I am delighted to provide a reference for Sue Fleischl of the Great Catering Company.

I had been to many events at which I tasted the mouth-watering creations from The Great Catering Company and was always impressed by the beautiful form and flavour, and was thrilled to start working with them two years ago.

We have at least one special event each month, plus three selling seasons for which they cater for us. We enjoy a wonderful working relationship with Sue and her team. Her staff are reliable, thorough and very efficient.

The presentation of the food is always innovative and creative - every dish is made to look so tempting and tantalising, but most importantly it is a taste sensation! Whenever a platter is brought out at our events, it is greeted with an 'aaah' from the audience and it always returns to the kitchen bare!

Whether providing for a business meeting or a special event, The Great Catering Company's service is impeccable and I am always confident that every detail will be taken care of.

Yours faithfully,
Trelise Cooper.

It gives me great pleasure to recommend The Great Catering Company to your organisation. 

Since October 2008, I have worked directly with Susan Fleischl, owner of The Great Catering Company, and Event Managers Jennifer Ng and Angela Morgan. In that time we have held numerous weddings and private functions at Brick Bay and Great Catering Company has been our sole preferred caterer. 

As a supplier of the venue, we have been very pleased with the relationship and the private functions that have taken place at Brick Bay. 

Our venue has always been respected and well taken care of, by all of the Great Catering team. Their hire products are of very high quality. 

All communications have been prompt and efficient, making our business relationship very positive. Of course, all food by Great Catering has always been outstanding and their service has been excellent.

All of these aspects reflect on to Brick Bay and we are therefore pleased to align our business with Great Catering and look forward to working with them on many more events in the future.

I have also experienced The Great Catering Company as a client, when we engaged their services for our wedding in February 2010. Having worked with them as a supplier I was confident that their services would be of an outstanding quality. As I client I found them to be friendly, efficient and professional. Our wedding was a huge success, all our guests were blown away by the food and service and we were thrilled with the results. 

I recommend The Great Catering Company with enthusiasm, and look forward to our future work together. 

Yours sincerely, 
Anna Didsbury 
Manager, Brick Bay Wines Ltd.

Sue Fleischl and her team at The Great Catering Company have worked for us on many occasions over the past 15 years.

They have provided food, service and, more recently, hire equipment for a variety of functions – ranging from our daughter's wedding and after-party for 400 people, to many small and intimate dinner parties at our various homes.

Sue’s attention to detail is superb as is her knowledge and connections with the very best support people as in florists and party planners.

We have never had a disappointing function when Sue has looked after our requirements. The food and service has always been the very best, her staff are highly trained and very professional.

We have recommended Sue to a variety of friends and acquaintances who have all been very impressed with the high standard of all aspects of her services at all times.

Sue is a delightful person and a pleasure to work with. Her team of staff are always well presented, polite and very efficient. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sue and her Great Catering and Great Hiring companies to anyone who wanted a very high standard of all aspects of entertaining of any kind – large or small.
