Start ups

Starting a new business is daunting. The dream is fun, taking the leap is an adventure, but the reality can be overwhelming.

Do you need a helping hand to fulfil your dream of starting a catering or hospitality business? Or maybe you’ve taken the plunge and are unsure of what to do next? How do you truly get off the ground, create a strong identity and attract customers through your door?


Victus Consultancy works collaboratively with start up companies. Following an initial consultation, we get to know you, your vision, your dreams and your goals. Your hopes and your fears. We’re on hand throughout the process, as  much or as little as you need, offering advice, guidance, even a shoulder to cry on when needed! We’ll keep you on track, help you organise your priorities, and support you through the more challenging times with our expertise, knowledge, practical advice and humour

“Thank God we’re open and up and running, it’s been a tough process which has taken us considerably out of our comfort zone, but we are totally delighted with the end result… There is no doubt that your experience and expertise have been a major contributor in getting us open. Involvement, service and professional input has been super, giving us confidence and a safe pair of hands when we needed them most.”

  • Food & beverage
