Christine did a fantastic job catering our party. She made suggestions that enhanced our menu and decorated the tables to perfection. Christine thought of - and brought everything that was needed. It's truly a turn-key service. I made a couple of additional request just days before the party and it didn't faze her. We have used caterers in the past - but by far Christine is hands down the best. And, she makes it affordable! At the end of the party everything was cleaned, packaged and put away. We'll be using Pangea again & again. J. Taylor

One of the best professionals I have ever worked with. Not only is the food great every time, but the service is outstanding, deliveries timely, every detail accounted for and best of all...Steve works with you every step of the way to make sure you are at ease and everything goes as it should. We've used By Word of Mouth for corporate luncheons, employee parties, our annual Christmas party, and most recently an executive dinner featuring a 7course meal for international clients. I don't know where he gets his staff, but they are all exceptional and reflect Steve's very calm and in control demeanor, with a pleasantness that is well received by all our guests. Steve even pulled off a last minute job for 100 people for us with less than 2 days to prepare. Our "other" caterer over booked themselves leaving us high and dry. Looking back, I don't know why we didn't go with Steve in the first place. All of us here at the office would recommend Steve and his staff over and over.

From the menu planning to the prompt delivery, everything was perfect for our baby shower. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. My guests raved and many asked for contact information for the caterer. I couldn't have been more pleased.

I hired Jaque to prepare a meal in my home as a surprise for my wife on our 25th anniversary. Jaque was easy to work with in creating a menu and did everything from prep to service to cleanup. She delivered more than she promised and created a very memorable experience.

    We had an excellent experience with Danica & 612 catering. Delicious, hot, healthy meal for 100 people served as a buffet. Everyone loved the food. Great value too as Danica and her team managed set-up, monitored the buffet, and clean-up. We look forward to catering other lunches with 612 Catering.

    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.
