Personally having working in the event industry for 20 plus years and in multiple markets around the world, I have encountered many outside catering companies and have to say that, Dean & McPherson is one of the best companies that I have worked with full stop. The entire team showed an incredible amount of professionalism and flexibility, but more than anything it was their teamwork, creative abilities and willingness to assist in all aspects of the event that sets them apart from any other I have worked with.

Presidents Cup

As a company we couldn’t be happier with the decision we made to partner with Dean & McPherson. The 2018 ISPS Handa World Cup of Golf was a massive success and the perfect launching pad for what was to come as the 2019 Presidents Cup was the biggest and most successful Presidents Cup to date across every key metric. We can’t thank Dean & McPherson enough for their partnership and know that we would not have achieved what we did without them.

North Melbourne Grand Final Breakfast

I just wanted to send you a note to say thanks for all of your assistance with making the breakfast a success. We have had some great feedback and much of it centred on the quality and quantity of food so it was a really great experience for our guests. On top of that the service you provided was first rate and we certainly made the correct decision in working with you and your team. Your flexibility in helping us drive as many sales as possible was greatly appreciated, in particular considering how busy you were with the constant changes around the Cox Plate.
