Ok Guys... Gimme a price

I have been asked to do food for an event in September for 75-80 people. (contractor types)

Pulled pork (reheated on site)
Chicken (legs and thighs cooked on site)
Cole Slaw
Beans
Buns
Dessert (probably costco cake)

and.. I suppose I will be doing plates and utensils. They will be providing drinks.

ok... now... let me add this bit of information. This is for the local chapter of the Association of General Contractors of which the firm I work for is a member. AND.. in previous years another member has done steak sandwhiches on their large grill which they will be doing again this year.. so there will be other food there.

So.. what do you guys think would be fair pricing?

I say stick to your price sheet Gary. I think those are very reasonable prices. And let me know if you need a hand.

problem is that it doesnt really follow my standard pricing and they are having other food, only 2 sides, and they are doing their own drinks. I am figuring my actual cost to be around 250 bucks which is just over 3 bucks a person for 80 people... so I figure 750-800 bucks gets me a profit of $500.

6. Larry drinks beer for breakfast. You will need more beer.

7. In the unfortunate event that Larry has a restroom emergency,
he expects you to help him "clean up".


8. After that, he's thirsty. Have plenty of beer.
