After many successful years of owning and managing a catering business from her home, Diane Svenwol Olson generously shares her experiences with those who would like to do the same. The author offers valuable advice on operating a consistently first-class business one that's on the top of clients' lists and is frequently recommended for quality service, creativity, and helping to create a memorable, fun-filled event. Over the years, she catered parties ranging from twenty-five people to a thousand, at weddings, showers, business affairs, and home parties in such venues as churches, private residences, large corporations, Veterans of Foreign Wars halls, and even Soldier Field in Chicago. In this easy-to-read and understand helpful guidebook, Diane Olson shepherds readers through her very busy workweek...the customer meeting, shopping, preliminary cooking and baking, decorating, set-up, and much much more! "Not everyone is suited to this kind of work," writes the author, "but I never forget the fun part of the work and meeting people years later who remind me of stories I had forgotten." With that in mind, here is a loving look at the personal and professional accomplishments of a successful businesswoman and tireless entrepreneur.
