About Us


Who are CQ Catering?

We are an independent family-run business, offering buffets and bespoke catered event solutions, with a home-made & fresh ethos. We love food, and we strive to have this show through in our service to you!! We work with only the most reliable suppliers who supply us with the quality raw ingredients necessary to deliver the best food to you, and have our own internal delivery capability to ensure there is no delay between the kitchen and the customer.


The business was initially established in 2004 as Café Quays, a sandwich & coffee shop with external catering services. We rebranded in 2014 as CQ Catering, offering Business & Event Catering throughout Manchester and Warrington, and moved into a purpose-built facility in Croft, Cheshire. All our staff are fully-trained City & Guilds Level 2 Food Hygiene specialists with CPD Food Allergen Awareness. We hold the maximum five star food hygiene rating.
