Success stories


Compleat Caterers

Compleat Caterers have been Colchester Market regulars since 2015.

Business owner Karen and her family started trading on Colchester Market offering delicious Paella, a skill honed from their time spent in Spain.

Since that time, they have gone from strength to strength. Within two years the business had transitioned to become a successful event catering company.

A spokesperson for Compleat Caterers said, “Regular market trading was a great platform for attracting bookings for weddings and events.

“By 2017, Compleat Caterers were a well-established and respected events catering company, maintaining a regular presence on the market.

“The market was happy to support Karen with time off for the lucrative summer event programme and provide the flexibility she needed.”
