I used Carefree Catering for a corporate Christmas Party for about 60 people. The food was amazing!! Jon was very attentive in getting everything set up and making suggestions. He was super fast to respond when I had questions. Would definitely use them again!

We were looking for someone to drop off appetizers for our son's wedding. He and his bride had chosen a bbq company for the reception dinner, and wanted more upscale appetizers for the cocktail hour before the reception. When I recieved my requested quotes, several caterers had appealing quotes, but Chef Mike with Artistic catering had an unbeleiveable quote! I spoke with Mike on the phone several times to ensure our understanding of what was expected...dropping off tons of food...yet when it came to the day of, he brought the food himself, set it up, and replenished the buffet for the entire coctail hour. He provided so much food that many of the guests believed that there was no dinner forthcoming and gorged themselves on the amazing food! The particular favorite that I have heard the most about was the deviled eggs, and I will agree that they were amazing! The shrimp, meatballs and chili lime chicken disappeared with unbelievable speed. All of our guests raved about the food, and I cannot wait for my next opportunity to have Chef Mike cater our party!

I retained Stacey to bake a cake and cookies for my daughter's bridal shower. Stacey created the most unique cake comprised of cupcakes to create the shape of a wedding dress. Stacey also baked wedding cake shaped cookies which were decorated exquisitely and wrapped in cellophane then tied in a bow. I highly recommend Stacey for any catering needs. With Stacey's background she is highly qualified to create anything sweet or savory. Stacey is highly professional, courteous and prompt. Throughout the process Stacey was always in touch with photo samples, new ideas and overall status. I will definitely call Stacey next time I have a party catered into my home.

Anna is wonderful! Some last minute changes for a surprise Graduation Party made her services a must! She responded quickly to my requests, was very creative in our request for "elevated College Kid foods" and arrived prepared and on time. She handled all the catering so I could actually enjoy the party and guests, and her creations received RAVE reviews! I highly recommend Anna and will be using her again!

Amy and was an incredible caterer. The food was delicious and the presentation was outstanding. She provided delicious selections for both the meat eaters and the vegetarians. We decided to go with cold foods for many reasons and this was a perfect choice for our party. Thank you for everything Amy, I will utilize your services for all of our catering needs.

I had discovered Common Ground’s catering services after dining at Wally’s Gastropub in Scottsdale and decided to try them out for my daughter’s rehearsal dinner that we hosted at another venue. It was fantastic!! They have two other restaurant concepts with top notch menus and we were delighted by ALL the options available to us! They were prompt and very well organized. The whole evening turned out perfectly, and the staff was both very friendly, accommodating, and professional. I will definitely keep them at the top of my list for future events!

We had our annual St. Patrick's Day Luncheon, I have to say I was a bit nervous. But instead it turned out to be the greatest experience, everything was here on time, everyone raved about the food that was served especially the corned-beef, the Shepard's pie and Lasagna was also a great hit. THANK YOU Gracie Parker Fine American Cuisine for a great experience, I would recommend you to everyone who asks about catering services.

Laken Deal runs a great ship. She came down with strep throat and had Jenna fill in for our Premier Launch Event at a one-of-a-kind estate in Sedona. Not only did Jenna come prepared, she wowed the guests. Absolut Bartending is top notch and absolutely delivers! On behalf of ILoveSedonaRealEstate.Com- we LOVE Absolut Bartending...

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

How much should catering cost per person?

Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

  • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
  • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
  • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
  • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
  • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
