4 Simple Culinary Business Ideas That Can Be Done from Home
Among the many culinary business ideas you can pursue, here is a summary of some ideas that can be done simply from home:

Healthy Catering
More and more people are reluctant to cook at home, either for themselves or their families. This can be seen from the increasing number of users of online food delivery services year by year. Considering this trend, starting an online catering business is a good idea. To do this, you must promote your business through social media and upload a menu list for the upcoming days. Customers can choose which days they want to subscribe to your catering service.

In running this business, one important thing to consider is what menu items will be liked by many people. If you're unsure, you can start with healthy menus with complete nutrition. Especially now, more and more people care about the nutritional content of their food and how it's prepared.

Barbecue (BBQ)
Another culinary business idea you can try is selling barbecue meat. To run this business, you only need to buy quality meat and prepare it by marinating it in BBQ sauce. You can also sell side dishes such as white rice, vegetables, sausages, and more.

You can rent out equipment for the BBQ party to make it more authentic. The equipment could include cooking pans, stoves, and tongs for the meat. Also, provide delivery services to facilitate customers ordering BBQ meat and renting equipment from your business.

Food Hampers
On special occasions, hampers— including food hampers—become sought after by many people for various moments such as Eid al-Fitr, Chinese New Year, Christmas, and graduation ceremonies. You can take advantage of these moments to sell thematic food hampers.

For example, you can bake Eid cookies and place them in cute containers with greeting cards. Add other items to the hampers if necessary to make them look more festive. Then, you can sell them through social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram or your preferred e-commerce platform.

Finally, you can start a snack business, offering items like chips, fried snacks, French fries, or cookies. For the business model, there are several options you can choose from. First, you can sell with a pre-order system (PO). Customers order in advance, and the snacks will be delivered on agreed-upon dates. Additionally, you can package or store the snacks to keep them fresh, then deliver them directly when customers place orders.

The Range of Costs for Starting a Simple Culinary Business
To start the simple culinary businesses mentioned above, the required amount of capital varies. Generally, this capital will be used to purchase cooking equipment, raw ingredients, and monthly expenses such as internet, electricity, and water. Not to mention if you employ staff to assist in the business operations.

You can start the culinary business with capital below Rp 2 million. However, it is advisable to prepare more capital to improve service and product quality or for emergency funds. In other words, you will need capital ranging from Rp 2 million to Rp 5 million to start this simple culinary business.

Even though it can be done with modest and straightforward capital, additional capital is needed to expand the business. This is an important step, especially if your customer base keeps growing. If you are looking for additional capital, there's no need to worry because there's PermataKTA!
