The idea for Feast It came from a genuine love of food, events and the theatre of amazing catering. Feast It makes event planning that little bit easier, by offering a one stop shop where you can discover, compare and book the country’s best catering without any hassle at all.
Like all great stories, Feast It started with a simple idea to improve catering, eat free food, and to win a girl.
Co-founders Digby and Hugo (yeah we know they sound like a walking cliche) had spent years working in the food, festival and events industries. They grew incredibly frustrated by the huge amount of time they were spending trying to hunt down the best catering, find out if they were available and then trying to book them. It seemed a bit mad that there wasn’t a modern, simple to use booking platform that would let them book the ideal food and drink for their next event. Delicious food, creative drinks and amazing service, without the legwork.
Summer 2016 rolled around and hours were spent calling traders, getting quotes, and managing logistics, until they realised they were no closer and there simply had to be a simpler way. Digby and Hugo started spending all their time trying out new restaurants and street traders and chatting about how they could create a platform that would allow you to browse caterers, see their photos, menus and estimated prices, and make a booking all in one go.
Then Digby tried to impress a girl by quitting his job, and Feast It was born.
Fast forward 8 months to early 2017, andwent live, a simple platform bringing together over 300 of the country’s best food and drink suppliers, all easily bookable at the click of a button.
Digby still got dumped, but now he eats for free at a lot of places, which he claims he prefers.
