Carol catered a 50th anniversary party we planned for my parents. She was very easy to work with and there was plenty of food! If you are catering an event in the Stanwood area, I recommend calling Island Girl's.

The food was fantastic. Kim and her staff were extremely professional, on time, very attentive and welcoming. They catered our event, but ended up being part of our team bonding! They were such great sports! We would highly recommend Fanfare for any event.

My husband and I had an excellent experience working with Justin and crew and Crave Catering. I requested a plant-based menu with the addition of salmon and the guests couldn't stop raving about the delicious food! My expectations were more than met regarding food quality & creativity, professionalism, and overall organization. Thank you for helping to make our wedding a truly memorable day!

My business event was well taken care of by Mollie and the team at Market Street Catering. They delivered the food on time with everything needed to serve my clients. Everyone was impressed by the selection of food - especially the steak kabobs -they were so tender (very hard to do with catered food)! I recommend them for all my clients for their parties, weddings and events.

Chef Brad produced a fine meal (the crab salad and clam chowder were exceptional). The portions were enormous. Our only criticism was the pace of the four course dinner: it could have been slower and more leisurely. Then again, perhaps that much food just took longer to consume.

    Jeff was very professional and detailed oriented. We have utilized Jeff's services on two very special and important occasions. First occasion was a 60th birthday party with sixty guests for a formal sit down dinner. The appetizers, salads and entrees were beautiful presentations. The second occasion was a week long 90th birthday celebration in a lodge on Samish Island. Jeff provided meals for three out of the six nights. Again, his presentation of all meals was exceptional. The food was incredible and I can't say enough for his imagination and inspiration while planning our events.


    We provide pleasurable dining experiences by serving meals made from only the freshest ingredients and cooked by our chefs with many years in their profession. While offering high quality at very reasonable prices, it is our mission to make your visit to Jalapenos restaurants memorable. We also offer catering services, either delivered or in our separate catering/event room at our Barkley Village location for up to 50 persons or up to 500 persons anywhere in Whatcom County. We can make your next business luncheon or engagement party memorable with menus that are designed to meet your needs and budget. And, don't forget about our famous "big mama" margarita that's voted best in Bellingham by the Western Front newspaper.

    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.
