The Village Caterer was established in 2006 and has quickly established itself as the premier Caterer on the Fraser Coast, Queensland.  The Village Caterer is the trading name of the Catering division of Torbay Retirement Villages Limited.  This Company has been established for more than thirty years, operating the Torbay Aged Care and Retirement Village , and the  new Parklands Retirement Haven in Hervey Bay.

The Village Caterer was established not only to cater for these two Retirement Facilities but also to raise much-needed funds for the operation of our aged care facilities. The Village Caterer’s goal is to be the largest and best caterer on the Fraser Coast, servicing needs across the whole range of catering from a platter of sandwiches, to bulk meals, to the most lavish banquets.

A new state-of-the-art production kitchen was purpose-built and opened in February 2010 at Urangan with a huge capacity to allow for the rapid expansion of this business.  The Village Caterer is growing quickly and is actively seeking additional business across the whole range of catering.

The Company has established a reputation for caring, not only for its residents but also its staff.  We believe in caring for our staff the same way that we expect staff to care for our clients.

Our staff are employed under the Hospitality Industry Awards.

Applications from candidates with experience in hospitality will be considered favourably.
