TLDR: Can I legally cater a wedding without alcohol without a license in Tennessee? I'm the sous chef of a hotel. We don't handle catering outside of our in-house banquets. One of my friends at the hotel came up to me and asked if I would be interested in catering their wedding. I really want to, but there was some confusion about what would/ would not require a catering license. Before it came up, I wasn't even aware that there was such a thing as a catering license. This would be an independent gig, not affiliated with the hotel I work at at all. There will NOT be any alcohol served at the wedding, and it's all simple stuff. So my question to you all is, do I need a license for a one time gig? I live in Tennessee if local laws apply, hopefully someone on here has been through a similar experience. Usually I would just do it, but I really don't want to deal with any legal ramifications. Of course I'm going to do my research beforehand, but i'm hoping to get a simple answer from you fine folks at CT. Thanks in advance!
