Formulating an Effective Contract
Catering contracts are deemed to be legally relevant—all contracts, for that matter. It is defined by legal dictionaries as “an agreement between the client and the caterer to provide catering services.” The contract will spell out relevant terms and conditions for both parties to abide. Here are most, if not all, of the terms the two parties essentially agree on:
- Client’s details
- Venue/Type of Function
- Food Supply
- Types of dishes
- Date / Time of the event
- Expections that are not contrary to law
- Rights and Obligations of Parties
As contracting parties, you are free to add other provisions, such as terms for cancellation, as long as they are not contrary to your laws, morals, public policy, and customs.
A well-written catering contract are those that are specific. One should avoid drafting broad provisions because it will be subject to multiple interpretations. Always ensure that your contract’s provisions are
- clear and specific,
- agreed by the parties,
- not contrary to law, and
- within reasonable standards.
The list is not exclusive, and you can always develop more standards that would best serve your interests. The tips above are not just applicable to catering contracts but also to other contracts such as investment contracts. What are you waiting for? Check out and download our contract templates.
