Working in the catering and events industry, you are going to need some good contacts in order to get the best work. It’s competitive – everyone will be going after similar jobs in your marketplace. Having a close working relationship with an events planner will really help.
Much of the work in this industry comes from referrals and word of mouth – people will tell theit friends if they have had a particularly good wedding buffet, or if they have had excellent service when looking for someone to cater a party last minute. This is how you will grow your business and get more work.
If you are affiliated with an events manager, they can do some of this hard work for you, passing on your details to their clients. It’s important you have a website and/ or brochure so when people want to find out more about you, they have somewhere to go.
