Catering Start Up
I would like to ask you guys a couple of questions. I'm wanting to pursue/build a catering business with my BBQ. I currently do small things like ribs, butts and briskets for folks and friends in and around the neighborhood. The largest I've done was for my church and fed approx 150 people. I cooked 3 cases of butts, the church provided sides.
With todays economy where/what/how is the best way you guys have found to promote your business? I know you can't beat word of mouth, but do you have any tips on other low cost ways?
Do you prefer onsite or delivery? And what's a good rule of thumb for waste management? I certainly don't want to cook more than will be eaten, but I want to have enough.
I appreciate your replies on this. Thanks in advance.
