Hi fellow caterers,
Thanks for dropping in!
Catering Sales Tips Blog is the premier place for caterers and catering managers to pop in when they wish to learn some innovative, unique and practical, results oriented ways to market their catering business. Gaining fresh catering sales leads is the basis of growing a successful catering operation. But let’s face the music; very, very rarely does anyone go into the catering business because they love making cold calls and walking door to door passing out menus! Caterers become caterers because they love to throw parties, love to cook and show off their culinary skills and creations or they love to plan get-togethers!
Running a catering business is fun, dynamic, exciting, very emotionally satisfying and can be quite profitable too. But a catering business is a business in every business sense of the word also. And, I am sure you’ve noticed by now catering is a very, very competitive field.
When I was growing up in North Jersey, we used to laugh about how every summer, everybody who owned a pickup truck would strap a ladder onto the roof of their vehicle. They’d print up business cards and posters that they would distribute all over town, claiming to be expert house painters and handymen. They didn’t have a clue as to what they were doing but just thought it was an easy business to get into, with very little investment money needed. This psychology goes for the catering business too. Every sub shop, deli, pizza place, bar, restaurant, wing joint and even Chinese takeout places print up catering menus. Do they do any significant catering business? Not very much, yet ad all these establishments together and they take a nice chunk out of the pie.
You can be the best chef, cake decorator or ice sculpture in the history of the world, but if no one knows about you they can’t order!
