Catering Franchises 

The UK spent a whopping £29.4 Billion just on takeaways according to research conducted by vouchercodes the online discount voucher company so it appears there is no shortage of potential business with any food related franchises.

Catering franchises are not just fast food though they cover a huge variety of different sectors including restaurants, corporate catering, bar & pub franchises, ice cream and frozen yogurt, mobile food businesses, sandwich businesses and even wine bar and dessert franchises. The diversity of catering & food related franchises is what makes it very interesting to potential franchise seekers and it provides variety in both sectors but also customers and even they way you trade, ie from a mobile food van to a high end restaurant.

The type of people that would probably be suited to catering franchises and other food related opportunities would be foodies. You may not be required to have any formal catering experience of qualifications, although that would depend on the franchise as all franchise businesses will provide full training & support both initially and ongoing with your new franchise business.
