How To Start A Tiffin Service Business?
If you love cooking and are passionate about hosting people to your food, you can start a simple yet interesting tiffin or Dabba service business. It’s an effective way to use your cooking skills to reap maximum profits with minimum investment.
The model of the tiffin service business is quite simple. You serve fresh and healthy home-made food to people who are living away from their homes. Typically, your customers will be young working professionals or students. So, the key to running a successful tiffin service is healthy and simple home-made food and nothing fancy.
Tips On Starting Your Own Tiffin Service
Where To Start?
If you want to set up a tiffin service facility at your home, you should have adequate space for cooking and packing bulk orders. A household kitchen of Indian homes is good enough to cook food for 40 to 50 people. But, as your customer base increases by over 50 people, you may have to rent out space in the same locality.
The next step is to get a food and safety license from the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI). However, this is mandatory only for those businesses that have an annual turnover of over 10 lacs or more.
For marketing, Tiffin Service mainly works on word of mouth. Positive feedbacks are what will get you more customers.
Before putting together the cost, you must know what a basic meal consists of? A basic meal typically consists of one dal, sabzi, rice, chapattis, and maybe even salad. Costs borne by you will include the initial one-time investment and several recurring expenses.
You need to make an initial investment of 20,000- 30,000 on utensils, burner, and other essentials needed for cooking. Keep this much cost in mind, to begin with.
Running a tiffin service involves several recurring costs. Foremost, groceries cost per person, each day for two meals will be around INR 100. If you handle most of the cooking work yourself, then you will need two assistants for cooking and cleaning, which will cost you anywhere between INR 6,000-8,000 per month. If you wish to provide door to door delivery then you’ll have to shell out around INR 8,000 extra.
