Catering can be a very profitable source of additional business for restaurants when operators accurately estimate their costs and expenses before they bid on an event.
This download comes with two separate templates, the Catering Bid Worksheet and the Catering Proposal & Agreement templates.
Catering Bid Worksheet
The Catering Bid Worksheet is an organizational tool to determine the scope and cost of food, beverage and paper products, equipment and staffing requirements for a specific catering or banquet event. It will help you cost, price and estimate the profit potential of a particular proposed event or party.
The Catering Worksheet will give you a tool to help determine the food, beverage and paper products, equipment and staffing that are required for a specific event. You can then use this sheet to do a quick costing of the event to see what you need to charge to make an acceptable gross profit.
The Catering Bid Worksheet comes in both MS Word and MS Excel versions.
Catering Proposal & Agreement Templates
The Catering Proposal & Agreement includes a cover letter, proposal form and a quick catering/event agreement.
It's important to communicate your catering bids and proposals in a professional, clear and organized manner. The Catering Proposal & Agreement template includes a cover letter, proposal form and a quick catering/event agreement which we refer to as the "Catering Policies." We suggest you review the "Catering Policies" carefully as this spells out to your prospects and clients exactly how you intend to do business.
Once you customize these documents to your exact specifications you'll have a useful tool to respond quickly and consistently to groups and organizations considering your catering and other event services.
The Catering Proposal & Agreement comes in a Microsoft Word (.docx) file format.
