FOR YOU
• Carving the catering market
• Who is the caterer ( questions to ask before hiring a caterer)
• Mission statement and purpose
• Stakeholders
• Strategic vision
• SWOT analysis
The Catering Market
• A caterer’s market is the group of all customers in a geographic
service area who have unmet needs, wants or demands requiring
food and beverage service.
• It is extremely difficult and unreasonable to except one caterer to
service the entire market range of current and potential customers
in need or want of food, beverages and related services.
Carving the Catering Market
• The caterer must carve or segment the whole market of customers into smaller
Pieces or niches.
• Segmenting the whole market into niches requires the caterer to identify
customers with similar needs or wants and group them together.
• This Enables the caterer to decide how to best build the business to satisfy that
specific Group.
• To help the caterer identify the specific niche to pursue, a fundamental exercise
would be to invest serious time answering a few key questions.
Key questions used to identify a market niche.
1. What kind of catering can be executed right now?
2. What kind of food and service can be provided right now to meet and exceed the
customer’s expectations?
3. What quality standards can be created and maintained in both food and service?
4. What kind of food preparation skills does the caterer have now?
5. What are the caterer’s culinary skills and their relationship to menu design?
6. What kind of equipment does the caterer have?
7. Who will assist the caterer in these functions?
8. What is the skill level of the staff?
9. How fast or slow does the caterer want to grow?
•The purpose of answering these questions is twofold.
• First, a careful analysis Enables the caterer to define
who they are today.
• Second, the answers will provide The caterer with an
understanding of what kind of professional
development will be needed to provide continuous
improvement in operations.
WHO IS THE CATERER?
• How caterers define who they are begins with
• an analysis of their capabilities as A caterer and
• how they can satisfy customers’ needs and wants.
• This is a starting Point to establish the right kind of catering business.
• One challenge is to identify the market niche the caterer is most
comfortable Servicing
• This niche will determine the customers’ wants and needs to be satisfied
by the caterer’s business.
Issues important to the caterer
include:
1. Do they specialize only in on-premise catering?
2. Will the caterer specialize in off-premise catering?
3. Will the caterer attempt to position the business as both an on- and off
premise catering operation?
4. Will the caterer be able to compete in the social market?
5. Can the caterer satisfy the needs of a corporate account?
6. Will the caterer try to satisfy the needs of both corporate and social catering
customers?
Mission Statement or Purpose

potential Clients.
• The company’s mission is written in a statement which defines the sole
purpose Of why the caterer is in business.
• The mission statement identifies who the Caterer is and communicates what
the caterer can do for all potential customers.
• This statement of purpose is the foundation of the organization.

business today?” It may also reflect what the caterer plans to

Strengths

caterer’s Strengths and a precise customer profile based on the
identification of unmet needs, wants, and demands is required.
• To effectively communicate these strengths to the market, a mission
statement is created to define the caterer’s purpose.
• Strategically growing the business allows for the proper mix of financial
and personal activities correlated to its long-term success.
• One strategic management Tool used to match business strengths to
market opportunities is SWOT Analysis. SWOT is an acronym for
identifying internal strengths and weaknesses, and external opportunities
and threats.
