2. Market Categories
The market for catering services can be roughly divided into two main categories: Private and Corporate events.
Private catering services are usually for things like family occasions such as weddings, parties and funerals or even dinner parties for two or more.
Corporate catering services are usually for things like board meetings, functions and award ceremonies; mostly serving Government or other large institutions and businesses.
You may choose to specialise in one or both of these or you may just supply a particular type of food such as cakes or sandwiches.
You will need more than just an ability to produce good food – you’ll also need a good head for business, planning and organisation as well as a flair for marketing.
