Working as a freelance caterer, or having your own catering business, is never going to be easy. Chances are you spend lots of time on the lookout for new work, which will help keep your business ticking over. If you are able to secure ongoing contracts, this takes away a lot of the work for you.
In order to do this, you will need to partner up with other people and organisations. They may be wedding venues, pubs that offer food or corporate hire venues that need lunch supplying to their customers. There are many profitable relationships you can form for your business – just make sure people are aware that longer term contracts are an option. Even if a venue doesn’t use your services exclusively, it may be possible that they can recommend you to the people who book. Make sure they know the quality of your food and offer samples if you think it will help.
