    Having an event like awedding reception or a party? Looking for AMAZING food & service? Look no further! Let Henn House BBQ cater your event. They catered our wedding reception with 250 guests with ease. Let Phil & Johanna, and Scott too, take care of the food so you can relax and enjoy your party. All of our guests raved about their food. And to this day, I'm still hearing about how amazing all the food was at our party! Their brisket was the crowd favorite! I want to have another party just so we can have Henn House BBQ cater it!

    Tom and Ardith catered our 40th wedding anniversary party. After discussing menu options, we chose pulled pork, baked beans, coleslaw, relish trays, and chips. The pork was BBQed to perfection, with many positive comments from our guests. Tom and Ardith were very accommodating on our choice of date for the party, which meant a lot to us. We had about 125 guests and had the perfect amount of food left over. The whole event went off without a hitch. The only thing we can think of that would've made our guests happier, would have been to leave the food out a little longer before they cleaned up. Some guests wanted more food as the night went on or arrived late, so we had to get some things back out for those guests. Our family had a wonderful evening and are very happy with what Tom and Ardith did for us. We would definitely use them again!

    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.
