Networking: Look for companies that are complementary to your own to potentially expand your contract. For example, if you offer catering services, you can partner with a venue. One way to start is to look for associations in the city where you can network and meet other food service businesses or restaurants.

The Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington (RAMW) offers networking opportunities, events and social media, endorsed service providers, and the annual RAMMYS awards.

Licensing deals: Consider licensing your product to others and sharing the revenue.

Franchise model: As your business becomes more successful, consider a franchise model to grow and expand your reach.
