"I was requesting quotes for my sons 5th grade banquet IN VERY SHORT NOTICE. Out of 50, I CHOSE BLESS MY SOUL FOOD CATERING & MORE!!!!! I needed to cater to 250+ guests. The vendors I had lined up for this event would not have been able to beat the cost, the timing, accommodating such a crowd on such short notice...NOR do it effortlessly with quality, FLAVOR and efficiency the ways I was catered to by THIS company. Immediately they were on my phone offering suggestions, and arranging to meet to HELP plan the menu as well offer any additional hand in any and every way for this event. Their time was very precious and they offered so much they didn't have to (that was so personal and comforting). On the day of the banquet, they were very much prepared, on time, organized, well dressed, extremely professional and SKILLED to the MAX! The dishes were AMAZING! Hot, fresh, flavorful, well made and well presented!!! Everything was cooked to perfection and so much more than I ever expected!! QUALITY! QUALITY! QUALITY! And can I say QUALITY!

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.
