Cater For You has been running since 2003 when a web design customer asked me to set up a disposable catering supplies business. After a while, the business was moved from Somerset to Buckinghamshire with a new business partner and developed from there. Initially the site was used as a testing ground for new web design techniques and SEO, it has now grown to a company employing 14 people and a turnover in excess of £3.5 million.
As Director and part owner of the business I am responsible for setting the strategic direction and implementing the strategy to achieve our business objectives. The development of this business means I am no longer just a web designer, but I also understand most areas of business and what it takes to build a successful business. Take a look at the two busiest web sites – both built using Actinic / Sellerdeck:
The key business areas for Cater For You Ltd are:
The business has been fantastic for me to learn an awful lot about web design, managing, strategy, photography and much more. I’m extremely grateful for the team, led by Mark, who continue to take the business from strength to strength.
Despite only launching a new web site 3 years ago which is still performing really well, we have spec’d another site using Magento 2 which will give us a lot more functionality and ease of use and the customer new features such as being able to log in and view their ordering history. We should also be able to launch the site across Europe over the next couple of years on this platform and using our existing delivery networks.
