Which is why people do it illegally. It's not just with catering or the food business. With all the red tape, start up fees, permits, licenses, etc. The cards are so stacked against the average John Q Citizen to start a business and make a true living at it. It breeds the illegal market that will almost always exist. Most people doing it illegally are really good people and as weird as it sounds. Very honest people. They've just learned how screwed up and burdensome it has been made for small businesses to startup and sustain. They do it off the grid.
