I just had a couple of questions.
For a little background, my mom has been running a catering/personal chef business for the past 3 or so years. Her clients include a few local businesses that she makes and delivers lunch to, and a few families she cooks dinner for. I help out with all the cooking I can, but I leave most of it to her as she has been through culinary school and has many, many more years of cooking experience under her belt. I still really want to help her out all I can though!
Anyways, she is wanting to expand her business a little bit to include some one-on-one cooking lessons. I was wondering if anyone has had any luck marketing a small catering business locally. I've been doing a bit of research the past week or so and come across a few marketing resources, but I thought I’d run it by some people that might actually have some practical experience in the cooking industry!
I’m already planning on making her a little blog and I’ve set her up with a facebook page and twitter account. I was also thinking about maybe buying her some signage to stick on her car, but I’m not really sure how effective things like that are. Has anyone had any luck with these kinds of things in the past?:
Sorry if this got a little long, but I don’t really know where to start with getting this going! Just wanting to surprise my mom for her birthday with a bunch of new things to help her out. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!
