The oppurtunity may arrise for me to get a catering job serving my Ribs and Chicken. I figure for a party of 50 I'll need about 15-20 slabs of Babies/Spares and about 12-15 whole chickens. For the meat alone it would probably run about $275. After Beans, Mac-n-Cheese, coleslaw salad, sauce and seasonings it will be about $400 total in supplies. Is this spot-on for a party of 50 or should I upcharge the supplies? To figure my charge for providing the food/service, I'd like to know what one should expect to pay me per person or per plate of food? Or is there another way to figure the cost for the customer. I'm thinking I could get away with charging $700 which would net me $300. $700/50=$14 per person. I have no idea what it takes to run this type of service but I know my food is worth the money and that people would enjoy it. Any help would be greatly appriciated!
