"This system was so good, I was in a class, and I recommended it to some other people, and they end up purchasing the system, and then they told me later how much it changed their lives."

Brent Reaves

"Once we moved over to CaterZen, it changed our life from that perspective, and we got to spend more time selling caterings and delivering caterings, than trying to logistically lay everything out."

"It saved us a ton of time on multiple processes when you have - we've got one team taking the order, we have another team routing our drivers to deliver it, and we have another team that's cooking the product and preparing it. CaterZen is able to read between all three, and really make it a cohesive system that they can utilize."

"I definitely became more efficient once I switched to CaterZen, and that in and of itself allowed me to increase my sales."

No longer will index cards, a spreadsheet or a simple database allow you to convert prospects into customers or ensure your customers stay raving, loyal fans.

You need one place where you can track all emails, phone calls, meetings, orders, quotes, proposals and activities.

Proposals & Quotes

A catering proposal should do far more than communicate the price of an event. It should sell the prospect on doing business with you.

We have turned proposals into selling tools. With the ability to create unlimited proposal templates for any/all of your event types, prospects appreciate you are talking directly to them and addressing their unique needs and concerns. 

Learn more about our Proposals & Quotes features  >>


Eliminate catering sales friction by booking meetings in a single step. 

With our automated meeting scheduling tool, you can simply send a link to your client or prospect to book a meeting at a time that works for them. They have access to your calendar and can see the dates/times you are available. Voila! No more back and forth.

Learn more about our Book-A-Meeting tool >>




Reminder Systems

The fortune is in the follow-up! The minute you create a proposal, you can set a reminder to follow up and turn it into a booking.

Increase catering sales by automatically being reminded to re-book an event before your client thinks to look elsewhere. Never before has the click of a mouse been so profitable.

"I am constantly looking for "tools" that mesh with our processes to meet the need, streamline our day-to-day, AND are built on a philosophy of proactively managing whatever it is I am trying to solve for.

CaterZen has met all the criteria and is truly one of those tools that comes along and changes the landscape. My only regret is that I didn't start on-boarding sooner, as we increased our catering sales in December by 227%!"


Mike Pearce, Slap's BBQ


"I had hired an additional staff member to do a very specific task of making calls to all clients who had orders the next day to confirm the details. CaterZen then added a feature that sent an auto-generated confirmation email the day before the order. I was then able to take the employee I had hired and use her for much more meaningful tasks and this feature basically replaced her job!"


Amber Polk, Soulman's Bar-B-Que


"I can't recommend CaterZen enough to restaurants that want to expand, start or even just organize their catering. We get compliments on our website, the layout of the invoices and the quick response time from online inquiries. Since being with CaterZen, our catering sales have grown over 100%."


Jenn Smiljanovski, Lazybones Smokehouse


"Before using CaterZen, we had no database to keep track of our clients, no marketing to promote our catering services, and virtually no way to track our customer’s invoices or order history.  The software allows us to focus on growing sales and executing the orders so we continue to get referrals from happy, return customers."


Jeremy Hood, David's BBQ & Catering


"When we started I was just using a basic excel spreadsheet template to create invoices.  It was good for the time but CaterZen has changed my life.  We have grown from my brother & I creating invoices to now having a catering coordinator and a salesperson.  When we first started we were doing a little over $200,000 in catering.  Last year we did over $500,000 in catering."


Brent Reaves, Smokey John's Bar-B-Que
