I come from a place where the people are known for cooking delicious food. Though I am one of the exemptions from that perception I have to admit that when it comes to fine dining the Kapampangans (people from Pampanga) had been known not just in the Philippines but in other parts of the world as well. Coincidentally some of my sisters in law were also born in Pampanga as their dad hails originally from there and the plan to start a catering business had been a favorite conversation every time they get together.
During my rare visit to my in laws, we have talked on the challenges and the rewards of starting a catering business. From research, brain storming not to mention the money and time plus the sacrifice that will be invested in putting it up, they admitted that though practicality is a given when starting a business they all agreed that they will not compromise the quality and value for their service. Since they were open to suggestions, I have mentioned how a friend who now has her own catering business visited a website and how she was able to purchase some of the supplies needed when she was starting. They immediately went online and checked it out and they have to admit they found that everything that they need were all there. Other than the convenience of it being a one time stop and shop, they also learned that they will get their money's worth since they will be dealing with people who have been in the industry for years now. And with that knowledge I felt that somehow I have contributed to that catering dream in the making. I will surely be one of the proudest people on that day this will all come true.
