I just picked up a gig feeding a frat house with a low budget. I am looking to feed 15 boys for under $25. And ideas?
Low cost buffet items
P.S. I'm not in your line of business, but I do know the cost of food here in Oklahoma, as I purchase and cook for a non-profit kitchen. With just the cost of food, no paper or drinks, food only cost us $2.31 average meal and that is shopping bargains at local stores and Sam's. That is the protein, veggie, salad and dessert. Those are not really kids, they will be 18 and up probably and a hot dog and coke probably wouldn't work. I think when you made the contract you should have asked what they wanted for the $25 worth of food and seen if you could have made a profit on what they wanted. You know they couldn't go out and get a Big Mac for 1.65. You probably got the contract because the others caterers wanted $5.00 each only for food.
