Shake and Strain started in 2008 with 2 employees and can now boast with a staff compliment of over 100 casuals. We specialise in event management, mobile beverage catering, hospitality staff and training. We are level 4 B-BBEE accredited and tax compliant.
Our passion lies in full event management and creating an unforgettable, flawless event for our clients. Our director carries 10 years of experience in the event industry and over 15 years in the hospitality industry - we know what people want and we aim to work as part of their team. With perfect execution from setup to breakdown, we strive to bring you excellence. We have coordinated events ranging from 20 to 4,000 people, from office parties to big walks.
Unfortunately in the hospitality industry, people have grown accustomed to poor service at events and in restaurants. We would like to raise the bar on hospitality staff. We supply service training for waiters, bartenders, cocktail bartenders and promotional staff. Let us bring the bar to you. With our customised bar counters, we can setup a mobile beverage catering station anywhere. We can supply all the operational equipment from glassware and stock to consumables and staff to make your event spectacular. We also devise custom beverage and cocktail menus to suit your specific requirements.
We can supply beverages on consumption and cash bars for corporate events. Whether it is for a full mobile liquid experience, or just arrival drinks, let us shake and strain it. Whether you need registration staff or flaring cocktail bartenders, we can fulfil your staffing needs. Creating job opportunities for the youth of today is top priority for us. We supply them with training and make sure they are acquainted with our level of service excellence. Our staff list includes junior events managers, bar anchors, bartenders, cocktail bartenders, flair tenders, bar assistants, waiters, scullery staff, hostesses, promotional staff, event runners and event setup and breakdown staff.
