Tips On How To Start Your Own Catering Business

Equipment Inventory

Write down the items you will be needing to start your business. Inventory what you have and what equipment you’ll need to purchase. For example, your dishwasher may not have the capacity to wash that many plates at a time. So, you’ll have to buy a new one. You’ll also need dishes to transport the food, serving dishes, coolers, and ways to keep hot food hot.

Market Pigeonhole

Find a market pigeonhole that the competition has overlooked or that you feel you can excel at. As a small-scale startup, you in your initial days, might not have the capacity to provide service to a venue of 100+ guests. But, you can give out your services to wedding showers, engagement parties, and bachelorette parties quite comfortably. Determine a menu to offer your catering clients. Also, do a thorough research of what your competitors are offering.

Establish Relations

Find good vendors. Catering is more than just cooking! Often the caterer is expected to provide linens, china, glassware, utensils, etc. They are also expected to provide tables and chairs at some events along with good quality food. Research the suppliers in your area ahead of time.


Develop a marketing program to reach your potential clients. Design business cards, stay social, maintain social profiles to stay ahead in the game. Make a few of your signature dishes and take photos for the brochure and your website. In this way, you will reach more and more people even though you plan on starting a small-scale catering business.
