At Crave Caterers

We’ve aspired to always deliver a truly unique and memorable experience — from start to finish. We never stop searching the local streets for the latest ingredients, colours and trends, so we can deliver our whimsical creations to you. We believe that catering is more than just food on a plate; it’s about building a relationship with you, understanding your personal style, and delivering a complete experience for you and your guests.

Integrity

We work tirelessly for our clients and never compromise. Our “can-do” attitude and an inherent drive to deliver a memorable experience, not a just a meal, is what motivates us each and every day.

Honesty

Our first priority is to exceed your expectations and develop a long- lasting relationship built on trust. In our world, there is no such thing as “it is what it is”. We hold ourselves to a higher standard, as do our  clients.

Perseverance

We put our heart and soul into delivering the best products, services and experiences possible. We’re not happy unless you are happy. Passion and passionate people drive everything we do.

Finesse

Knowledge drives us forward. Every opportunity we have to learn – about your needs, innovative culinary trends, and efficient ordering processes – increases our understanding and inspires us.

Compassion

We put our heart and soul into delivering the best products, services and experiences possible. We’re not happy unless you are happy. Passion and passionate people drive everything we do.

Taryn Charles

Founder

I grew up with the sights and smells of food all around me. From my mother’s catering company to my father’s restaurant, my culinary enthusiasm began as a young child. After gaining my business diploma, I worked in the civil trade for five years before deciding to get into the “food business”. I aspire  to lead and push the company to new heights.

Finance dePARTMENT

Creating a positive environment is one of my key goals, as it ultimately leads to success and a forward momentum. Engaging in honest conversation allows us to deliver the best to our clients. Fundamentally it’s about our clients trusting us with their money and as a result of obtaining my degree in Finance and Investment management, will assist in doing so.
