Tanya was fantastic all around. We were celebrating a fiftieth birthday in a house undergoing construction and only half completed! TMT stepped up to the challenge Her planning and communication were excellent. She and her team arrived exactly when expected and got right to work amid our chaos. The food was fabulous! Next time we need to get double the postickers! All my guests raved about it and on top of that the few that ventured into the kitchen to meet her remarked about how lovely she was. I can't say enough great things about TMT.

I work for a small company with only 10 people in our Portland office and needed to cater a lunch celebrating an employee's 25 year work anniversary. With only 11 days to plan, I found Thumbtack and decided to give it a try. A few short hours later Hope reached out ready to start planning. Within the 10 employees we have one vegetarian, one gluten free and one grain free individual, and two lactose free individuals. She had no problem, and no worries, creating a menu that was suitable for all. She showed up on time and provided a delicious meal. As we sat around the room I heard only one complaint - "I'm going to overeat!" Everyone was thrilled with their meal and pleasantly full. I highly recommend Hope and the As You Wish Catering staff for your next event. We will definitely reach out to her in the future for our next catering need.

Theresa was very easy to work with for my 40th Birthday celebration. We ordered a bunch of different items that were all excellent! She even tailor made me a few dairy free options, including a mini-cake for me to enjoy. The Mexican Sombrero cake was a hit, and everyone said it was delicious!! I would hire Theresa again for any of my catering events. A delight to work with.

We cannot thank M.A.N.E catering enough for their hard work and truly giving us a wonderful culinary experience. We have used the owner Nicholas, his staff, and culinary creativity for years only to watch them out do themselves time and time again. The menu choices lack nothing so we never need to compromise. Using MANE catering is a no-brainer for us at this point. Thank you again to everyone. We will highly recommend you!

Robert put on a Graduation Brunch at my home for about 50 people. He helped me with the menu to make food that was easily eaten, allowing people to be free to move around the patio and garden areas. Robert and his staff did an outstanding job and everyone raved about the great food and wonderful service. Thanks Robert and staff! I will definitely look to you for your great catering service for any future event...and there are plenty more to come...I may even make one up! Suzanne Rice- Winthrop ME

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.
