Catering licences are for catering businesses that provide a full range of food and beverage services to their clients. Licensed caterers can sell liquor and maintain a liquor inventory. Licensed caterers must ensure that the primary focus of their business is preparing and serving food. They must have the personnel and equipment necessary to prepare and serve food at events hosted by others. This includes the requirement to have a full commercial kitchen at their establishment.
