Start Mobile Catering Business - One Month In
by Elliotts Burger Bar
The most important part of your business is your customers remain customer focus at all times, and they will become regulars and do your advertising for you with recommendations. I have only been running mine for one month on an industrial estate hidden away in the yard of brand new builder’s merchants who are not generating many customers at all, maybe 5 a day.
Despite this and without any advertising except for a sandwich style blackboard outside saying "HOT FOOD" we are already averaging about £550 a week mainly from local business on the small estate.
I use quality food and keep an immaculate van; I also passed the Food Safety & Hygiene Level 2 for Catering and display the certificate in my van.
I created a loyalty card and bought a stamp off eBay and this has been a fantastic success, giving away any hot food to the value of £2.80 after getting five stamps, also my menu's are going well and are being put up in my customer’s works canteens by my customers.
I also give away tea and coffee to my regulars, this is a very low cost incentive "less than 10p" that keeps my regulars coming back everyday. I also cook everything from fresh and chat to all my customers and supply a newspaper to read, free napkins and a smile. I know it will hit £200 a day soon and i will be happy with that as i am home by 2:30pm every day.
Don’t fear the competition, set out to beat the competition by offering a better service. be the best and customers will travel for miles for your food.
I wish you every success.
