In the era of the internet, the location of one’s catering company might not appear to matter that much. People are anyhow just ordering things online, and they will get their food on time, regardless of how far away the catering company is from their house, right?
That’s where a Norwegian moving company we interviewed says that people are wrong. You might be wondering why we will use a moving company as an authority on the subject of whether location matters for catering companies, but you’d be surprised at how much they know about such things from all the businesses they help move to new locations.
The moving company: Majoren Flyttebyrå
Majoren Flyttebyrå – Finn et flyttebyrå i Oslo is a key moving company in Norway’s capital, Oslo, and delivers moving services to both private people and businesses. They’ve been going strong for 10 years, and have built a good reputation as an expert in the industry.
A lot of catering companies – whether they’ve just started or they’re looking for a new place – come to Majoren Flyttebyrå when they search the web to find a moving company in Oslo, given their diverse services within private and professional moving. From their experience, there are mainly two things they can tell us about how the location of catering companies will impact their success – and that’s what we’ll show you under the next two headings.
Bad location leads to bad business
There are a number of reasons why a business should consider the location of their premises. Location affects the business in many ways, from its physical setup to its customer base and beyond. For catering companies, the location will play a vital role in their success.
Some companies may find that they give up on their catering business if they don’t take into consideration where they want to open it up.
An ideal location may be anything from close to where people live, at off-peak hours for traffic and parking, and in an area that is well-serviced by public transportation options such as bus or train routes. So when searching for your next catering company site, think about how it will be like for the customer to do business with you, and how your affordably you will be able to serve them (fuel and time cost money, you know, so the further away you are from the city center, the more you’ll have to charge the customer).
According to Majoren Flyttebyrå, many of their moving clients who put up new catering companies in the wrong place are usually quick to go bankrupt or decide that their overhead is not big enough to stay in business.
Good location leads to good business
There are many benefits for catering companies that are in a good location. For example, they are able to reach out to different locations and it is easier for them when marketing themselves because people can find them easily.
Some think about these things ahead of time, choosing a great spot on their first try. But another interesting client base of Majoren is catering companies that have first stayed in a poor location, and who have then made the decision to move their business to a better location. By moving their business, they were able to offer more services to their clients at a lower price – while at the same time reaching more people – and Majoren has never been asked to supply them with moving services again! They have stayed right where they are.
Tips to choosing a good location for your catering company
There are many factors to consider when choosing a location for your catering company. To start, it’s important to think about the type of cuisine you will be serving. If you plan on offering a wide variety of different types of food, then it would be best to look for a place that is close to many different types of restaurants and eateries. You want this because then your customers can pick something that they’re already familiar with and enjoy.
Another factor that needs to be considered is the size of your catering company. If you’re just starting out and looking for a location, then an office in an industrial building might work well because they typically come with lower rent prices than other places in town. If you’re an established company that wants to move to a better location, then you might want to own a bigger place.
