Catering for social events is another way for dining establishments to increase their sales. To properly execute this kind of business strategy, restaurateurs need to make sure that this new service is available and advertised appropriately.
The best way to do that is by creating a restaurant catering brochure. This type of printed advertising material allows customers to have a copy of your restaurant menu list. The brochure format also makes it more convenient for customers to take home and refer back to their brochure copy at a later time.
In this article, we provide 15 examples of restaurant catering brochure templates that restaurant owners can download and use for their own businesses. Feel free to look into each of them and get ready to use the printable template that will best showcase your restaurant image.
To aid restaurateurs and graphic designers alike who are looking for the best restaurant catering brochure, we have listed the key factors that should be considered when they are in the process of crafting their own restaurant brochure designs. Read on to know more.
The most important criteria when choosing a restaurant catering brochure template design should be its relevance to your restaurant’s branding identity. Before you can choose a good template design according to this criteria, you also need to be clear on what type of image you want your restaurant to have. There are a lot of factors that contribute to the making of the perfect restaurant image and this will undergo continuous changes throughout the life of your business. Factors like restaurant geographic location, intended market, specialty cuisine, the season, and expected return on investment all affect how the public perceives a certain restaurant.
So, before you choose a catering brochure template, make sure that you and your business partners (if present) have come up with a unique selling position for your restaurant. Once this aspect has been clearly defined, it will be a lot easier to choose a restaurant catering brochure template design that will truly complement your brand.
Another factor to consider when selecting a restaurant catering brochure should be your own personal tastes. As the owner of a restaurant, you are in control of all aspects of running the business. However, you should exercise this privilege with care. You still need to be smart about choosing the template design that will fit the restaurant image you are aiming to achieve.
In some cases, for example, you may find it difficult to make a choice on what specific brochure template to select. When this happens, choose the template design that you are most comfortable with. As a business owner, you have a connection with the restaurant’s branding identity that will instinctually help you make the right choices.
When looking for a catering brochure template, always choose one that allows you to make edits or customizations to the template. Pre-made templates where the original creator is the one who makes the edits is also acceptable. Restaurant brochure templates are created as an informational tool for your customers and they should be created with updated and accurate information. If you do not have the ability to make these edits on a brochure template, your brochure will appear phony and too generic.
Pre-made templates that can be customized are also more helpful for graphic designers and restaurateurs who wish to add their own distinct touches to the brochure template. Restaurateurs who are able to make customizations on their chosen pre-made brochure templates can then make sure their own restaurant’s branding elements like logo designs are included in the template.
If you have decided to use pre-made catering brochure templates, you should also evaluate your own editing skills. As we have mentioned earlier, most restaurant brochure templates are fully editable. End-users will need to input all the menu item names and descriptions into different layers and placeholders. Sometimes, edits on the graphic design elements used on the template are also needed. This means that you should at least know how to use photo-editing and compositing software programs like Adobe Photoshop and Adobe InDesign.
Restaurateurs do not have to be very well-versed in using these software tools. Learning the most basic skills for these software tools is often enough. If it is your first time encountering these software programs but you are interested in learning them for our catering brochure project, there are a lot of free PSD tutorials for beginners that you can use online.
Lastly, an important factor to consider when creating restaurant catering brochures is your budget. This may not be an issue for big restaurant chains since advertising is usually handled by a dedicated team with large budgets. In contrast, small restaurants and new restaurateurs may operate with limited means. Sometimes, these businesses may not have the funds for a dedicated marketing plan.
So, if you are in the latter group, using restaurant catering brochure templates may be the best step to take since pre-made templates do not cost that much. The need to pay for exorbitant fees for a graphic artist is also eliminated. This approach is then a better alternative for most restaurateurs who do not have big advertising and marketing budgets.
