Corporate Catering

248 247

In January of 2019 we had the pleasure of catering for Hiti Ireland. This was a corperate training event hosted in Naas Ireland. The challenge for us on this event was to serve 100 Liege Waffles in 20mins and we did this with ease. Every catering event we take on is tailored to suit the each client so time, topping choices or location it’s down to you..

Liam Neeson Hires our Waffle truck in Belfast

A day in August I recieved an email enquiring about hiring one of our waffle trucks for a film shoot. I wasn’t sure what the movie was and treated it as any other enquiry I get as we have serverd waffles at many shoots including Game of Thrones, Nightflyers and even our MK1 has starred in an advertising shoot (I didn’t make the screen!). Annnnyyhoooo…..back to this enquiry…After a few emails I got a call on a Friday afternoon while our 3 year old was in his funny half hour and was attached to my leg and I’m trying to be serious…A lovely lady called Anna said that she was the one emailing and said she would like to book and also said it’s Liam Neeson booking us as a gift to the cast and crew as a thank you…WELL after Anna said Liam Neeson (while Micah my son is attached on my leg laughing) I almost fell over. As always privacy is very important for our clients and naturally I was asked not to say to anyone until after the event….I must confess I told my wife who was as excited as me if not more…I had 5 days to keep my mouth shut and oh my was I flippin excited. That weekend we already had a big event on with MK2 but MK1 was on standby ready for action. On Saturday morning almost 1am we arrived at our film shoot location in Belfast and ready to serve for 2am. After everyone had been fed we had cleaned the trailer down and waited to see if we could meet the man himself. 5am arrived and this huge guy came walking accross the carpark saying “everyone is raving about these waffles” WOW and WOOOW!! He really wanted to get a photo with me beacause of my waffley success (JOKE LOL)….While getting a photo with him I asked are you going to Ballymena? He said he was going up to visit his mum. I told him I lived in Ahoghill just outside Ballymena and he started asking me did I know this one and this guy….Not only did he give us great business which we appreaciate from all you guys too..but he loved to have a wee chat which I love the most about my job…I love a waffle more ways than one 🙂

Belgium vs England 2018 World cup match

 

We had the pleasure of providing delicious waffles beside Barn & Bread at a corperate booking in Holywood just outside Belfast. This company wanted to celebrate Belgium v England in style, so when they had finisehed work they had some collegues over for a big feed and enjoyed the match together.

MK2 Trailer on the road

2018 we took another step of faith and put another trailer on the road. Of course I had already double booked a wedding and an event….nothing like a bit of preaseure to make you work faster. So with 3 weeks of purchasing another horse trailer I (with help!!) had finished the second trailer. It is slightly bigger than the first which is awesome to work in. We’ve recently had it in Troy Studios Limerick and Google Summer Party in Dublin. I just love how our business takes us all over Ireland and we get to meet some awesome people.

Strawboffee Pie Waffle

This has to be my favourite waffle combination, Liege waffle..fresh strawberries..biscuit..homemade sticky toffee sauce. Ok you may have issues eating this waffle in a dignified way but we just say “shove it in” and enjoy the mess.

Disclaimer: You may need extensive washing..bath or power hose after eating this waffle 🙂strawboffeestrawboffee pie
