Because your business contains food and it is the hardest thing to get people satisfied with your food. But don’t worry, we have also stated the solution. And the common challenges you will be facing are;
Managing one event is easy but you won’t be handling one event at one time. Of course, you have a kind of business that will take off very soon and you will be managing more than one business at one time. And the challenge that comes with success is the management. Since you will be handling more than one event at one time, it is evident that you won’t be able to stay at two places at one time. Sometimes, you will be hearing clients telling that this is less and that is extra and some clients can get very cranky if things are not done according to them. What you need to do is hire a manager or hire a senior manager who will have assistant managers under them. You must be wondering how are you going to pay these people, well, there are people who work freelance. They just come for one event, take their payment and get available for the next event, such freelancers charge less. You can give the best catering services to increase your market reputation.
People take advantage of the caterers, don’t get any other ideas but what people do is stay late at the events and that consumes a lot of time of caterers. For example, your client has said that they will close the event by 10 pm and during the event, you are seeing that people are not leaving by 10:30 pm and they are still there and hours have passed by. And you cannot be rude to them by asking again and again and still you get paid the same. What you can do is tell them prior that after 11 pm, they will be charged extra.
