Chef Darin was great beginning to end. I needed a caterer on a holiday weekend for a birthday luncheon, many caterers were not available. Chef Lee provided great options in planning and was very accommodating the day of the event. The food was delicious and he provided a great level of professionalism while still being down to earth and personable. I will highly recommend him in the future and also would hire again!

I used to Dye for catering for my wedding on April 18th. The food was amazing, my guest said it is the best BBQ they have ever had. I personally loved the gouda mac and cheese. As the bride I was very busy the day of my wedding. I never even saw Chris Dye that day. Chris and his staff were asked by others in my party to do many things that were not part of our contract and I was unaware, such as set tables. Chris and his team went above and beyond on our wedding. Simply Amazing!!

Melia was extremely helpful in preparing party favors for my nephew's retirement party. The colors for the celebration were blue and gold. The guest were so amazed at the beautifully decorated apples and pretzel sticks that were covered in white chocolate adorned with an assortment of edible gold and blue sprinkles, nuts, Carmel, and trimmings.

It was very easy working with Danny. He was accommodating in coming up with a plan that was just right for our group. The price was reasonable and the food was excellent.

    I needed catering service on set for my thesis film in school. I was fortunate to know April's son who told me about his amazing Mother. I got amazing service from April. The food was well made, and in abundance. I had the choice to pick from a series of meals, snacks and drinks. The food was brought on set early, and she stayed throughout the shoot to help serve us all (The same great service for 3 days). I would recommend April to anyone in need of great catering service. :)

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
