The Business

Steelers is located in the heart of Wollongong’s entertainment precinct - opposite WIN Stadium and Wollongong Entertainment Centre. We are a popular venue for locals and visitors to the Illawarra, and have over 8,000 members.

We are a unique organisation, in that we are the administration hub for Junior, Senior & Representative Rugby League for the region; as well as being a licensed venue providing Bar, Gaming and entertainment facilities.

We have seen a large diversification in patronage over recent years, with particular focus on increasing female and younger customers. We are in the midst of constructing a cocktail bar, which will complement this diversification.

The departing Contract Caterer has contributed greatly to the success of our venue, with the quality of food being highly regarded and enjoyed by both members and guests.

Your Opportunity

We are now calling for Expressions of Interest to operate the Contract Catering function at our venue. We are looking to partner with a modern boutique operator that can flex their business operating model based on events happening in the entertainment precinct and general busy day to day trade.

There is seating for 500 patrons, and a function room that has a capacity of 250, depending on the event (pre-covid numbers).

The menu must complement our premium, hand-picked wine list; be of high quality and presentation; and the operator must be capable of producing high volumes of food at the highest standard.

Hours of Trade and Facilities

Steelers is open for trade is 7 days per week – Monday to Friday, lunch and dinner - with All Day dining over the weekend. We have a growing functions business that ranges from stand-up cocktail parties, large banquets and sit-down fine dining degustation events.

There are 2 fully equipped commercial kitchens (1 main production kitchen and 1 functions service kitchen). A basic level of crockery and cutlery is available, however we would like the Caterer to provide bespoke crockery for bistro dining as a minimum. The Caterer will need to supply their own back and front of house staff.
