Small Scale Catering Business

Interested in starting a small scale catering business?   Running a catering business can be very rewarding.  But it is important that caterers have:

  • basic business skills
  • strong culinary background
  • keen desire to please the people they serve
  • organisational ability to master the complexities of the business.

Restaurant, cafe or coffee shop

On the other hand, do you dream of having your own restaurant, café or coffee shop?  Restaurants may seem to offer glamour and excitement;  after all, the job is concerned with:

  • good food
  • good atmosphere
  • the chance to meet interesting new people
  • and some successful owners may even become local celebrities. 

Reality is very different, involving long hours and dedicated hard work for small profits.

So, you want to start and run your own food business. Congratulations!
