Corporate Event Testimonials

Clinical Lab’s Cocktail @  the Geelong Library & Heritage Centre


I have now worked with THE RK GROUP catering on several occasions and highly recommend them.

Their organisation skills, quality of food and customer service is some of the best I have experienced.

The staff are all well trained and high quality. I would not hesitate to book them for events in the future.


Victorian Farmers Federation Gala Dinner @ the Geelong Library & Heritage Centre


I honestly cannot praise the THE RK Group enough; our event was a huge success! A massive thank you for Nicole for making the whole planning process simple and stress free, Nicole was genuine and so lovely to liaise with. Another massive thank you to the operations team who ran the evening, they were very attentive and friendly, the function ran very smoothly. The VFF would strongly recommend this venue and hopes to return again.


St Joseph’s Football & Netball Club Dinner @ the Geelong Library & Heritage Centre


Wonderful Venue, Wonderful Food, Wonderful Service

We would just like to congratulate THE RK GROUP on the Fantastic Night we had in the Wurdi Youang Room for our 2017 Presentation Night.

The City of Geelong just looked amazing at Night from the Balcony & the food & table service provided by THE RK GROUP just fabulous !!!

Richard & his team are just so easy to work with and we are just so fortunate to have such a wonderful relationship with THE RK GROUP.


Burke Britton Financial Partners Client Dinner @ the Geelong Library & Heritage Centre


When deciding on a venue for our 2017 Premium Client Function it seemed like a no-brainer. With Geelong Libraries new function space – including the great view from the top level – we decided it would be ideal for hosting our local and out of town clients.

The process of using THE RK GROUP and Geelong Library & Heritage Centre was seamless.

We were provided with multiple options for catering, timing, function space and packages which helped shape our annual function into an appropriate event for our company – one which we have very high standards for.

The constant updates and contact from both teams meant we were well organised and gave us great peace of mind.

The setup of the room was outstanding – we had over 100 seated guests for a three course dinner and were comfortably fit into the expandable room.

We had full use of the AV system and also brought in our own musicians which was no issue.

We had fantastic feedback from our attending clients – particularly on the meals and the table and bar service provided.

Overall, I would highly recommend THE RK GROUP and Geelong Library & Heritage Centre for any type of function you may be considering – big or small.


Geelong Heritage Wine Walk @ the Geelong Library & Heritage Centre


I just want to start by saying that I think you had the best venue and the best food! You were incredibly generous with those chicken burgers, which were just beautiful! Our wine tasters were very impressed with their canape at the Geelong Library and Heritage Centre.

We had 412 wine walkers and everyone seemed to have a wonderful day.

Thank you for your support, we were very appreciative. The money raised will go a long way to helping a lot of people this year!


St John of God Hospital Christmas Party @ the Royal Geelong Yacht Club


Thank you so much for the catering at our Christmas Party last Friday.  Peter’s service was exemplary.

My experience with THE RK GROUP has been so easy and positive from the first contact to the last.

The food was excellent (I’m still salivating thinking about it, especially the scallop!) and the service was perfect!

I’ve heard nothing but compliments the whole night.
Well done on having such an amazing team!

All our bellies were so full because we just could not stop trying all the magnificent and different appetizers. And the service provided by Guler and Amy were exceptional. They made sure that every guest was taken care of and even helped my barman serve drinks when they had a chance. When your team left at the end of the service, they left our kitchen and entertainment area spotless, making my wife, Caz, so happy in the morning. If I could give this team an 11 out of 10, I  would.

The feedback that I have received about the food provided on the evening from our employees has been nothing but complimentary.  The choice on offer was outstanding and the vegetarian meals were excellent.  The staff on the evening handled our employees diplomatically but showed assertiveness when required.

I would not hesitate to recommend THE RK GROUP to others and thoroughly enjoyed the experience working with such a professional catering organisation.
