Free Downloadable Restaurant Manager’s Log BookMaintaining a running log book is a great way for managers to track trends and unordinary occurrences within the establishment. Managers often use log books to track employee engagement (or lack thereof), track how weather patterns are affecting sales, make note of guest feedback, and compile general sales and labor data. You could create your own manager log book from scratch, but it’s often easier to start with a premade base. Budget Branders has put together an example manager’s log book template. The template is designed to work for almost any service industry establishment as-is, but it could also be customized to meet the exact needs of your restaurant, bar, or coffee shop.You can click the link below to download or copy the template.

Free Downloadable Restaurant Menu TemplatesGood menu design is important, because it’s the part of your business brand that your customers will interact with the most. At a minimum, your menu should be well-organized and easy to read. However, in an ideal world, your menu will also pop enough to impress those who read it. Shops in locations with high foot traffic may be able to lure customers in if the menu out front is attractive enough. It can be expensive to work with a professional designer on a menu. You could end up paying $100 or more for your menu design. Fortunately, you don’t have to shell out a lot of money to have a good looking menu. We’ve created several free menu templates you can use to start creating your menu without having to start from scratch. The files are Illustrator files, so you’ll need access to Adobe Illustrator to edit the designs.
