A Catering Contract is a legal agreement between a caterer and a client that establishes the specifics of a catering service for a certain event. Whether you plan a wedding reception, fundraising event, or a holiday dinner, this document is useful for any event where food and beverages are to be provided for a number of people.

Negotiating a Catering Agreement is more than a discussion of food and beverages, it is a legally binding document that outlines service expectations between caterers and clients. It will give both parties a clear understanding of timelines, obligations, and payment expectations. Prior to signing the deal, the client must provide the event details: its expected duration, number of guests expected, vendors involved, and a detailed cost breakdown of food and other services the caterer will provide.
A standard Catering Contract usually involves a down payment to cover food costs and initiate the transaction. The caterer may also wish to protect intellectual property present in the recipes, menus, ingredients, and methods by suggesting a copyright provision to the agreement.
