Finding a Fruits Supplier For Your Tropical Fruit Catering Business
When starting your own home based catering business, or if you already have a business and are thinking about expanding your menu options to include tropical fruits, then you will want to look into finding the right fruits supplier for you. Many small catering companies start out by purchasing bulk supplies from a wholesaler that specializes in fruits and vegetables. This is usually a very cheap way to get started. While it may seem like an easy option, wholesalers can carry fruit that is not as safe or fresh as Florida-grown products. You also do not have to worry about a long supply since they will deliver the product directly to your customers, which cuts down on your initial setup costs.
Another popular type of fruits for a catering company are the imported ones. If you have been trying to figure out where to get your fruits and vegetables, this could be a great place to start. Since Florida is so well known for having some of the best fresh fruits in the country, many people start there when they decide to travel. Getting fresh Brazilian cherries for blue morning is easier than you think. Fresh pineapple is something you can get almost anywhere, and they often have it frozen which is even better. Just make sure that when you’re buying berries and pineapple that you find a good quality Florida-grown product and don’t settle for anything else.
When you are choosing a wholesaler, it’s important that you choose one that will work with you as a provider. Most will give you a discount on large orders and will give you the option to purchase larger quantities at a lower price. Make sure you get your hands on a few different quotes before you make a decision. You never know how much you’re going to save until you compare a few different suppliers. If you do enough research, you should be able to find a great wholesaler who is offering products that you’re going to be happy with.
