Duffs Diner catered for an exclusive corporate client event at Vitra where the quality of produce and brand connection were of high importance. Stephen and Fiona not only produced outstanding quality gourmet beef burgers, using the finest quality ingredients, but were welcoming, courteous and professional to all our clients. All delivered from a beautifully finished Airstream-style unit. Duffs Diner made a very pivotal contribution to what became a hugely successful corporate event – and the burgers are still being talked about!
