If you love to cook and have an entrepreneurial spirit, then you may be thinking about starting your own catering business. This is an exciting time, but with so many things to remember to do, it can be a stressful time also.
Our first top tip is to find your niche. What food do you absolutely love to make? Having a genuine passion for your business is the main ingredient in setting it up for success and so focus on the types of food you want to offer that will help you develop your business. This could be setting yourself up in the brunch niche, wedding reception or even in appetizers and cocktails. You won’t be short of niches to choose from! You can then create a menu based on your choice, remembering to keep it to a manageable size with food that you are comfortable making.
Once you have your menu prepared, it is time to test it out on your friends and family. Get honest feedback from them about the food and service and use this to improve and make your business the very best it can be.
Finally, you will need to find a space for your catering business and ensure that you have all the supplies that you need. There are lots of different options when it comes to renting a space. When you are just starting out, you can think about hiring a commercial kitchen for a few hours at a time, or if you want to dive straight in, then you will need to find somewhere to rent that has good plumbing and where you will be able to install the equipment that you need.
You will then need to make sure that you have all the equipment and food packaging supplies that you need. This can include plates, glasses, cutlery, serving utensils, disposable plates and maybe even some lovely display trays to make your catering events more festive. You’ll also need food packaging to transport any food and when leaving any extra food with the customers.
