Vphil, Welcome! I wish the conversation with the client would start off with them saying " I know it's not going to be cheap and it wouldn't cost as much if we did it ourselves,but, would you or could you provide some vegan meals and snacks for my family". They need to know that just because the ingredients aren't expensive doesn't mean you and your time aren't worth something. Your acting like a personal chef more than a caterer. In todays world I'm not sure there isn't anything a person can't buy at Whole foods that isn't already cut up ready to eat. I really feel these people are asking for things that when they see the cost they will think it's not worth the price. I'm not saying your not worth it, it's just so simple they most likely won't see the value. I can already hear them saying " GGEEEZZZZZ all this is is a veggie try and he/she charged us $25. I know it's hard to turn down anything when your a small caterer,but, somethings should be turned down. I don't think either side will see this as being a good idea in the end. I would concentrate on building your business......take care.........Chef Bill
