What an AWESOME experience.... I thought I was just hiring a caterer; but Zileus is more than that. Sarah, the owner, is amazing. She helped with the event from finding the venue, to ordering flowers, to hiring the photographer. She even got the dresses dry cleaned!! The day of she and her staff prepared such yummy and beautiful that my guests are still raving about it. She also managed the whole day so my only worry was not falling on my face while walking down the isle. I 100% recommend Sarah and her company for any event!!! Fistbump-Xana.

This was the smartest thing I have ever done with a dinner party, and I will do it again. We had an engagement party for our daughter serving 42. Benisha's service was excellent, on all levels- communication, food selections, presentation, and the food itself impressed all my guests!

    TS Catering is Amazing! I had to find some one to cater my Mom's birthday party, and she loves Mexican food and I didn't wanna do a buffet line thing, so I called around and found out about TS Catering, went by their location at Pick-a-Part, and at first bite I knew they were the ones I needed for the party! My mom fell in love with their red salsa and the cooks, it was an amazing experience and I will for sure be hiring them for any other events I plan on having!

    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.
