THE catering business is good business, according to the proprietors of Beaumonde Catering as it moved to appoint business brokers last week to find an investor to help support the business.
Beaumonde Catering director Mark Dimmitt said business had been tough between 2001 and late last year but the hard days were past them.
“Business is going very good at the moment,” he said.
Mr Dimmitt said the move to find an investor to put in at least $670,000 would provide the company with greater flexibility in its operations and allow more time for he and fellow director and head chef Gary Payne to pursue other business interests.
He said that the company’s directors wanted to remain involved in Beaumonde Catering.
“I would sell the majority share but I do not want to leave and the current directors don’t want to leave,” Mr Dimmitt said.
“We’ve put it before brokers but we want to stay here in the business.
“We can continue without the investment but it would make it easier with investment.”
Mr Dimmitt said the company was in the process of recruiting for a new head chef.
He said the move would allow Mr Payne to concentrate on Beaumonde Catering and its function centre Altitude 9’s major events.
“Gary doesn’t want to leave here (Beaumonde) but he wants to work on other projects,” Mr Dimmitt said.
“He will do the bigger events and focus more on our big dinners.”
He said he and Mr Payne were considering setting up a blue cheese manufacturing business.
