Inner Circle Catering

 

THE CLIENT

Jason grew up in the pub, hotel and restaurant trade, and later embarked on a teaching career where he spent 20 years as a science teacher.

 

Jason was passionate about his work as a teacher, but changes at his school meant he could no longer see the impact he was making and he was ready for a change.

 

Jason has a natural instinct for food and working in the kitchen, and when hosting a dinner party one evening, a friend said, “why don’t you do this for a living?”. That’s where Jason’s journey began, and his catering business Inner Circle was born.

 

Inner Circle is the completely bespoke Catering service specialising in Hog Roasts, Paellas, BBQ’s, Dinner Parties, Events (Hot and Cold Buffets a number of different styles), Takeaway, large group food orders, pub/cafe/restaurant and shop supplier, GF and other specialist diets.

 

The best pies you will ever eat!

 

“I was a complete rabbit in the headlights, I knew what good food was, but I’d had no formal training. I had no idea how it was going to go, I just knew I could cook well and create”.

 

THE CHALLENGE

Based in his home kitchen, Jason starting cooking for small gigs, buffets for birthday parties, hog roasts and BBQs, and it became apparent he needed a bigger kitchen – he had to find one and that was his first big challenge. Then along came more and more hurdles. Jason, no longer taking a teachers’ full- time salary, faced the financial challenges of making ends meet in his new venture. Cash flow became an issue, as every event meant a huge amount of outlay on ingredients, staff and insurance, and this swallowed up all his savings. Making no money – he was ready to give up.

 

The stress was taking its toll not only on Jason, but also on his home life, and he was forced to take on a part-time job.

 

In April 2016 a good friend and existing member of BBB Success Groups, suggested Jason should join BNI, which is where Jason met Tracey. “At this point I was completely lost, and ready to throw the towel in. I just had a complete financial block, and I’d had enough with the stress, but Tracey dragged me back, she really believed in me, and I trusted her.”

 

Tracey invited Jason first to an introductory workshop, and then the BBB Foundation course.

 

“I’d come home after the session and my head was buzzing and spinning – going 500 miles an hour! The topics and sessions were so empowering, when I got home I wrote pages and pages of notes.”

 

“The critical moment and turning point for me was my 1:1 session with George. I didn’t believe I had a niche, until George said ‘what food do you cook that you get the best feedback about?’ I said ‘Pies!!’ A door literally opened, Pies were my new niche! George gave me loads of ideas and it really took off!”

 

THE SOLUTION

THE RESULT

 “I am the best Pie Man in the area. I’ve grown as a person, I believe in myself and I now know I can deliver the product. The techniques we learn in Success Groups has massively opened my eyes, and is helping me think outside the box”.

 

“I’m still a reluctant risk taker, but the difference is I’m taking calculated risks now that has enabling me to grow my business and increase my customer base. I now take on full wedding bookings, something I’ve always refused to do before – I’ve got 4 Hog Roasts to do in the next couple of months alone”.

 

MORE RESULTS

“I’m financially better off for certain, keeping my head above water, and I no longer need to do any part-time work on top. I have the direction and focus I need now, and have structured a team of staff I can now call upon. This has given me the confidence to take on more and bigger bookings – I recently up-sold my service and turned a job from £650 – £2000!”

 

“I’m now in a position to look at my long term plan, and I have clear focus – I’m going to be known as the best pie maker in the South of England! I now plan to combine my skills and teach people to make pies.”

 

“George is incredible, mind-blowing, passionate and awe inspiring. Success Groups is one of the best things I have ever done, in terms of business development, it’s been phenomenal.”
