verybody loves holiday dinners. NOT everybody can cook holiday dinners!
Often, great intentions become burnt turkeys, hard bread and lumpy gravy and
then the alarm bells ring - RUSH to the supermarket or store for take-away dinners!
Not so bad if it's just the family that's coming for dinner, but what if you
have guests? Wouldn't it be easier if you just had what I call 'automatic dinners'?
That's when someone else cooks and all I do is eat!

Food small business ideas or Home-made Holiday Dinner
If you've got lots of time on your hands, no where to go and you're a good
cook, why not help to make someone else's dinner a memorable and tasty one?
You'll want to let your neighbours or friends know that you can cook a full
family dinner and all they have to do is come pick it up an hour before serving
time. Depending on their needs, you could also rent them the necessary serving
dishes and cutlery - at a fee of course or you could include it into the overall
costing. When they're done with dinner, you could pick up the dishes the following
day, but make sure you keep count of each item lest you start losing them slowly
over the course of time. Another reminder - you might want to consider having
your customers place a deposit when they make their order. This is to cover
your raw products costs. This gives you a chance to actually meet your customer
in case they turn out to be a no-show, leaving you with dinner for ten and no
one to eat it! Also, ask that the remainder of your fee be paid upon delivery
of the food. Your product isn't something that can be returned the following
day if you get what I mean. If you can get this business off the ground, you'll
never be idle during the holidays and you can always count on extra money for
those nice little Christmas goodies you've always wanted.
