Dial-a-Picnic was started in 2007 when the owner, Paula Janse van Rensburg, was looking for a picnic catering company to cater for her wedding. She could not find anyone that could cater a full setup with delicious food packed into wicker baskets, blankets, cushions, etc. So Dial-a-Picnic was started with the intentions to provide memorable experiences in beautiful settings. Dial-a-Picnic caters for any special occasion.
Dial-a-Picnic is fast becoming a house hold name throughout South Africa.
