Moving on after 18 years


CATERING company Wise Choice is on the move after being based for 18 years at Mornington Racecourse.

“Unfortunately for us, Melbourne Racing Club [which runs Mornington Racecourse] has decided not to renew our contract, which means the end to a fabulous era at the track,” Tony Carter, one of the three partners of Wise Choice said.

“Best we get on with business and get on with what we do best, serving the local people,” Cheryl Carter said.

She said Wise Choice “started with the three boys who call themselves brothers”.

“Although Tony is an in-law, they have shared a special bond, operating a tight knit family business on the Mornington Peninsula and beyond for over 27 years.”

Tony Carter, who has worked for some of Melbourne’s leading caterers, teamed up with brothers David and Gary, a schoolteacher and financial banker respectively.

“We’re not going too far,” Tony Carter said.  “We have purchased premises in Mornington where will set up our new commercial kitchen.

“We were all ready for a change and moving back into what we love most, catering in people’s homes, beautiful marquee settings, and home weddings is what we do best. We also cater for large and small corporate events.”

Wise Choice will still continue to service customers at such places as Eagle Ridge Golf Club, and has acquired Functions by the Bay, at the Frankston football oval, where it will be able to provide catering for up to 200.

Pakenham Race Club, which has a function room for up to 600, will also be a base for Wise Choice.

Wise Choice is now at 8 Satu Way Mornington, call 5975 0733.
