Brent Colautti kicked off his catering career after many years managing bars and restaurants. Just a few years later, his catering business has grown to employ 30 people, who have been part of 400 weddings and counting. Their custom-designed kitchen on wheels takes them to both indoor and outdoor weddings and events from the Sunshine Coast to Byron Bay – they see the travel as one of the perks of the job!
From their stylish food van, they create restaurant-quality food, customising their menus to suit the occasion, whether it be a travelling feast, banquet, sit-down meal, grazing table – any dining style, and within your budget. Any and all dietary requirements can be accommodated and best of all, they don’t stop at the food. The Something for Catering team includes some seriously talented mixologists and they offer a carefully curated beer, wine and spirits list to take care of all your wedding beverages.
Brent has taken his business to impressive heights, and we heard all about it. Read on to learn more about the man behind the business and what Something for Catering is all about…
Brent, you have a really interesting origin story that didn’t initially include working on weddings. Tell us about your business evolution…
You have a completely free day to hang out on the Sunshine Coast. Get out about! Where are you going, what are you doing and who are you with?
I’m 100% with my fiancé Aimee and two young children, Arlo and Halle. We are going to the farmers markets, beach, parks or camping in one of the many beautiful spots on the coast. If I’m not with them I’m bar hopping or eating out with Aimee and/or my friends.
