Include a personal background. There are many good reasons to start a catering business and you should let readers know why you are drawn to this industry above all others. Outline your working history and attach any relevant reference letters as an appendix to the plan.
Keep in mind that even though the sample that I'm going to present to you here is effective, you have to work on it diligently so that you can get the results that it promises. The first step you need to take is to register your small business company. In here, you need to have your accounts established for payment and your site as well as social media pages established so that you can integrate them together in the near future. This may require a good amount of time and effort but once you get this done, it's done and you no longer have to do it over again.
Background : Include some information on the catering industry at both the national and local levels. Take note of industry trends and try to forecast future developments.
So, in the end, I encourage you to realign whatever preconceived notions you may have of the business planning process and view it not as a daunting task or a necessary evil of running a successful business. Instead, view it as yet another opportunity, the chance to help make your dreams into a reality by mapping out the needs of your business, your customers, your employees, your suppliers, your community...and yourself!
