Started My Mobile Catering Business - David Just Got to Say Thanks

by leigh

David, all.

I have been thinking for about starting my own catering business over 6 months as i am coming to then end of a long 23 year career in the military (nothing to do with catering though lol).

I’ve got to work for myself i reckon, no more being told what top do, and, not knowing where to start i came across your pages on here, full of advice and assistance.

Well, using your advice in regard to setting up i am now ready to go. The process has been completed in this order:

As you advised got a pitch first by walking up to places and knocking on there doors (got an establishment with 300 people work onsite 6 days per week)for less than £80 per month.

Passed L2 food handling/hygiene, joined NCASS(advisable as they are so helpful and gives you credibility) got my liability/trailer/product insurance, spoke to the local EHO and got checked.

Got a business account with the bank (just something i thought would be useful) joined bookers wholesalers, set up an account with calor and, finally bought a great 8" x 6" trailer from Wilkinson’s.

Now off I go selling quality food for a great price

No seriously just need to say thanks for giving the advice on here, and, more importantly steering people in the right direction in regard to going there own way.

It goes to show with a bit of assistance anyone can do anything they want, and to all others on here who are a little bit unsure and wavey, if I can do it then anyone can.

Many thanks and good luck to all

Hi Leigh,


Well done, you?re a great example of persistence and drive even in these times when people say you should try and save money. When in fact you should be trying to find ways to make money and produce a better lifestyle for you and your family.

More importantly you are building a skill set that you can take into any other business venture that you may want pursue in the future

As you slowly get deeper into your business you will find that you will develop an eye for more business opportunities and ideas.

Working for yourself builds self confidence, business acumen, drive ambition and a strong sense of satisfaction knowing that you are fully responsible for your financial future. This is something that many people would love to achieve for themselves.

I wish you the very best of luck with your new business and please keep us all updated to how you are doing.
