I'm catering a wedding for 100 with 5 happy hour appetizers followed by a buffet dinner of pork, potatoes, vegetable, salad and a pasta. I will also provide 4 servers and bartender. How do I charge?
Lots of great threads in here on catering pricing, here's a few:
Generally, event pricing uses this formula:
+ Fixed costs (insurance, licensing etc)
+ Variable costs (rentals, travel etc)
+ Labor help
+ Your fee/labor (shopping, planning, consultion etc)
+ Desired profit.
Add in tax etc, divide by # guests to get price per person.
