Ralph and Bubbles BBQ were amazing for our rehearsal dinner in Holcombe, WI (October 2016). We booked him with less than 10 days to the rehearsal dinner without having had the food before nor meeting in person. Ralph came to us, completed set up and take down. Our menu consisted of: pulled chicken, pulled pork, cowboy beans, potatoes, salad and 4 BBQ sauces for up to 40 people. The price was very reasonable. Ralph and his team were true professionals and the food was FANTASTIC. Everyone raved about the food for the entire weekend and we are still talking about how great the pulled pork and cowboy beans were. There was more than enough food for everyone and we had a few leftovers. If you're looking for a BBQ style meal, catered to your location, I highly recommend Bubbles BBQ.

Jan was amazing right from the start! I was looking for someone to deliver food to my friend at her mother's house, who was in hospice care. Not only did Jan come up with a FRESH menu from scratch, but she also had experience working with hospice patients, and was just wonderful to my friend and her sisters with some encouraging words as well as some delicious food, enough to feed a small army! She really went the extra mile to make sure everything was just perfect for them from start to finish and was great at communicating back and forth. I highly recommend her and would definitely hire her again!

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.
