About Ultimo Catering & Events

Ultimo Catering & Events are a highly recognised Perth catering company and market leader in the catering industry.  For over 17 years we have been providing specialty food and associated catering services to a wide range of corporate and private clients.

Setting the standard for Perth catering, Ultimo Catering & Events have established an enviable reputation for delivering innovative, fresh & modern cuisine, with ingredients sourced from WA’s finest local and regional produce.

Since commencing business in 1997, Ultimo has catered for functions and events with numbers ranging from 5 to 17,000 people. These functions include large indoor and outdoor events, formal dinners, cocktail parties, buffet dinners and also hold the catering contracts for Royal Show, Subiaco Football Club and The Quarry Amphitheatre. We are clearly focused on being the “event, wedding and corporate catering specialist”. We never compromise on quality, quantity and service.


The Ultimo Catering & Events philosophy involves:

Imagination  – creativity in all aspects of catering service

Innovation – in our food and menu design, systems and presentation

Intelligence  – experience and expertise in small & large scale event catering

Although Ultimo is based in Perth, we have also successfully catered for large events and functions all around Australia.  Ultimo has proven systems for running catering events in and outside of the Perth metropolitan areas.  We have run events in Kalgoorlie, Busselton, Northern Western Australia, Bunbury, Port Macquarie, Melbourne, Sydney, Maitland and Canberra.


Our Team

Our collective experience in the hospitality industry spans many years and encompasses every aspect of the catering industry and the individual strengths of key directors and management are united to deliver outcomes required to be a successful catering company.

Ultimo have over 50 staff in different areas from management, accounts, wedding & function coordinators, marketing team, kitchen staff and stock room. We also employ over 70 wait staff, all RSA certified and experienced in a range of hospitality services.


The Best Perth Chefs

Our on-site commercial kitchen is run by a team of over 25 local and international chefs with a wealth of knowledge and experience in all aspects of the culinary arts. We selectively employ our chefs from all over the world to ensure the collective experience in food knowledge, menu design, plating and passion is un-matched on the Perth culinary scene. Many chefs have joined Ultimo with backgrounds from some of the best restaurants in Australia including Federico Battig who has come straight from working at Quay in Sydney (the only Michelin Star awarded restaurant in Australia). We pride ourselves on being able to confidently say we not only have one of the best catering teams of chefs in Perth but also in Australia. If restaurant quality cuisine is what our clients desire rest assure we have the ability to deliver it.
