Laughing Chefs Caterers, the business baby of Maggie and Esrida (mom and daughter) have been around for more than a decade.
We started small, from a townhouse kitchen, specialising in smaller gatherings, corporate functions and intimate weddings. Soon our dreams got bigger and bigger and our ambition paved the road for bigger things. We started doing larger gatherings, more intricate weddings and bigger corporate events, some days doing 2 functions.
In 2013 we took the leap and opened up a restaurant – the first tapas bar in Pretoria, maybe even in Gauteng. We were in front of the trend, collecting accolades and awards as far as we went. Quickly we added live music shows, hosting some of South Africa’s best performers and even a few international stars, then expanded to include an art gallery, hosted weekly workshops and classes and still did events.
After 4 years we got tired of the long hours and decided to rather open a venue. So we moved back to Pretoria East. We had the venue for little more than a year before realising that we simply traded long hours for long hours. A change had to be made. We took the leap of faith and gave up the venue to go back to our roots – catering.
Now, 3 years later, we have no regrets. We love what we do, and our business has gone from strength to strength. With our many years of experience, we can now confidently say we specialise in any function, big or small, and find joy in creating them for you. From baby showers to weddings, board meetings to product launches, we have surrounded us with the best service providers, suppliers and professionals to make any celebration a success.
If you want to make your next function or event a big success, a joyous occasion and a talked-about event for years to come, then contact us for more information.
