Buying or Leasing a Vehicle
You'll eventually need your own vehicle to transport prepped food and other supplies to clients and other off-premise locations. A spacious car can be used for business purposes.
Check with your accountant about tax credits for hybrid vehicles and call your state's motor vehicle department about getting commercial plates for your vehicle. Consult with your insurance agent about insuring your vehicle. When your business really grows, you may want to think about buying a refrigerated truck, or a specially outfitted truck designed for catering.
To promote your brand, order custom decals with your business name, logo, and phone number, and put them on your vehicle on both sides. You can design your own and order decals online or find a local business who can help you in the yellow pages.
If your concept involves the incorporation of a vehicle, then you'll have to rework your business plan to include the price of the vehicle and its refurbishing and outfitting. Just like renting a commercial space, carefully look over a purchase or leasing agreement and read the fine print.
