Starting a catering service requires some initial investment to get supplies, an equipped kitchen, advertising, and other business startup expenses. Of course, you don’t need to start big, so you won’t have too much startup costs, but it will be a good thing if you could find someone else to pay the initial money for you.
It isn’t a dream. With the right business grants you can make it happen. Every year the US government simply distributes millions of dollars in the form of free business grants. The government does little to advertise this as it would not be to its benefit to have everyone come to it for cash, but once you know where to look, it’s easy to take your share of the pie.
Business grants come in various forms: federal, state, or local. Every grant has its own criteria and purpose. The problem is knowing where to look. A catering service will be great for some of these business grants.
To get a grant for your catering service you need to know how to write a killer application. You see, you’re not the only one who wants to get their hands on some of the government’s money. Competition is high. Not that this should deter you from applying to grants because most people have no idea how to write a good application, so that if you just know how to stand out, you’ll be able to capitalize on some of that free grant money.
The great thing about grants is that you never ever have to give them back. As long as you use them to develop your business, the money is yours to keep. It’s a great way to get the initial catering service investment. Take advantage of it.
