  1. Erle, Great advice! Everyone automatically thinks that they have to lower their price because we’ve been programmed that when volume increases the price per unit gets lower. Catering is a different kettle of fish. Being known as the lowest priced, budget caterer in town is detrimental to building your catering business. People are proud to shout to everyone that they hired the best caterer but they are ashamed and try to conceal the fact that they hired the cheapest caterer. You need word of mouth to build up a catering business thus promoting how special and over the top your services are instead of engaging in price wars with your competitors is a much better way to grow.
