If a customer accepts your contract – awesome, you have already arranged all the cake and event details correctly. If you haven`t heard it come back yet, you can just watch and follow through your pending contracts! Stop being a mess when it comes to paperwork and order management. Well-filled cake contracts make your life easier. Editable copies of a work cake contract as well as 5 disclaimer forms, templates, tricks and more are available in this package: you should whip up a first cake contract and note some information, including: The final payment may be due a few weeks before the event or paid at the time of collection or delivery. Wow, it`s amazing that you had to uproot your business and make it move like that! But cool to hear that the military community has been both support and a good network tool for you. Where else were you parked and could you tell us what the differences were between these places in terms of pie rules? We found that most professional custom cake orders follow an 8-step process. You`ll notice that once you get a slope of cake contracts, you`ll use them throughout the process! You must have your cake contract signed by your client one last time. What for? This last signature ensures that your cake lives up to your expectations and that you will no longer be responsible for the damage caused to it. Is the cake delivered to the place or picked up by the customer? If you want delivery, then you need to discuss the delivery fee (because AKA delivery your time is not free)! After following the event with your client, it`s a great way to get feedback on your cake and ask for recommendations. It`s also a simple way to show your customers that you`re interested and would like to do business with them again! We are military and my little cake shop was both awesome and mobile. The military community is amazing, and I`ve never had a problem with payment, but I haven`t had a show or non-payment in the different communities we`ve been in, and the contract is something I would have wanted to use, so it would have saved me a lot of headaches and trouble. The good thing about social media is that you`re going to make a name for yourself online and follow you.
