You must cook the dishes very well, make them rich and delicious such that when people tastes the food, they would want to always ask for more and you might be contacted for your services.
For example if you cook a a very delicious dishes and you serve to all the guests in the party, if 70 to 90 percent love and enjoyed the food, they would be satisfied and want to hire you for future purposes thereby your business growing.
Another thing I noticed is that some caterers in nigeria because of thier selfish interests, they would want to manage the ingredients they used for cooking because of the profit they would gain and this is very bad, your cooking services should be important than the profits you would be making so that you can get more recommendations.

Hall decoration and table setting.

As a caterer, you should be able to now top exquisite hotels and events all in town with thier prices so that whenever a clients give you a job, you would act according to thier budget to deliver the best services.

If you feel you aren’t too creative enough, you can hire someone who is to work for you.
The table setting and hall decorations must be quite appealing to the guests.
If you are a new caterer without much experience, you could visit different evens and watch the way they set up everything, this would give you insights and better knowledge of how you can improve your services.
For example if a guest enters the hall and finds one or two flaws in the decorations, he or she may report you to the sponsors of the event and this will cause an havoc for your business because you may lose future opportunities so it’s better you strive to deliver the best.

Special waiters.

After interviewing them and getting to know thier various qualities experience and skills, you would pick the best amongst them, train them and teach them the necessary ethics.
The waiters are the one delivering the main services because they are the one serving the guests directly so if they behave very well, it is an advantage for your business.

Should security personnels be included in your catering services team.

It depends on you though but I would highly recommend you include them in your team so that in any occasions you services are needed, they would serve as an advantage.
For example if there is any sort of issues that might come up, they security personnels would always be there to resolve it.

Means of transportation.
