Are you looking for a free BBQ catering menu template?
Great! You have come to the right place. In my last post I talked about using Publisher to create your restaurant menu. However, this template was made using Adobe’s InDesign.
This menu as a woodgrain background on the cover and some light texture on the inner pages. It consists of 8 pages (including front and back covers) however you could easily delete or add more to it if you needed to make changes.
It is full of pictures which you can switch out with your own. It also has many different sub sections for your different menu categories.
These are great for different categories or even different packages that you offer for your catering services.
Edit the Template
To edit this bbq catering menu template you will need access to Adobe’s InDesign program. If you don’t have this program don’t worry, they offer a free 30 day trial.
Once you have downloaded the template you will be able to open in InDesign and make changes to it. Or if you don’t have the required knowledge to use InDesign, I’m sure your local printer would gladly make changes for you (you would have to pay for this of course!)
Once you have made all the changes you would like to this bbq catering menu template you will then need to print is as a PDF and send it to your local printer.
The template is set up to bleed and be folded down into a 5.5” x 8.5” booklet. This style has worked well for us over the years.
It allows you to have multiple sections on each page and each spread can be a separate category of the menu.
For example, the first 2 inner pages (spread) of this template consist of our family and party packs. The next two pages talk about our full service catering. The next two talk about our breakfast and pages 7 & 8 are the front and back covers of course.
