After your licenses and a copy of Quickbooks? Probably a Serv Safe class.

Cambro? Heating Cabinet? Monster mobile vending truck?

Is it a full service operation or a drop off/pick up type deal?

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

If you need to ask a this question then I would a say a book about catering would be the first purchase. -And yes, it was the first thing I bought LOL

I agree, I think it would help to know what you have now and a little more detail on your intentions of what your business model is going to look like.
