A food invoice allows restaurants, food delivery services, and businesses that process food to bill clients/customers after orders have been taken and delivered. The food should be listed in a line-by-line manner that lists each specific type of food ordered and the quantity. The total amount, including any taxes, should be calculated and applied when sending for payment.
What is a Food Invoice?
A food invoice is a billing document that can be sent to customers after food has been ordered. As food delivery becomes more popular by ordering through mobile apps and online, a food invoice allows a business to streamline food orders. Once complete, a food invoice can be exported on paper or electronically via Word, Excel, and PDF formats.
Helpful Tip: Use a Catering Service Invoice when needing a method to request payment for making and preparing foods for large events (weddings, birthday parties, corporate functions).
