Starting a Mobile Catering Pancake Business

by phil

I want to set up a pancake business and really want to get stuck in.I also have 12 years catering experience so I am confident.

I just wanted to ask, did you need insurance, licences etc before you started trading (while you were fixing up the van) and what insurance, licences do I need.

p.s. thank you for this great website; I have been going nuts looking for basic info.I really want to get a mobile pancake unit, looking to start off on Sunday markets moving to full time.Want to be financially independent and work for myself and build a good brand.

Just saw your post, did you start one?
Your post was back in 2012, just wondered if you did it and if so how is it going?

Pancake, Crepe Catering Business
by: David

Hi Phil,

Your idea sounds like a great business! A pancake (and maybe crepe) business this will great especially coming up to summer.

To answer your question, yes I did have normal van insurance and liability insurance before I started up in business.

You also have to register the food business with the local council and have a valid F&H certificate, which I am sure you already aware since you are already working in the catering industry.If you need more details please don't forget to sign up to my free start up guide below.

Best of luck Phil and keep moving forward!
