Catering Business Plan Template
“Can you COOK? Then you can CATER!”
Are you someone with a passion for cooking?
If the answer is yes then you should really be CATERING.
After all, cooking and selling food is still one of the simplest ways to make money, because almost anyone can do it!
More importantly, if you cook, you probably have a favorite type of food.
Maybe it’s Italian, maybe it’s French or Thai or Sushi or you’re an expert at making baked goods.
And this is what’s going to help you find a gap in the market you can exploit, and be instantly successful with.
Believe me although it may not seem like it, this is a business where you can make more than enough money.
You see, most grocery store deli’s actually earn most of their money taking outside catering orders. Everybody knows how much money they make, and if you can steal even a small slice of their market you’ll be set.
And the list of people who hire caterers is almost endless. For example, you can cater for…
- Birthdays and private parties.
- Weddings and anniversaries.
- Bar Mitzvah’s.
- Office parties and conferences.
- Special celebrations and functions.
And what’s great about this business is that it needs very little overhead.
Most of your jobs will not be so large that you need a huge kitchen.
In fact, you can probably use your own kitchen if it’s certified. Not only that, you probably already have all of the cookery tools and equipment needed.
So what do you need?
Money for food, and for employees that can help you get everything cooked and delivered.
Most importantly, you need funding so that you can market your business and spread the word about what you have on offer. Ultimately you need to convince business people that your idea is viable.
And to do this you’re going to need a stellar business plan.
Our fill in blanks with red instructional text business plan template will take care of everything.
