Catering is an appealing career, and a career that has a great do-it-yourself philosophy. However, before you start catering, you’ll need a few things. In fact, nothing will stop a catering business faster than being unprepared. But, if you know what you need, you’ll have a great catering business and be cooking for big parties in no time.

A Food Supplier

One thing caterers definitely need is a supplier – you can’t cook what you don’t have! The first place to look is retail grocery stores for great deals. However, you’re better off finding a wholesaler, as this will keep your overall food cost down and your profit margin up. After you’ve found your wholesaler, try to establish a rapport with the key people in charge. This way you’ll get quick service and special deals.

Caterers’ Tools – Transportation, Cookware & More

Next, you’ll need the proper tools of the trade. One of these tools is either a van or SUV for transporting the food and crew members. A van/SUV is especially important for bigger orders. Other tools include big coolers and big warmer trays to haul in your big vehicle. You’ll also need to provide your own cookware and serving dishes – it’s not safe to rely on your venue or host to provide these things.


There’s one more important thing you need: familiarity with portable kitchens. AAA Rents & Events in Los Angeles boasts a complete kitchenware inventory available to rent, from stoves and burners to specialty buffet serving pieces right down to the smallest silverware piece, and they can get you set up if you can do the cooking. If you are adaptable to any kitchen in any setting, you may find yourself in high demand in no time.

Without these things, you won’t last long as a caterer. But with quality supplies on hand, the right tools and an adaptable skill set, you could be well on your way to running a successful catering business!
