Advice for pricing late snack, light breakfast, full lunch for 20 people? Help!! ha....

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have an opportunity to cater a job for approx 20 people - Evening snack, pastry/parfait breakfast type thing, and a soup/salad lunch, hoping for some insight into how to charge for this kind of thing. Any help would be awesome!!! Thanks

Work out what the food will cost you, then add in all the other expenses you may have, 

including your own labor/how-much-you-want-for-your-time, total it and divide by 20 

to get price per person. That is the Caterer's Canon.

 

 

Oh yeah and welcome to CT. :D

You left out a lot of details----linen and china? Serving help? Lobster or soy bean curd?

 

Your question is like asking what a hotel room will cost ----I've paid as little as $35.00 and as much as $350.00---a few details please.
