People will always look at price but I feel as long as we provide a quality product the cream will rise to the top sooner or later.

What is the one thing that we all say about any catered event we attend?
It is always how the food was served and tasted!!
Do a quality job, at a fair price with top ingredients and the positive feedback to the customer will support the cost of your catering!!
Good luck and success to you and your new venture.

Well we did our first "big" catering job yesterday. Pulled pork, baked beans and slaw for 250. Everything went very smoothly with no disasters. Everyone seemed to enjoy it, and then between 2:00 and 7:00 yesterday afternoon we received six calls for catering quotes.

That is great, always nice to hear success stories. Take some pic's and post sometime if you have a chance, I love seeing setups, buffetscapes, etc.

Here are some pictures from before things started. We didn't get any action shots because we didn't think far enough ahead to get someone to take pictures. One more lesson learned!

Where did you get the labels for the sauce bottles? I like that!

Mine is growing every year. 30 total last years both big and small. But in our area, everyone with a WSM or traeger in the back yard is saying they will cater. So legal or not, when those guys jump on a wedding, or bank event, it takes away from our business.

My wife bought the paper with the circular stickers and made them herself. Since then we've done some price comparison and can actually have them done by VistaPrint cheaper than if we do them ourselves. Go figure.
