Matt Barnes did an outstanding job of catering our party! We had 86 guests for a birthday celebration. When I first contacted him about catering the party he patiently walked me through the process and helped me plan the menu which included 7-8 different hors d'oeuvres, both hot and cold. He prepared them at our party site and they were all absolutely delicious!! The presentation was fantastic! He transformed a simple table into a welcoming buffet of food. We received so many compliments on the food and would have him cater another party without hesitation. There was plenty of food for each guest and Matt kept the tables well stocked and inviting through the whole evening! His professionalism and his friendliness made him the perfect caterer for us!

It was the first time we used Kitchen Academic, LLC to cater an office luncheon. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious. Our staff was impressed and pleased with the presentation and the taste. Markus was a joy to work with; very thorough in his approach to catering the event, arrived on time and prepared and stayed until the lunch was concluded. I couldn't have asked for better service. We will definitely use Kitchen Academic for future office functions. Oh and did I mention the food was delicious!

What a refreshing change for ordinary catering! I was incredibly impressed with the quick response to my quote request and also pleased with the value I received. The food was very good and the selection fit our needs perfectly. I was absolutely blown away at the presentation of the buffet, you won’t get this feature from many caterers. It was a nice added touch. The customer service was outstanding and our event was very successful. Thank you again!

They catered my wedding of 110 guests in my outdoor rustic barn wedding. They showed up early and were ready. I didn't have to check on them or ask them anything. They were self sufficient. Guests loved the food! They will make anything you want!

Visual drama designs catered my housewarming party. Khawana and Katrina met with me a couple of times before the event and they really got to get to know me. I wasn't sure what to expect but they went beyond my expectations. The decor was tailored to my personality and taste. The food was delicious. I highly recommend this dynamic duo. I will hire them again in the future. They are extremely pleasant to work with and very friendly!

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.
