Ok, So my family opened up a little restaurant using traditional recipes that have been passed down from previous generations. Our customer volume has been increasing considerably in the few years. We had just been asked about catering for an event so I wanted know how we would price it.
They wanted us to just provide noodle soups in individual takeaway bowls. They wanted the soup in a pot so they could heat it up themselves. We would assemble the meals and they would serve it themselves. We were told that they needed 50 servings. A serving of the particular soup they wanted was $12.50. So in total it would be $625. I assume that you'd give them some sort of a discount in this situation, but I'm curious about how much.
I'd very much appreciate some insight on how to appropriately price catering jobs.
