Allow us to introduce ourselves! Fat Cats food van and fancy catering started out of a voracious appetite for food. Cooking it, researching it, refining it and finally enjoying it. Our head chef and Top Cat Adrian has been obsessed with cooking since first helping his mum out in the kitchen as a little tucker. His obsession with food ultimately led him to create Fat Cats food van and fancy catering in 2013, a unique Melbourne-based mobile catering service.
Quickly expanding into one of the best food truck caterers and wedding caterers in Melbourne, Fat Cats offers something unique - affordable catering that's delicious, fresh and flavour packed! We're constantly on the move so if you're looking for mobile food catering in Victoria we can travel to you!
Adrian has catered for a multitude of weddings and other events in and around Melbourne and truly loves collaborating on unique menus to suit your individual event, dietary requirements and budget. Check out some of our recent catering menus under the YUMS section below. Whether it’s a music festival, engagement, wedding, corporate event or private gig, Fat Cats aims to create memorable experiences with food and friends. Check out our blog to see some of our recent events in action!
"Adrian is the best wedding caterer in the biz! We loved working with someone who was just so nice and chilled out and not super 'wedding-y' in the lead up – that’s exactly what we wanted. AND Adrian's food is awesome - modern, colourful and freaking delicious. Ben and I still talk about our taste testing lunch at Adrian’s house – one of the best lunches we’ve ever had and you’d never know from the good chats we were having, that we’d only just met Adrian. We wouldn’t have changed a thing about Adrian’s food on the wedding day. It was perfect. And his van is rad too." (Cassie and Ben are pictured above. Photo cred: Jessica Prince).
"Fat Cats catering are amazing! Adrian and his team were so accommodating for our surprise wedding. With a very tight timeline thrown at them they were able to provide just what we needed and did everything they could to make it a special night. They were so helpful in food suggestions and how to provide affordable wedding catering for our 170 guests! The guests are still raving about the delicious canapes and taco feast, and how friendly the Fat Cats team were. Everyone loved the food van, decorations they added and the atmosphere it created. We'd recommend booking catering with Fat Cats to anyone."
"WOW! What can I say?! Adrian and his team were fabulous, providing catering for a sit down, shared meal for 100 guests at our Melbourne wedding. Adrian took the time to discuss our menu, answer questions and cater for our family and friends who have allergies. Most importantly, the food was delicious, full of flavour and fresh! We highly recommend the Fat Cats food van and fancy catering team for any wedding or function. Thanks Adrian!"
Our mobile food van can park on all private property and some public spaces where we can obtain a permit. Let us know your precise location and we’ll go from there. We provide catering with or without the van, so if it doesn’t fit your space we would still love to serve you (measurements and more info here). Once we arrive it takes around 30 minutes for us to get set up and cooking! When providing food van catering, we can serve up to 100 guests per hour of service, but will work with your schedule. If you have a kitchen space available at your venue, we can speed up our service and cook more in less time (see below).
We also have an awesome branded gazebo (3 x 3 metre tent) that we cook and serve from. We bring along all our mobile catering equipment so we can cook just as efficiently as with our food van. We just need access to power or can bring along our generator. This is a great option if your property doesn't haven't the right access for our van.
Often when we cater a big event at a hired function space or private property (e.g. a wedding), we don't need to necessarily bring our food van or food stall. If your venue has an on-site kitchen that we can use, we can do big scale catering for weddings and any other events. But often we bring the van along as well as extra kitchen space.
We like to take the stress out of your hands and ensure you have minimal streams of organisation to attend to in preparation for your big day. We offer wait-staff, and hire of plates, serving ware and cutlery (or complimentary disposable ones). We will quote you on these when you enquire.
We love getting on the road and often take our catering service to the wider Melbourne region, travelling across Victoria. There may be a small travel fee, depending on the location. Get in touch to discuss further.
There is no food van hire fee, but we have a minimum spend of $800 - $1000 (depending on the time of year). This can be made up with items from one of our menus. Contact us for a personalised quote.
If you like the look of what we do and want to know more, please fill out the contact form, call, or send us an emoji only text if that’s how you communicate — we’ll work it out.
We're based in Yarraville Melbourne but we're on the move, providing food truck event and wedding catering all over Melbourne and across Victoria.
