I'm getting closer to getting everything set-up for catering, trying to get everything set for the 1st of July.
I'll be starting with smaller events (25-75) and growing from there.

-Got the HD application process going and that seems to be going well, though I'm sure there will be hiccups along the way.

-Thanks to billm in one of other threads, I found some Carlisle end loaders at a good price ($170 @ equippers.com) that'll be here Friday.

-Luckily, I've got a Sam's about 2 miles away.

I need to start looking for an insurance policy. What companies provide it? Do you guys have any recommendations of some places to start looking?

Start with your current insurance provider, they may offer a general liability policy or can at least refer you to a company that can.

I got a $1M liability umbrella from our auto folks for $180 for the year.

How many of the Carlisle units did you order and which model? I've got two to start with myself, not sure if I will need more or less but that felt right to me based on the casual jobs I've done.

I got 2 as well. That's what I can afford for now and I'll be starting with pretty small jobs.

I suggest if you do any events with alcohol you may want to just start with an insurance policy for hte general liability with a liquour rider. I started with a general then we went to a facility that required that I have liquer lability insurance in addition to my general liability. The facility would provide one for 150.00 for the day but I found to wrap it into one I provide an additional service and then we dont need a day alcohol permit from the state and the facilities fee. Just a suggestion.
