Terms and Conditions
can be placed by email, over the phone or via our website. All orders are confirmed by return email. Please note that your order is not confirmed until you receive an email with an attached Appetite Catering Order Confirmation (online orders included). In the case that you do not receive an order confirmation, please contact our office to ensure that your order has been received.
All orders must be reviewed by the customer. If no changes are requested then all details of the Appetite Catering Order Confirmation are assumed as correct.
All orders need to be placed by 3.00pm the business day prior. We will do our best to fulfil orders
placed after the deadline (including same day orders), however we cannot guarantee 100% compliance. If you have a late order, please call us to discuss how we can best meet your request.
Alterations to orders and cancellations must also be placed by the 3.00pm deadline. Cancellation charges will apply when your catering requirements have been confirmed in writing via our Appetite Catering Order Confirmation and where costs have been incurred in regards to food, labour or other services, at the discretion of the Manager.
We do not take cancellations outside our office hours or on the day of delivery.
We offer free delivery within a 5km radius of the Melbourne for catering orders of $65 or more. Orders for less than $65 or deliveries outside the 5km radius may attract a $50+gst delivery fee. Each case is determined individually so please contact our office to discuss.
Our hours of delivery are 7.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday. We can deliver outside these hours upon arrangement (in some cases a delivery surcharge may be applicable). Weekend orders will be considered upon request and will incur a surcharge. This surcharge will be determined upon labour required.
The delivery time recorded on your order confirmation is when we will attempt to deliver your order (our arrival time). If circumstances beyond our control, such as traffic congestion, cause a delay and there is a chance we may not meet the delivery time, we will make every attempt to contact you to advise of the delay.
PLATTERS AND EQUIPMENT
We have three platter options:
- high grade disposable – this is our standard platter option. Food is presented on sturdy, high-gloss white recyclable cardboard platters. Platters do not need to be returned and there is a $1.00+gst surcharge per platter.
- melamine high-grade plastic platters. These platters need to be returned to Appetite and there is a $30.00+gst replacement fee for any lost platters.
- milkboard cake-tray – these platters do not need to be returned and there is no charge.
All orders come with napkins.
Appetite can supply disposable plates, cutlery, etc. and the customer will be charged accordingly. Please include them in your order.
Appetite can supply crockery, cutlery, glassware and serving utensils. Details can be found under the “equipment” heading on our website. Please include them in your order.
All sandwich platters come with 25% vegetarian unless otherwise requested. If you wish the vegetarian component to be plattered separately, we must be advised.
We cater for a large range of dietary restrictions. If you are unsure which items to order, please contact our office as we are only too happy to discuss this with you.
While some products may not contain common allergens such as nuts or wheat, we cannot claim that any item is 100% free of any trace elements.
