Start a Kid Party Food Catering Business from Home

What you will be doing.  Kids love to eat. If it tastes good, they will dive right in. As a caterer for kid’s parties, you will provide that scrumptious fare so that parents have one less thing to worry about. The field is wide open since kids have parties from a young age all the way into their teens..

How to start.  Kid’s parties are fun. The biggest headache next to thinking of fun games is the food. Some kids are picky. As a party caterer for kids, it will be up to you to be familiar with popular party foods for various ages. With new trends come new likes for different age groups.

Specializing in little kid parties or teen parties fine tunes you business. Your list of recipes and party foods is not so broad and this also provides an opportunity to be creative with some dishes. In your business plan, specify how you will run the business. For example, use a different menu for themed parties. With set menus, parents can choose a preset menu or pick from a list of items that have no specific category.

Starting costs.  Your biggest cost will be food. Caterers are responsible for setup and cleanup. For the themed party idea, table clothes, plates, napkins, and any accessories for the food table will need to match the theme. This can run into big dollars depending on how much inventory you want to handle. Tables can be rented from a party supply company so you don’t have to store those in your garage.

Keep the menu to a minimum to cut starting costs. The kitchen will need to be outfitted and inspected since you are selling foods made there. Fines result in businesses that operate without the proper permits. Caterers can spend about $2,000 or less getting started. The best thing about food is that it doesn’t need to be purchased until you are ready to cook it. Dry and canned items can be purchased ahead of time so they are always in stock.

Skills needed.  Cooking skills are helpful. To keep people coming back, the food has to be great-tasting. Prepare a few signature dishes that are special orders. These will set your business apart from the rest.

Good customer service is important. At the party, you are catering to the guests. Provide them what they need in a timely and professional manner so parents will be happy. The kids will love you as long as you keep the goodies coming.

Marketing.  Daycare centers, schools, gyms, and other places that kids frequent make great places to advertise. Slip a few flyers into mailboxes in the neighborhood. Advertise at church in the bulletin and in the Yellow Pages. Local ad magazines that are circulated throughout the city offer a cheaper route than the Yellow Pages with results that are just as good.

Write articles on cooking for the local newspaper and trade magazines. Ask to cater youth group activities at church to get the word out about the business. Oh, and don’t forget the business cards. They come in handy in many places.
