The story of Stocked

An abundance of quality produce offered in an authentically warm and European atmosphere was the shared dream of friends Tess Steryos and Bill Tzimas.

Starting out on different paths – Tess in graphic design and Bill, a high-school teacher – each also nurtured an interest in food. That interest grew in parallel to Australia’s evolving obsession with food culture; a movement that created new demand for boutique, quality produce, and inspired both Tess and Bill to leave their chosen careers. Bill started a cheese shop at the Queen Victoria Market and it supplied cheese to Tess’s shop, Delicatess, at the Prahran Market. It was the start of a beautiful friendship.

In 2010, when a store in Hawksburn Village became available, they decided to have a go. No business plan, but a vision to take the market to the suburbs, supported by unique industry connections and knowledge. Stocked was born, and success came fast. In 2015 they opened Stocked Malvern; then in 2020, Stocked Hawthorn.

Quality products and the best service

Bill and Tess credit the success of Stocked to their team of people – passionate chefs and front-of-house staff who know the products and are dedicated to providing the absolute best service.


They say, ‘When you love what you do, it isn’t work’ and their continued drive and energy for excellence; and dedication to finding new products is proof of their philosophy.

"Thank you for organizing all the food for my event, the catering was wonderful and everyone commented how tasty the food was. Thank you for organizing it so quickly we will definitely use Stocked again."
"Andy and the team at Stocked were an absolute pleasure to work with. The whole process from curating a menu to serving the food at our corporate function was professional, easy and most importantly delicious. Guests raved about the food and all was eaten! I look forward to using Stocked's catering service for my next event."
Emma Sumner - National Sales Account Executive
"After hesitating about wanting to celebrate my big birthday, I spoke with Tess Steryos at our lovely local deli Stocked, and right away I felt she really listened to what I was wanting for our spring garden party. Tess invited me to taste all the items I was keen on from her list, and was very flexible as to quantities and our final guest numbers. The two staff members who came were highly organised and professional as well as being delightful to have with us. Many of our guests commented on how delicious the food was. It was also colourful and beautifully presented. We really hope to have Tess and her team cater for us again soon!"
