Weekends – our client only chooses work close to home such as providing packed lunches for charity bike rides, family day out festivals or corporate BBQs for clients such as Lidl. The business is located across from a catering equipment hire company which he has a good relationship with, he uses equipment when requested to cater for full day or weekend corporate trading events where he can provide breakfast, lunches and evening menus.
