Catering is a multi-layered business model with many moving parts. How well oiled is your machine? Manging these complex entities require your attention in running a successful business. Are you really making money? Having a full calendar doesn't guarantee profitability (although your sales team would like you to think that). Food costs, beverage costs, vendor costs, payroll, inventory and equipment management (just to name a few) can get out of control without you even knowing.
It's all about the numbers. Numbers don't lie. Emotions do. Passion and hard work do not guarantee your catering company is profitable. Often they create the opposite result. Take control today.
