Mobile Catering At Events - No Experience And In Full Time Employment
I'm currently in full time employment and nothing to do with the catering business, however my friend and I are wanting to make a bit of extra money.
We've come up with the idea of hiring a burger van on a day of a festival such as Party In the Park (Leeds) which attracts as much as 70,000 people. Having had no experience of doing anything like this before, do you think it's worth it?
And how would we go about renting a space at a place like that? Who do we approach for the food?
It wouldn't be a full time business goal, however if it was successful (i.e. we made a small profit) we'd probably look at doing it on a more regular basis.
We'd be more than happy to start at car boot sites however having looked at the cost of hiring a vehicle, we're not sure it would be worth it at such a venue in comparison to what a festival would attract... any advice would be much appreciated
