Edventure Frome’s apprentices have set up a portable, wood-fired pizza oven business to cater at community events, private functions and garden parties in Frome.
The business provides training and employment opportunities for young adults in Frome, and all profits go back into supporting young people to start up their own projects, self-employment and businesses in Frome.
Katie Lyttle and Redd How, the two apprentices at Edventure who set up the enterprise, said: “We took the opportunity to have a go at setting up a catering business. We began from scratch, sourcing ingredients, learning how to make dough and working out how to use the oven. We completed our food hygiene exam and learnt about the health and safety of outdoor catering. Finance was also a key element of this task, understanding profit margins, budgeting, and learning about spreadsheets. One of the other apprentices worked on branding for the business. Where possible we source our ingredients for the pizzas locally and from the Frome market. Local market stall holders were so supportive, sharing contacts and offering deals. Frome’s community really is something special.”
The Wood-fired Pizza Oven has already catered at several private events, and community events organised by Frome Town Council and Aster communities. To book the Pizza oven for your event or garden party please email [email protected] for prices.
