Out catering company is quite young and while we are funding the entire thing by ourselves we have recently thought of grabbing a very small ad in the local AT&T Yellow Pages.

Cost is very cheap for a relatively small ad - $23/Month.

My question is have any other catering companies done this and have you seen success? I am very curious to know if its even worth it for us to do this.

Thanks in advance!

I decided to due found that many people will just due a search on their computer instead of opening up their phone book. It is around 50 a month and I have had great success with it.

I have thrown away every phone placed on my porch for the last 5 years. I second the internet ( option. If you think about it, the boss says to his/her admin assistant, "Find me a caterer" and that assistant either calls some they know of goes online. That said, there will always be someone who takes the phonebook option and $23 a month is pretty cheap. Perhaps do both options.... wasn't much help was I?
