    Hello All,
    I have taken a what some people would call, a disturbing interest in cooking. FoodTV, etc.

    I recently certified through Serve Safe and have legally created a catering business in the state of PA. I have no location yet and plan to test the waters out of my home part time on weekends.

    Has anyone done this before and grew to a large success? If so, how did you break away from your full time job to make it supportable?

    Thanks Much!!

    First of all, Welcome! You've come to a great site.

    Second, since you want to start a catering business, you might want to post your question on the Catering forum. Lots of experienced folks there, and very willing to help.

    Good luck!

    Buddy,
    Good question... and interesting venture. Like Suzanne suggested, I am going to move your question over to the Catering Forum... you will probably get some more input there.
    Welcome aboard!! And best of luck with your venture.
