When I was planning my outdoor wedding food was a big concern. How do we feed all these people good, quality food, and not go over budget? My venue suggested a food truck. Spork Express was the PERFECT choice! I had heard rave reviews and was not let down. Jane was a pleasure to work with. We met a few times to go over the menu, placement of the truck, and everything else that goes into the planning. The food was over the top delicious for a very reasonable price. The day of my wedding I got to relax and enjoy everything without any stress. Jane and her crew took care of all of the details and provided the best wedding food I have ever tasted in my life. To this day people still comment on the quality of the food served out of the Spork Express on my big day. I could not be happier to have found and hired Jane and the Spork Express to cater my wedding reception. Hire the Spork Express for whatever the occasion. You will not be disappointed!

We used As You Like It for two days to feed over 800 employees. In addition to their low costs, the food was amazing and the people were even better. Steve and his crew were very flexibile, working extremely hard to make sure all of our needs were met. The food was absolutely delicious. Our employees have begged to use them again for future events. We cannot wait to work with them again in the near future.

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.
