Seems the quotes we've had thus far, are that the food charge per person is only about 50% of the total cost of catering. You need to add labour for catering staff, delivery charges, garbage & recycling fees, 12% HST, 18% gratuity, etc. So a quote for $20/person of food quickly adds up to $40/person after taxes & fees. Anyone found a caterer fit for a wedding reception for approx. 250 people that charges not greater than $20/person for buffet food? We've got the venue booked with tables/chairs, linens, setup & takedown, all included. No bar, just wine on the tables. Can you get great dinner food with desert on a $20/person budget?
Yes we used them. We had a buffet and 70 guests. The buffet was tasty and well layedout. The service was very professional too. They were very accommodating to our food sensativities and for a small cost used organic chicken. We choose them because they seemed to over good food and value and they did. I would say an 8 or 9 out of ten.
