To attract caterers to your web site/system, you MUST offer the caterer some "benefit" that the "caterer" perceives as valuable. And the opportunity to "bid" on potential opportunities is, IMHO, not very "valuable" to many caterers!
I've used a similar service that alerts me to opportunities in my area on a "buy a lead" basis (not a bid basis) and less than 1% of the listed leads over the past 4-6 years seem to be worth purchasing. And these are "pre-qualified leads"! Fortunately, it costs me NOTHING to be a member, it costs me something ONLY if and when, a prospect meets my minimum qualifications and attracts my interest.
IMHO, a majority of successful caterers do not bid to supply food, they are professionals that offer custom services that satisfy client needs and wants.
