How to create a top tier catering restaurant in a hurry
Posted On June 20, 2021
By now you’ve probably heard that top tier restaurants are the most desirable spots for a high-end restaurant to open in New York City.
But what if you want to open a top-tier catering restaurant on a short-term basis?
Well, that’s where the new NYC food-and-beverage-focused website Fresh Start comes in.
Fresh Start lets you create a catering menu that can be served at a restaurant as early as six weeks in advance, and then it takes over the entire restaurant after the six-week window closes.
The new site also allows you to set up your own menu and place your own ads.
Fresh Start even allows you set up a pre-order system for food items and services, so you can start off serving food before the restaurant opens.
Here’s a quick rundown of what you’ll need to do to get started with Fresh Start:The Fresh Start website is free to sign up, and all you have to do is log into the site.
Once you have a Fresh Start account, you can use it to schedule and manage your catering menus.
Fresh start will even let you create custom menu options, and set a time for your catering items to be ready to be served.
You’ll be able to schedule your catering events and your catering hours in real time, so Fresh Start can help you set the right catering schedule for your restaurant.
Once a catering order is placed, Fresh Start will send you a delivery confirmation email that includes your catering menu, restaurant information, and pricing.
Fresh Takeover will then schedule your delivery.
To keep things simple, Fresh TakeOver will only accept catering orders for restaurants that are within a certain radius of your restaurant, but you can create more than one catering order.
If you don’t have a location that you want your catering order to take place at, you’ll have to contact Fresh Take over, and they will send out a confirmation email to your restaurant with the location details.
Here are a few of the features that Fresh Take Over is promising:A custom-designed catering menuYou can set a specific date for your meals to be prepared (up to 60 days)A pre-booked deliveryThe time to place your catering orders is also customizable.
You can set your delivery date to be the same day as your catering event or to be a few days after the restaurant is open.
This allows you the option of choosing a special time, such as on a Thursday night, to schedule the catering items for delivery, so that your catering is ready to go before your guests arrive.
When your catering program is over, FreshTakeover will send your catering list to your local catering company, and it will send it back to you.
You will be able then to select and cancel your catering, or you can add additional catering items.
You can also customize your catering selections, such that you can customize your menu and add your own catering services.
You’ll also be able set up coupons to sell your catering services, and Fresh Takeovers coupons will be sent out as a prepaid message to the address of your catering plan.
You will be given a unique coupon code that you’ll be allowed to redeem through the website.
Once you have redeemed your coupons, they’ll be sent to the email address you provided on your Fresh Take Takeover registration.
Once the delivery is complete, you will receive an email with the invoice for the catering services you paid for.
Once your catering has been completed, FreshStart will send a confirmation to your FreshTakeOver registration.
Once your invoice is cleared, Freshtakeover will return your catering to you in the mail.
Fresh Takeover lets you take your catering up to 60 business days, but this can vary depending on the size of your company.
The minimum order size for FreshTakeovers is one catering item, and that’s how you’ll see your catering start to ramp up.
