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
The Catering Bid Worksheet comes in both MS Word and
MS Excel versions.
Catering Proposal & Agreement
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 (.doc) file format.
