Do you love going to the market and are you someone who's organized and meticulous?
Can you take pressure and work to deadlines? Here's an opportunity that's not

do it for them. You will basically supply restaurants and caterers with cleaned
and cut vegetables and meat. You'll need to get your supplies wholesale from
the market or farmers. You don't want to go through a middleman because they
would already have added their mark-up which translates to higher costs for
you. Then you'll need to clean and cut the vegetables, fish, chicken and meat
according to your customers' specifications. You'll need to invest in quality

This business will succeed if you are prompt in delivering to your customers
while maintaining freshness. If you can do that, your customers save a lot in

a week, so there's no such thing as an off day. This means you'll ideally have
a partner or family member helping you out. You'll want to have a wide network
of alternate suppliers in case your regular source has problems delivering.
All in all, it's a great business if you have a large family that can pitch
in to help!
