They want these individuals to take over their responsibilities including choosing what food to serve, where to hold the event, music and entertainment, hiring speakers or emcees, decorating the venue, creating invitations and promotional materials, preparing the equipment to be used, and forming a working committee as well. What's more satisfying than taking care of your customers' needs and assuring them of a successful and well-organized event?

      Applying the concept of a mobile business seems interesting. It can be adapted to any shop. The rest looks expensive and requires more resources, planning may take time. Great article.
