If you have a question that we haven’t been able to answer, just send us an email and we’ll get back to you very soon: firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: I have never booked a coffee cart before. What do you need to know in order to send me a quote?
A: A quote is made up of 3 components: location, duration and volume. If you tell us where the event will be held (venue name and suburb), how long you require service for and how many guests you are expecting, we can provide you with a fixed price quote.
Q: Do you offer branding opportunities?
A: Yes! We have partnerships with premium suppliers throughout Australia that design and manufacture custom printed coffee cups, coffee cart signage, apparel – the list goes on. Simply call us and we can walk you through the process.
Q: What brand of coffee and milk product do you use?
A: Our coffee is custom roasted for us by Symmetry Coffee Roasters, right here in Melbourne. We are also acutely aware of our food miles and supporting our Australian Dairy Farmers. Our full cream and skim milk is from the Warrnambool Cheese and Butter Co who are leading the fight against supermarket branded milk that hurts Australian Farmers. Our Soy Milk is premium BonSoy and we use exclusively MilkLab Almond Milk.
Q: What do you need from us in order to set up and operate for our event?
A: We need access to standard electricity and water. For larger events where there is short sharp bursts of activity, we may require additional power requirements – please call to discuss.
Q: How many hot drinks will I need for my guests?
A: Based on our years of experience, we have a simple formula for calculating volumes, dependant on the duration of the event. We suggest allowing 1.3 hot drinks per guest for an event up to 4 hours in duration, and allow up to 1.8 hot drinks per guest for an event up to 8 hours in duration.
Q: Our event is not on the ground floor and the only access available is via stairs – can you still provide a service?
A: Generally, the answer here is no – however we do have limited access equipment that does allow us to overcome some small obstacles. Just ask us for more details.
Q: Do you provide retail style services (i.e. sell to our guests)?
A: No, as exclusive corporate caterers, we do not offer retail, over the counter style sales.
