Steve Sidd Family Values

 

 

 

FAMILY VALUES

STEVE lives and breathes ‘food’. HIS parents were always cooking and entertaining family and friends, so when steve started his first catering company in 1996, it felt natural. 

Steve is a highly experienced retail and food services specialist with decades of experience in hospitality management, project management and consulting experience. He has been very involved in workforce reform in the Hospitality Industry and has in-depth knowledge and expertise in business and workforce planning and management.

 

 

“My father was in the catering business and all I ever wanted to do was to follow in his footsteps. During school, I helped out at dad’s restaurants. I loved the buzz and the passion that went on behind the scenes.”

STEVE SIDD

Over the years Steve has owned and operated cafés, restaurants, bars and catering venues. Today, under the umbrella of Catering HQ, Steve heads up the highly successful boutique catering business specialising in three main areas: venue catering (clubs, pubs and hotel groups); external catering (for large and high-end events); and hospitality consultancy (for the club, pub, hotel and franchise group sectors). 

Employing almost 200 people and on a strength path of growth, Steve prides himself on delivering quality food and service, always looking at trends and, importantly, setting trends themselves. 

Steve’s passion and his mission is to improve and support the hospitality industry in Australia and to ensure that the industry is seen as a career of choice across the nation. Steve creates exceptional and effortless dining experiences for his loyal clientele, whilst managing his dining rooms with precision, enthusiasm and a smile.

Steve’s venue at Moorebank Sports Club has recently achieved Best Family Dining Restaurant in the Restaurant and Catering Awards for Excellence 2017 in both state and national awards.

 

meeting customer expectations

“Everyone knows so much more about food than they did,” says Sidd. “The quality of the food has to be really good because people know what they like. That’s what my business always comes down to – getting out good quality food. Nowadays, customers are watching TV shows about food, they’re engaged, they know about healthy eating and you have to cater for all of that. 

Steve believes wholeheartedly that quality food has to be part of the package and is all about providing a high-standard product on the plate – every time. Everything is made from fresh high quality products and sourced as locally as possible. It does require a lot of labour, but the results speak for themself.

On a busy day, we can feed 6,000 people. So, as you can imagine, it’s been tough and maybe I do worry. But I have still got some hair left!”

STEVE SIDD

Steve is passionate about everything that he does, and that includes his downtime and family time. When he’s not working, he ensures there is always time to fit in a daily gym training session tohelp clear his mind and soul, and get him mentally ready for the day ahead. When he’s not working out though, he does enjoy lazing by a pool or enjoying a meal with his beautiful wife and two children.
