Making a Food Service Contract

  • What is a Food Service Contract?

    A Food Service Contract enables food service providers like restaurants and caterers to set forth the terms and conditions associated with their relationship with a client. Signed by both the food service provider and the client, this document helps to set reasonable expectations, covering details about the type of food served, cleanup, storage, and equipment required. With Rocket Lawyer, your Food Service Agreement isn't just a template. In case you ever require assistance from a lawyer due to nonpayment or another problem, your Rocket Lawyer membership offers the optional benefit of Document Defense® protection on every contract.

  • Should food service providers always write a contract for food service?

    Even if you are doing the work as a favor, it is always a good idea to create a Food Service Contract. Using this document most likely will be helpful for your business due to the benefits listed here:

    • Neither party is surprised by how long the engagement lasts
    • Everyone knows when invoicing will happen
    • Roles and responsibilities are understood by everyone

    Ultimately, if you or the client decide against signing this document, neither party will experience any of the benefits and protections that come along with having one in place.

  • What should my Food Service Agreement cover?

    Before getting started, you may want to organize the following critical details:

    • The client's full name and address
    • How much you will charge
    • What the duration of the engagement is
    • What tasks you will be responsible for

    As you probably expect, Food Service Contracts built with Rocket Lawyer also include the typical language about the non-employment relationship between the parties, liability, and finally, the method(s) of dispute resolution. While making your agreement, you also will have the ability to select the state under which it will be governed. Additional modifications are permitted, if needed.

  • How much might I traditionally have to pay to get a food service contract template created by an attorney?

    Luckily, you do not need to pay hundreds of dollars in fees to put your contract in writing. When using the document tools on Rocket Lawyer, any food service provider can create a Food Service Contract for free today. Your agreement is constructed section by section, so you can feel confident that it contains all of the appropriate details that you'll need. Simply tap or click on "Make document" to begin.

    If you have any particular concerns or questions about the process, you can ask an attorney. Also feel free to take a look at our larger repository of legal documents for contractors.

  • What needs to happen after I have made a Food Service Contract?

    In order to make a Food Service Contract legally binding, both parties need to sign it. You can use RocketSign® to do this remotely. As a best practice, be sure to give a copy of the signed agreement to your client. As a Rocket Lawyer member, you also will be able to print it out, download it in PDF format or as a Word document, or make copies of it as necessary.

  • Will Rocket Lawyer be able to check my Food Service Agreement?

    If you attempt it on your own, hiring an attorney to comment on your document might be time-consuming and relatively expensive. Sometimes an attorney may not even agree to review a document if they didn't write it. In the event that an attorney does decide to provide feedback about your document, they are still going to make you pay their standard fees to do it. An easier option would be to go through attorney services at Rocket Lawyer. When you sign up for a Premium membership, you can have your contracts examined by an attorney with experience in business. Whether you decide to create additional copies of your Food Service Agreement or other legal documents for food service providers, we are here to support you.
