Kent-based food safety consultancy CaterSafe is offering the benefit of its vast experience to budding new ‘foodpreneurs’ wishing to realise their dream of opening their very own restaurant.
Starting a food business can be notoriously difficult due to the time, dedication and commitment involved, meaning fledgling operators often miss out crucial steps that would set them up for success because they are so focused on opening their doors.
With this in mind, Catersafe Consultants has created a 10-point plan for starting a food business that offers expert advice in areas such as marketing, food hygiene, business registration and customer service to give entrepreneurs the best possible start when entering the restaurant industry.
Catersafe has extensive experience in the catering industry and is a leading provider for food hygiene courses, food-based e-learning courses and consultancy services.
CaterSafe’s Sam Turner explained: “We hear of so many unique and different restaurant offerings opening their doors and are really disappointed to find out that they are facing major barriers later on down the line because they’ve missed a vital part of their business plan, business registration or marketing strategy.
“To help fledgling new businesses, we’ve created a simple and practical 10-step guide to help new business owners overcome these challenges before they create bigger problems and to give them the critical elements they’ll need to focus on before opening for business.”
The guide includes everything from tips on perfecting signature dishes to labelling and legal advice, and is free to access on CaterSafe’s website.
