I hired Cathy to cook for my mother's 60th birthday dinner party. Beforehand we spoke several times about the menu and plan for the evening. Everything was better than expected! We had a plated dinner service for 13 women; her food was delicious and her service was excellent. She went above and beyond any expectations I had for the evening. She made an additional appetizer that was not expected which worked out perfectly because I had one individual who was not able to eat the seafood appetizer I chose. Cathy also had a server with her to help execute the night, both of whom were professional and efficient; filling the ice bucket, refilling waters, clearing plates, washing dishes etc., all things that I expected to have to do myself. Cathy was even thoughtful enough to purchase my mother a birthday gift! Our night was lovely thanks to her and all of her hard work and expertise. I would absolutely recommend and use her again for future events!

We asked for a backyard picnic for our neighborhood. Matt provide BBQ pork & chicken, plus coleslaw, potato salad, ranch style beans, homemade rolls, butter and a decadent chocolate dessert, that included fresh berries and whipped cream. The food was delivered on time, hot and all we needed to serve it was provided. All the food was nicely presented and tasted very good, the dessert was fabulous. The delivery and & pick up of all the items went smoothly. The contact with Matt making the arrangements was easy. We had no worries or concerns that were not taken away once Matt told us what is food was like and how it would be prepared. We especially like his business model and were pleased to be part of his mission. We would consider using Matt again. We are confident that we got what we paid for and more.

My family had a pound cake shipped by Phoenix2egypt catering a few days before thanksgiving. We reside in Houston, Texas. Folks the cake was not only delivered in perfect condition but it was by far the best we had. Made straight from scratch. Had mine with some Bluebell vanilla ice cream and I will let the rest speak for itself. You got to have some Phoenix2egypt. Keep up the good work Phoenix2egypt. Your food speaks for itself. You are indeed a touch of class.

LaKisha was very easy to work with. She was prompt and timely in her correspondence. She delivered the treats on time. Most importantly, her ice cream sandwiches were delicious. My guests still ask about them!

I hired Chef Kelly for a Private Dinner for with some of employees (and my boss) This was my first time hosting something like this at my house and Chef Kelly made it an absolutely breeze, not to mention the food was nothing less than perfect. Great Chef to work with and you have to try his seared scallops over creamed corn, bread pudding, mushroom risotto, crab and lobster cakes, macaroni and cheese and Anna Potatoes. Those were just a few of my favorites . Can't wait to the next employee outing I host.

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.
