The food space isn’t one going out of demand anytime soon. Why? Because a good meal or food is essential to any human’s existence.
This industry is a gift that keeps on giving. It is essential to understand your industry, customers' needs, trends, and how to stand out.
Now, a lot of people just decide one day to open a food outlet or go into catering without properly carving out the roadmap to accomplishing the one very important thing which is offering quality services, and meals, building trust with your customers and standing out because it is a saturated market but you can still grow your business and be exceptional.
Now someone might ask what creativity has got to do with food? It has a whole lot, because colors, flavors, spices, and all those little things are what differentiates you from the next vendor, caterer, or chef. It would be best if you experimented a lot as someone who operates in this industry, the process of making meals teaches you to be mindful and push for mastery.
You cannot repeat the same patterns or menu at every party, every order, or even on your business page, you must be able to create new dishes and food-related experiences. If you do not necessarily carve a niche for yourself at the very least let your business processes be relatable to your customers.
Even in the kind of content you create or post on your website, social channels, etc let it position you as an expert and someone who understands that customer satisfaction starts with a journey that builds up to the final consumption of the meal.
As a business owner in Nigeria or even the continent at large, you must be creative with your numbers as well.
