Catering is a fantastic way to channel your energy, creativity, and passion into a business you can be proud of! The demand for catering is booming, and if you enjoy entertaining, cooking, baking and making money, starting your own catering business from home might be a perfect fit.
Billions of dollars are being spent on catering every year. And those numbers are only expected to rise. This guide will help you carve out your “piece of the catering pie”
Here’s some startling statistics:
70% of new independent restaurant don’t keep their doors open for 12 months, and of those that are left another 18% don’t make it to year 4.
