Catering is simply everything that has to do with providing cooking or feeding services at strategic places which could include hotels, public houses, events, weddings, and parties, or other locations and this is usually based on a previously agreed contract. It also involves making food and beverages available for events. However, it is imperative to get the proper understanding that running a catering business is much different from running an event planning and management business. A caterer should be prestigious, and in doing this ensures that he/she acquires all the necessary facilities and expertise to give quality services to all prospective customers.

Modern fast food restaurants have experienced rapid growth over the past decade of almost 30% year-on-year to reach total revenue of around N400 million from around 800 outlets in 2009, this shows that the market is wide and it keeps expanding daily and you can setup you catering services to make money daily.

Little capital is required for startup. In fact, it is very possible to start a catering business from home without any money. Truth be told, you do not even need an office, all you need to do is pitch for a contract and make use of your client's payment to rent all you need to run your first delivery. Unlike several other businesses, there is no entry requirement to start the business. Anyone can indulge in the business, even students.

You need a good advert that will entice potential customers, your advert must be inviting, must be well branded. You will need to print complimentary cards, flyers to share on every occasion or gathering you attend. Treating your clients very well will surely make them introduce you to their families and friends. Online too, is another avenue that you can sell your catering services.

Venturing into the catering business can fetch you up to N1,500,000 on average annually. Income for a caterer was N600,000 as of 2013, according to the job website Indeed.

Catering falls into the service industry and thus it provides you the platform to showcase your talent and creativity in line with cooking and service delivery. If you enjoy cooking and entertaining, you can start a small catering business. These types of companies can be run from your home

No matter the form you want the business to take, whether a small daily catering business or organizing huge extravaganzas for large gatherings periodically during the year, you can be sure that you will still be raking in some good money after every day of business.
