We had a Company Picnic with a short turn around time on 8/11/16 and we called Made With Love Catering and spoke to Debbie Dittman. Debbie was so kind and worked with us because we did not know how many attendees intitally. She was very accommodating and made everything feel less stressful. Our picnic turned out to be about 160 people. Remember this was set up in about 9 business days. Debbie was amazing in the business end. Now for the food feed back. The food was AMAZING! Lots of food, she worked within our budget and we received lots of thumbs up from attendees. I would recommend Made With Love for business or personal catering. Cheers! Frances

Arturo is a joy to work with and makes delicious healthy foods. I've used his catering for a number of business lunches and they are always enjoyed. I especially love that he makes tamales with olive oil, and the veggie ones are superb.

Global Gourmet provided catering for our company Holiday luncheon. Boris and his staff came early to setup and made sure that presentation was great. The food was delicious and replenished timely. They also cleaned up after. Pricing for the whole event was really reasonable, and Boris really works with you to provide a catering menu to fit your budget. We'll be keeping them in mind for the next event.

I had Cowabunga BBQ cater my summer wedding and it was AWESOME! It was fairly priced, beautifully set up and the food was AMAZING! The beans were out of this world! In fact, months after my wedding, my guests were still commenting on how good the food was. I will definitely have them cater for any other events that I have and highly recommend them for your events!

We hired Famous Creations to cater our wedding and they did an amazing job. The food was not as good as I remembered the tasting, but it was cooked on a larger scale and was buffet style, so that is understandable. However, the best part about their services was the hired help. We hired a head server, Jill and two food servers. Jill was basically our wedding planner and did an amazing job making the wedding run smoothly.Also, our wedding cake, made by Famous Creations was to die for! Super moist, beautifully presented and was gone almost instantly. Overall, I highly recommend Famous Creations for their catering services, they made my wedding day run without any problems.

With all of the catering services available online, I chose to go with KINCY CATERING and I'm glad that I did. While speaking with Mr. Emani, he assured me that he could definitely provide a catered luncheon for 40 of my co-workers and myself. The selection of food items was huge, however I wanted to pick items that would fit within my budget and he had no problem assisting me in doing so. What I was looking for was some down-home, southern comfort food. He and I agreed on green beans w/ onions and red skin potatoes, macaroni / cheese and chicken. On the schedule day of the luncheon Mr. Emani was very punctual, as he arrived 30 minutes early. He was very professional, humble and a pleasure to do business with. As I expected the food was absolutely fabulous. Many of my co-workers complemented and agreed that it was well worth it. The presentation of the food trays was very neat and the food looking very appealing. I was totally delighted by the fact that Mr. Emani kept constant communication with me as there are some allergies with my co-workers and some do not eat meat so he was very considerate in his ingredients that were being used in efforts to accommodate every dietary need. So from my co-workers and myself we want to give a GREAT BIG THANK YOU for allowing us to experience KINCY CATERING and we will definitely be using your catering services in the future!!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you find a good caterer?

Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

How much does wedding catering cost per person?

Wedding catering costs will always vary based on the number of guests you’re inviting, the menu you want to serve, and the way the food will be served to your guests. As you interview wedding catering companies, you’ll be presented with a cost per person for various menus. On the low end, wedding catering may cost approximately $15-$18 per person. This would include prepared food only, with no setup or service of any kind. The starting price for a simple buffet meal with minimal service typically averages $22 per person. Opting for the same menu with all organic ingredients could raise your costs to about $33 per person. A moderately upscale menu (finer ingredients, more elaborate presentation) could range from $24 to $34 per person. High-end wedding catering cost truly has no limit. Lobster, filet mignon, specialty seafood, organic ingredients — menu choices like these can boost your cost per person up to $150 and more.

Do you tip a wedding caterer?

Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

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.

What should you look for in a caterer?

A delicious meal is a critical element of a successful wedding, with happy guests fondly remembering your fabulous wedding food. The right caterer for you will be:

  • Available: Even the best caterer is no good if they aren’t available on your wedding date. Ask early before you get your heart set on someone.
  • Affordable for you: Find a caterer that you can afford. Having a spending plan ahead of time will mean you won’t overspend on food.
  • A good personality fit: Wedding planning is stressful, so work with someone that you can get along with and communicate with easily.
  • Experienced and recommended: Ensure the company has a proven track record with events of your size and the references to back it up.
  • Transparent about money: Steer clear of shady pricing. Find a caterer who is very clear about costs and is happy to talk you through budgets and pricing options.
  • Transparent about food: Find someone who is clear about where they source their food from and where it is prepared.
