If you've been running a restaurant for a while and are looking for ways to expand, you may be thinking of starting to offer catering services. Your loyal customers who have come to love your restaurant food will surely enjoy being able to order it off-site for parties and gatherings, too. Here are a few tips that should serve you well as you start to expand into catering.
Don't offer everything on your current menu.
These days, there are so many different styles of restaurants. There are fast food restaurants where you can grab mostly pre-made food on the go. Fast-casual restaurants have somewhat more complex menus, but you still order at a counter. There are typical, sit-down restaurants where each person orders their own dish off the menu. And then, there are family-style restaurants where you order dishes for the table to share. The last type of restaurant may not be the most popular, but it's a good style to consider if you're about to open a restaurant.
