Step 2:

This section of the course is the first paid module of the program. In this course I will hold your and every step of the way to discovering solutions to the most pressing issues of starting a catering business. How will you find the food you need to purchase? Where will you get the catering equipment? How can you afford all of this? All of this is covered in the first lecture.

The second lecture will teach you to drill down on what your core strengths are so you can effectively define what you can offer to your potential customers and avoid a nightmare scenario that you land a job that you are not able to perform.

The third lecture outlines how you will be able to take payment of the events and also what technology and software you may want to utilize before launching your business.

  4. How to use your projected purchases to calculate a simple per person or flat rate price for your guest and for you to know exactly how much money you will be taking in per job.

Step 4:

This is probably the one most valuable module in the entire course and the reason will become apparent very, very soon. In this course we begin with teaching out how to sell. What is the sales process for a caterer? How do you find clients? How to you get these people to trust you and to pay you? How do you market your business? How can you create a website for cheap?
