Why is Mango Rays the #CatererMotivator this week?
Their charity work is really admirable and Penny sent our copywriter Grace a t-shirt in the post. Turns out we’re very responsive to presents.
Penny! Tell us about your charity work.
At every event we’re trying to raise money for our two nominated charities: Macmillan and the Born Again children’s home in Mobasa, Kenya. Last year we did a sponsored 10k, ran our #BarkingBad campaign, held chilli juice drinking competitions and got customers to pay £1 to write and hang a wish on our Christmas wishing tree.
That's fantastic. Do you use social media to market your business?
Yep, we run competitions on Twitter and Facebook and get great response from customers and traders, and RTs from NCASS!
Always here to RT! What makes a successful event caterer?
Investing time in your staff, staying ahead of the Joneses, being sociable, being flexible, reading the NCASS magazine and never staying still!
Great answer. And how can relationships with councils help traders?
Our beautiful relationship with Manchester City Council has ended up with us working on some very prestigious events. It's definitely worth getting to know your local council!
