Congratulations on your start-up. There are a number of small businesses in my area (Austin) that deliver breakfast tacos/burritos to offices and other workplaces. Assuming that your business is somewhat similar, the keys are (a) having a great product and (b) building a customer base that provides repeat business -- which takes a little time (there aren't many cost effective ways to make sales grow faster for businesses like that). So if things are working now and you're clearing a profit, keep doing what you're doing (while looking for ways to reduce costs and overhead without reducng quailty) -- and growth will continue steadily.
With growth (more customers and profits) comes attention -- someone will undoubtedly check to see if you are operating legitimately and legally. So before you are unexpectedly shut down, ensure that you are. This may range from registering the business with your county to obtaining a city-issued food service permit or other certification in the locales where you prepare and sell food. There may be federal labeling requirements for some foods, too. You can research all of this on-line, or if you provide more specifics about your operation (menu, prep, sales, etc.), there are a number of members here who can probably offer detailed advice.
Welcome to the community and best wishes.
