Fresh as can be was fantastic. They went above and beyond with my wedding. First off I had a hard time with other caterers not even answering me back or trying to add things to my menu and bring up the price, but I didn't have those problems with Kim. She always answers my emails very quickly, and she was great with doing what I wanted and she had great prices. Even on the day of the wedding when my mother and I were planning on having a hot chocolate and coffee bar and ended up not having time to make it, we asked fresh as can be and they made it for us on the spot. The only thing that I would change is that they took the top tear of the cake off before we got to do our cake cutting pictures, but that is something that can easily be avoided by letting them know before hand. The food was amazing, and everyone at the wedding really enjoyed it, there was almost nothing left and I ordered extra just in case.

Michelle is a great caterer to work with! I hosted a dinner for 25 in our home with limited seating at a dining room table, and Michelle was so accommodating to prepare a great meal that folks could eat off their laps . Her appetizers were beautiful and tasty, the main course was perfect, and deserts were scrumptious. My guests raved about the meal. Along with great food, her prices are very reasonable for everything she offers.

Precision Palate catered my wedding in October and it was a wonderful experience! From the first time I talked to Jeff on the phone-until our wedding day, Jeff was so professional and helpful. Not only was the food wonderful, but the service provided was outstanding! Jeff and his staff were very accommodating and always had a smile on their face. I highly recommend Precision Palate for any catering needs!

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.
