Online Catering Degrees and Careers

Would you like to earn a living by cooking for people? Does the idea of opening a restaurant sound too risky? If you answered "yes" to both of these questions, you might want to consider catering school, which may eventually lead to a promising catering job.

Opening a restaurant is risky. Most new restaurants fail to turn a profit and go out of business within a few years. Catering is much less risky. You don't need to spend as much money on overhead expenses as you would when opening a restaurant.

You can start small by catering parties for friends. All you'll need for this initial investment is cooking ware and recipes, which you probably already have. As word spreads about your skills and you start making some money, you may invest a bit on marketing and advertising, which will help your catering business grow even faster.

If you want to become a caterer, you can learn both the culinary and business skills necessary to catering at a catering school. Another way to learn the business is to get a catering job and learn from experience.
