The impact of Metro Tunnel
on your catering!

Whether you’re for or against the Metro Tunnel, there’s no denying the improvements it should bring to the Metro network will cement Melbourne’s position as the world’s most liveable city. That said, there’s going to be a fair bit of inconvenience over the next four or five years as the construction goes ahead. Elizabeth Andrews has 12 vehicles on the road and as such there will undoubtedly be some challenges for us over the coming months and years. In order to minimise any inconvenience to your deliveries we are:

  1. Keeping abreast of all the traffic alterations via http://metrotunnel.vic.gov.au/
  2. Allowing a little more time for deliveries in affected areas and reducing the amount of drops in vehicles accessing the works areas
  3. Staying informed of parking restrictions – specifically in relation to loading zones
  4. Immediately informing customers of any issues when we become aware of them

Many of the challenges the Metro Tunnels construction bring are beyond our control but as always, we will continue to try our very best to get your catering to you on time, every time.

Thanks for your understanding!

Distractions at work can really mess with your head – if you’re not careful.

Some of you may have heard me on the radio with Jon Faine last May when I was asked to go on the show and discuss the antics of our landlord who had drilled the locks, placed a security guard at the front door and one at the back door and placed a sign on the front door telling us to speak with his lawyer about getting back into the shop. Needless to say, we got straight back in!

To cut a long story short, we took the landlord to VCAT, got an injunction and subsequently he confirmed that we have a valid lease through to December 2025.

While this was certainly a distraction during the course of last year, it was great to see the team at Elizabeth Andrews come together and continue to provide the service that we’re famous for, especially when all around us there was so much uncertainty.

After the last hearing at VCAT in December, we hoped the whole matter was behind us but alas then our landlord went into liquidation in January this year. The effect of this is that the liquidator is trying to disclaim our lease and we are contesting it in the Supreme Court……..

Once again, it’s great to see the team pulling together and doing what we’re best at – making you look good by providing fantastic catering on time, every time.

Rest assured, we’ll stay the course and fight for our rights in the upcoming battle and we’ll make sure it doesn’t mess with our heads!

Did You Know?

When you’re placing an order on-line, just as you are about to click “Place Order” a prompt will come up asking if you’d like to save the order as a “Favourite”. You are then able to save this order and repeat it as many times into the future as you want – this is great for recurring meetings. When you want to repeat the order, simply enter the name you’ve given the “Favourite”, make any changes you want and then place the order – hey presto – order placed!

Cooking Tip

Instead of placing a chicken on a roasting rack, cut thick slices of onion, put them in an oiled pan, then place the chicken on top. The onion will absorb the chicken juices. After roasting, let the chicken rest while you make a sauce with the onions by adding a little stock or water to the pan and cooking it for about 3 minutes on high heat.

Your Say

Good afternoon,

Just forward(ing) through the positive feedback my team provides me every time we have catering from yourselves.

On a monthly basis we have sandwiches etc provided for meetings and the team consistently comments on the quality of the food, great taste, lovely and fresh and always consistent.

From myself, I always have such pleasant and helpful interactions when I place the order by phone, team always willing to help me where required and assist with any queries.
