Less than 5 minutes! It’s easy. Use our form to provide some basic details about your event, and we'll generate a menu for your event in minutes. We’ll send you the menu link to share with your team. They can order directly from the link - so you won’t have to do anything else!
We’ll tailor the menu to suit your budget. To maximise menu options and ensure a great experience, we recommend budgeting for around $25 per head - but it’s up to you!
Food will be delivered at the arrival time specified. Often food will arrive slightly early. Make sure you specify the food arrival time as the time your group will be eating.
Get in touch at least 24 hours before your event.
We’ll send an invoice after the event. You can pay by credit card or bank transfer. If your workplace has specific payment needs, let us know and we can figure it out ;)
Everyone should submit their order by 2pm the day before the event. This gives our eatery partners plenty of time to prepare.
We’ll send you a spreadsheet that helps you track who has ordered.
Got some stragglers? Send a gentle reminder. If they haven’t ordered by the deadline (3pm the day before the event), you can easily order extra meals on behalf of others via the menu link. Or, if you need a little more time to collect those last orders, get in touch with your friendly Fussy contact.
Yes! Let us know during set-up, and we’ll make it easy to do this. You can also place individual orders on behalf of others in the menu link (e.g. if somebody has forgotten to order).
No worries! Just let us know as soon as possible, and we’ll sort it out.
FAQs - continued.
Yes! Each meal is labelled with the name of the person who ordered it, the meal, and the dietary specifications about that meal (if any).
All packaging is reusable and food safe. We currently use packaging from Reusabowl. The bowls are made using rice husk and the lids are food-grade silicone. The packaging is made to be reused 100’s of times and is designed for commercial dishwashing.
Just put them back in the box we delivered them in - no need to wash up! We’ll come and collect them and give them a full clean, so they’re ready for the next order. We’ll take care of food scraps, too.
You can choose! You can select a collection time during set-up. Note, we charge an additional fee for some options.
Remind the team to return containers to the collection box - we reuse them! If one goes missing, we’ll invoice you the cost to replace it.
Absolutely! If you like the bowls your food came in, feel free to keep them for the office and we’ll invoice you for them. If your team like them, they can head along to www.reusabowl.nz/store and grab one for themselves.
If you enjoyed your meal, but it was a little too much for lunch, it might be a good idea to take some home with you! Transfer to your own containers for easy transport and place our packaging back in the container. For any leftovers you do not want to keep, feel free to fill one of the containers with the food and we will make sure all leftovers are composted.
Fussy do! We have a dedicated team providing end-to-end services, from delivery to washing the containers.
Yes - when ordering, guests should use the "additional instructions" field to clearly specify any allergies. Please note that while our eatery partners will take all reasonable efforts to accommodate customers' dietary needs, there is a chance that there may be traces of allergens in the kitchen.
Who we are.
We’re Bobby and Greg, Fussy founders.
We both have health issues that limit our food choices. We love a good get-together, but the food at catered events sucks when you have dietary restrictions! Gluten free “scones” that taste like sand, vegetarian “sandwiches” with less personality than a brick, and vegan “burgers” filled with nothing but lettuce and sadness…
We were sick of feeling “fussy” for wanting better choices, or guilty for asking for anything extra… but we’ve also organised catering ourselves, so we know how much effort goes into getting a menu together. It can feel impossible to please everyone!
We believe that people do great things together - the last thing we want is for the food to spoil the fun.
So, we started Fussy to make it super easy to organise catering that everyone will love.
