Some Testimonials from our corporate clients!

‘We have used ‘Home’ for catering at our office events several times over the last year and have always been extremely pleased with the results. The catering is of restaurant quality, in generous portions. With the expertise that Darren provides in regards to meal suggestions/dietary needs planning is made easy at great pricing per head. Darren and his team are professional, friendly and punctual and it has been a pleasure to involve them in our corporate events. We will continue to use this service as it is stress free and efficient which in turn means we can focus on our customers at important events.’

‘You know the catering is good when customers go for seconds and/or you are left with empty plates’   

Mike Kelly  |  South Island Regional Account Manager  |  Brother International (NZ) Limited

Darren recently catered for the Team ŠKODA hospitality tent at the Le Race cycling event – the poke bowls, fruit salads, and bliss balls were fantastic. We’ve had plenty of feedback from our team members raving about the catering, the poke bowls were fresh and full of flavour. We’d highly recommend Darren’s catering and wouldn’t hesitate to use him again for our events.
