Starting a Small Business/catering business

Question
Hi,
What is needed to start a catering business, small scale.
Thanks

Answer
The biggest thing that you need to find out is where your customers are and what kind of catering they require. It could be anything from a food van to wedding catering. Once you have decided on this, check the legal, tax and licensing requirements. Now get your equipment together and start looking for customers.

Expertise

If you are a serious entrepreneur and want to set up your own business or ensure that your existing business is more profitable then let me assist you. I answer questions on business start up, business strategy, business models, business planning, marketing plans, marketing strategy, branding, business tune ups and business improvement. I do not answer any legal, tax or accountancy questions - you should see your own professional adviser about these. If you cannot be bothered to read and rate my answers - I can't be bothered to answer yours! If you have a small internet based company, I would welcome your help in completing a survey and helping me with my Masters Dissertation. I am researching how a small company can build its brand and grow quickly using social media marketing. The survey takes 4 minutes and all information is confidential and will NEVER be used for marketing purposes. Thank you in advance.
