              Although I cannot give you all the necessary steps to start your catering business, I have two pieces of advice for you:

              First, ba aware that in NJ the unions are strong and they are tough competition. So do some research on them.

              Second, have an informative and productive website. As someone who works in a web development and search marketing company, I can tell you that a good website that your customers can easily find might be the best marketing tool for a small business. Additionally, from personal experience I can tell you it is hard to find a catering business with a good website. This might give you a competitive advantage.

              Best of luck with your new business.
