Before you start looking into licensing and such, it seems you should survey your market as well as the competition. Will people in your area be willing to pay for your services? If so, how much? You can get a good sense of what people are willing to pay by calling other local catering companies.
Also, this may sound a bit harsher than I intend but, when I think of catering, I don't think of burgers and hot dogs -- that seems like "street" food and not "catering." Additionally, that is food that I can cook myself - why would I hire you? This is not to say that your idea will not work and I certainly do not mean to discourage you. I just think that you should do PLENTY of market research before looking into spending money on getting licensing and equipment.
