Hot Box Catering:
Yummies, delivered

To meet a growing demand for catering that’s a bit more ‘as and when you need it’, Healthy Yummies has expanded to offer hot box catering services. We deliver tailored hot and cold meals straight to you, in heat-controlled boxes which will keep your meals at the right temperature long enough for that last minute scene re-shoot.

How it works

You are familiar with our location catering services, but your team is small and you don’t need all the bells and whistles. Hot Box catering is your answer. Think of us as your personal ‘butler service’. Place your order via email or phone call: Give us your numbers and requirements. Then rest easy in the knowledge that your meals will arrive on time, and better yet – they’ll be kept fresh and will be ready when you are!

Totally Flexible

Whether you want us to drop-and-dash, or you prefer a tiny team to be available for individual plating service for your crew, we can accommodate. Want to be kept in barista coffee onsite all day? No problem; simply request one of our small Craft Services units. Whatever your preference or requirement, our kitchen is your lunchbox.

Allergen Labelling

  • We currently don’t have cooking/preparation areas dedicated to nut-free, gluten-free or soya-free food. This means that even nut/gluten/soya-free dishes prepared/cooked in our fryers and ovens may become cross-contaminated with allergens. Therefore all of our dishes should be avoided by those for whom this level of risk poses a threat.
  • To reiterate, there is a chance that traces of allergens can be found in any of our dishes.
  • We advise you to speak to a member of our team if you have any concerns in relation to allergies and dietary requirements.

Hot Box Catering FAQs

Our meals are delivered in heat controlled boxes which will keep your meals fresh and at the right temperature for up to 90mins AFTER you break our quality control seal. Does Uber Eats offer that?

Hot boxes are essentially very well insulated portable containers that will preserve temperature for up to 4 hours. As soon as your food is ready it’s transferred into hot-boxes at our headquarters.

Hot Box catering is cost effective for the needs of your smaller sized production, just as full catering services are cost effective for larger scale productions. The edge that Hot-box catering has over on-site catering is that we don’t take up any space at base😉

Bookings are taken a minimum of 48hrs in advance. Cancellation with 36hrs notice comes at no cost to you. Cancellation with 24hrs notice incurs a 50% fee, and cancellation at the 12hr mark will cost you 100% of your order. Menu item changes can be made at no cost with 36hrs notice – additional orders are charged at cost. Any changes within 24hrs notice may incur a fee – this dependent upon stock availability and will be advised at the time you call with your changes.

Ideally we require 48hrs notice for ordering. We can take last minute orders up to 24hrs ahead of your requirement but this will incur a charge (see FAQ above).

We offer a variety of options that we will talk you through as part of the ordering process.

Of course! We can do almost anything if you give us enough time to prepare for it.
If your crew is requesting favourites from our past menus or menu items they’ve had from us on-set, give us a week’s notice. If they want something we’ve never prepared before, then 2 weeks notice would be good. If you’re talking Cast Menu requirements, we can definitely have this covered for you – call Ali or Alex to discuss your cast requirements.
