A catering business entails an enormous amount of workload. Indeed, a caterer needs to attend to several things such as deciding on a menu that’s in accordance with the client’s preferences, preparing the food, buying the ingredients, and even decorating the event venue! Catering is a taxing affair, so much so that some caters would easily get overwhelmed by the multitudinous tasks that crowds their to-do list.
Due to this, it is easy for them to overlook the equally important aspects of the business such as handing out an appropriate and well-crafted catering invoice to their clients.

The catering business can take a toll not only on the staff, waiters, cooks, but most of all, on the manager or business owner. The mere thought of cost-estimation, food preparation, and venue decoration could overwhelm even the most seasoned of event planners. Not to mention, catering can be costly, and if not careful with tracking the costs and the timeliness of client’s payments, the owner would drown himself in a sea of immense financial deficits.
That is why, if you are the catering manager then you must make sure that you take every opportunity that allows you to save up not only on expenses but on time investment as well. By downloading our Simple Invoice Samples, your customers will receive a formal payment request from you without you having to go to so much trouble in creating an invoice.

How to Create a Catering Invoice
Heading is everything
Before you proceed on formatting your invoice, you must first remember to place on the topmost part the word invoice in bold letters. You may also capitalize this if you deem it necessary. The reason why this is an essential part of your invoice is simply because of the following:
- In order to make it easier for you to determine what type of document it is without having to go through its whole content. Easy recognition is particularly helpful in record-keeping, or in this case, invoice-keeping.
- Your customers who are hiring caterers to do the preparation for them are obviously busy bees, therefore you would want to make things easier for them when they will see right away the word invoice.
Fill in the customer details
Write the customer’s name, address, date of event, and contact information.
Itemized food and beverages
Enumerate the names of the food and beverages that you are serving at the event with their corresponding prices.
In block font, indicate the total sum that your customer needs to pay.
A contract is not binding without terms, the same goes with every business transaction. State clearly what methods of payment you prefer; also, when the payment is due.
