WHO's the Caterer

When you need to cater ... we cater to your need.

A Few Things About Us

WHO’s the Caterer is a Christchurch catering service for all your catering needs. And we’ve been doing this since 1996! We’re small enough to be personal but large enough to be professional. When you need a caterer, then contacting us is all you have to do.

I take pride in the fact that most of the time you are dealing with me, Nelson, the owner of WHO’s the Caterer. I am a qualified chef and baker, and have been running WHO’s the Caterer for the past 15 years. When you contact WHO’s the Caterer, I am the person you deal with – no answering service, no machines, just the real ME.

I’ll be the person who listens to you when you tell me about your requirements, I’ll be the person who tells you about previous menus at functions similar to yours, and I’ll be the person who then tailors your menu to suit YOU.

I will be there at the function to make sure all the little details we have discussed are put into practice so your function is EXACTLY what you wanted. I’ll even have ironed the tablecloths and washed the dishes.

And my service doesn’t end with looking after culinary treats. We can arrange hiring and delivering any extras, such as tables and chairs, should you need them.

Contact me if you are arranging a function for yourself or someone else – maybe the boss has asked you to sort out something for Friday after work. Or do you have a secret? Do you want to keep it from your partner? We’ll talk through the function at a coffee shop at a time that suits you – and I’ll buy the coffee. Shhh … Mum’s the word!


If you need funeral catering for up to 400 guests, WHO’s the Caterer catering includes all staff, crockery, cutlery, glass and linen table cloths. You choose the venue: private home, sports clubrooms or church hall. For birthdays (whether it’s a 21st or one of those dreaded big-‘0’-birthdays) you can choose from our tried and trusted menus or request your own, while corporate catering can include anything from platters for after-work drinks and product launches to finger food suppers for 20 to 200 people.

Our service comes complete with all staff, crockery and glasses (which you can return dirty). When you need to cater … we cater to your need.
