Grow Your Business Workshop: Catering
growOn Tuesday, September 17 from 5:30-7:30pm, Goodwin Proctor will be leading a workshop on how to start and grow a Catering business. When Haley House Bakery Café began, we had no plan to develop a Catering operation. Eight years later, we are proud to report that Catering is the largest part of our food business. This workshop will teach you what you need to know to have a Catering operation yourself. The workshop is free but space is limited so call early to reserve a spot.
