Blank Invoice

On this page we will review how to create a "blank invoice" for purchases made by Darden. Blank Invoices should be submitted only in cases when you do not receive a Purchase Order from Darden.

  1. Select the “Invoices” tab from the top of the page and click on the “Create Blank Invoice” button 
  2. Enter the Invoice Number and Invoice Date
  3. Upload attachments (scanned or PDF copy of the invoice or other documentation that could be used for backup)
  4. The “Bill From” section will automatically populate based on the addresses you established in your Coupa profile
  5. The “Bill To” address must be set to the Darden location (only one option available)
  6. Very Important: In the Restaurant or Corporate Department field you will need to enter the correct Darden Restaurant or Corporate Department that you are doing business with.
    1. This field will direct your invoice to the appropriate contact in that corporate department or restaurant location
    2. It is crucial that you enter this field correctly to be reimbursed in a timely manner
    3. We highly encourage you to ask your Darden business partner who should be listed on the invoice to ensure proper routing. Failure to send the invoice to the right location could cause delays 
      1. For Restaurants, type the address, zip code or restaurant number to identify the restaurant you are looking for. The manager you work with will be able to provide their restaurant number
      2. For Corporate Departments, start typing the department name you are doing business with and select the appropriate department. Notice that all corporate departments start with “Corporate”
  7. Enter item description and amount 
  8. Enter Supplier Part Number — e.g.: SKU #1589_00
  9. Enter Equipment Type, Manufacturer and Serial # for Darden documentation (optional)
  10. Add Shipping and Tax
  11. Add Comments (optional) and Submit
