Gary: Drop offs are easy for a small party, plus it's good PR to promote your skills. But your time and knowledge is your stock and trade. " Abe Lincoln" My min. is 25 people and every one knows that. But if I get a call from a regular customer, how can I say no. I have picked up more jobs down the road after doing a small deal it's worth it. But the customer has to know that your geared for larger gigs. I charge 3 times my cost to 50 people and 4 times my cost to 25 people. Under 25 they are charged 5 times the cost. Just my .2 cents.

this has been a good repeat client and i just got a call yesterday that the number went to 20.. so I have settled on $30 per which is $600... not quite 4X cost but for a good client I can live with that.

Here;s what I come up with 20 people:

Tray of chicken Marsala, = $50-$60
Tray of Rib Eye, = $225-$375
Tray of Smashed potatos = $25-$30
Tray of Steamed Veggies = $20-$25
Crab Dip/crackers = $40-$60
Tortelinni Kabobs =$ 40-$50


If you went to a resturant, and ordered a meal like that it would be about $35-$40 a plate...

Marsala is labor intenstive, ribeye cheap at $15 a pound, crab meat up here is $23 a pound, , and tortelinni kabobs are a pain to put together..

I think you did well with $600, especially if can kep your cost to under $120..

Another great pricing job !!!
