and faster. Plus, a local Tasker would know the fresh ingredients available and the popular recipes in your location. Here are some types of catering that you may want to book via Airtasker:

Event catering

Special occasions, grand or intimate, always require good food. From birthday parties to weddings, turn it into a feast on a special day with the help of an experienced caterer. Airtasker also allows you to find catering packages within your budget. Make sure to indicate it right away so that Taskers also know how much you’re willing to pay and if they can accommodate that rate. This way, you can shorten the process of going through offers that do not match.

After you’ve found the right caterer, you can start searching for other suppliers you need for the event, like singers, bands, performers, and even magicians. You don’t even have to leave the site!

Appetizer catering

Let’s face it. Party guests will never forget how good or bad the food is at any cocktail party. Good food equals a good time. It’s crucial to have a great spread of finger foods and delicious appetizers made from the best ingredients. Because food can make or break any party. Hors d’oeuvres catering near you can help make your event a success. 

Dessert catering

Speaking of special events or a special day, another type of catering that has become more popular over time is dessert catering. This can complement your menu or serve as a stand-alone spread for smaller and shorter programs like bridal showers, kiddie parties, or after-office activities. Airtasker is a great place to find a baker who can create a banquet of sweets, pastries, and fruits for you. You can even request a chocolate fountain for a centerpiece!

Food truck catering

Food trucks have become trendier over the last few years because of the variety in taste and the convenience of hiring them for big venues. You can hire food truck catering near you for concerts, school fairs, informal corporate events, or even weddings. They create a relaxed and casual vibe where guests can have a good time and choose which food tickles their taste buds. It can be a trip worldwide through different cuisines, with tacos in one truck and pizza cones in another.

These are just a few of the catering services that you can find on Airtasker. Be as detailed as you want when you put up a task and watch Taskers send you offers!

Drummond VIC, Australia

23rd Feb 2024

This is a long way in advance but I need to lock in early! The date is January 4th 2025 There will be approximately 100 guests. We are open to suggestions but hoping for: - Grazing tables (chaucuterie boards)/finger food after the ceremony - some sort of substantial main meal We are very open to things like spit roast/ gourmet bbq/paella/ Thai food etc!) There is also a wood fire pizza oven that could be used. - there is a kitchen on site but it is fairly basic so the more equipment you can provide/pre-cook the better - a couple of staff to prepare/clean up We would like to keep costs affordable - ideally less than $30/head for everything. Must be willing to travel to Drummond venue (roughly 1 hour from Melbourne). Any quotes need to include travel and clean up. Due date: January 4th 2025 We will also be looking for bar staff so if your team is able to manage that swell, would make things easier!
