Chopping Board: Yes please. We do a 60% initial deposit to book and pay the rest a week to delivery or on delivery.
Interviewer: Have you had any challenges while working with clients? What were they?
Chopping Board: Yes, with payment. Some people want to pay too way less. They expect us to take the delivery cost
They pick their cakes from us and it’s intact . When they ruin it through the cause of transportation by themselves they tend to blame us. We educate them on handling it when they pick up too.
Interviewer: Do you think online wedding services especially Weddings On Budget and catering services has really helped?
Chopping Board: It has helped a lot since clients do not have to walk to our shop to place an order or book our services. I’d give it an 80% vote.

Chopping Board: Yes I have. Most of my clients came from social media . Great tool for marketing
