hi ladies i'm opening a custom catering buisness andwould like to see how interested other moms on here might be in the thought and if you have any suggestions that you could offer here the scenerio... would you hire a service that offers a variety of fresh home cooked meals that are delivered to your house hot and ready or ready to bake? as well as catering to special diets, i.e. cholesteral etc.
i'm a sahm and think it could be a fun thing to start any ideas what kind of fees i should be charging, all iteams would come in lasagna size foil, if hot. there would be all kinds of dishes and different menus to choose from. .... any other ideas i'm not thinking of? i'm going to start small then perhaps lease a kitchen or what not, i have my food handlers card. and a freind who'll assist me with legalitys..

We have a custom catering and home delivery place in our town. Their business is booming! I can't find their website at the moment, but I will try to find it tomorrow. Are you going to be doing this out of your home? If so, check with you state laws to see about kitchen licensing. If you are going to be doing it at a kitchen location, then I thought this would be neat- http://www.letseatdinner.com/expect/index.php
Each station has a different recipe for the customer to make. You would provide the ingredients and they would make it to take home and freeze. Then you would clean up the dishes. I love to cook but HATE cleaning the kitchen. If this was offered in my area, I would definitely use this service. Good Luck with your business.
