Be focused on the niche. If your niche is supplying Chinese foods in Indonesia, or supplying African foods in Paris, France or supplying Nigerian dishes in the United States. Keep it.

There are many Africans in the US for example who still want to take African dishes in American soil and there are many Europeans in Asia who still want to take European dishes in Asian soil. Choosing such niches can be effective for your food business. When you are known for a particular niche, your customers will come to you based on that niche.
Select a location
What is the location of the food business? Is it where people can see you? Is it where people move around?, or is it in some hidden place? Select a suitable location for your food business. If you are exporting abroad, is your warehouse accessible to international merchants? Select a place that is accessible. The place should be visible with people moving around. Another thing to consider about place is space. Choose a space that is large enough to accommodate people.
Go for reliable vendors
Go for reliable vendors. The vendors should offer you quality ingredients, that’s suitable for your customers. They should supply the dish on time and the daily supplies should be available. Check out various vendors.
Keep both quantity and quality
When serving your customers, dish out food that is a reasonable size and don’t make it too small for your customers. Make the food delicious too, that’s keeping both quantity and quality. When your customers start coming in large numbers, do not try to make the food smaller for money, this might discourage some people. Serve your dishes in reasonable sizes. Use spices, seasonings, and quality ingredients. Various restaurants discourage people with small dishes in their attempt to make more money. Ask yourself, that thing you are giving to people for a dish, when you take it, how is it for you? People visit restaurants that fill up their stomachs, and at the same time serve delicious food. Let your customers come first, when you are making a decision about your food business. Remember, customers first.
Packaging and preservation
Some people that visit your restaurant might want to take the food with them as they leave? How do you package it for them? Remember to keep the food fresh for your customers. Don’t keep serving them a dish you cooked 3 weeks ago. Keep it fresh. Modern presentation techniques can help to keep up freshness.
