Sounds like BS to me.

If the past vendor did all of that for $10/head for 5 hours for the past three years and did a fantastic job, then why would they look anywhere else?

Well unless of course the vendor told them to go scratch!

Yes, but he needs to come off another $5 bucks a head for service; cheap bastige :mad:

You're supposed to provide all those food & beverages, or just part of it? If so, which part?

Do they give you a guarantee on #of heads? I'd do it for a guaranteed $90K. with the possiblity of making $120K...

You would have to write in # of heads per food type so you didnt take a bath on stuff like Veggie burgers....
The key to the other guy pulling it off, is likely having restaurant to put the stuff out he does not sell ....


Not much data there though.... like is that $10/head head = plate... meaningis it a single pass, or unlimited buffet?
Is that $10 per station.... or one trip thought each? etc. etc....

Could be doable, but need alot more info before you knowwhat you are in for. Might be a big moneymaker depening on how the details are structured for 12K people...

So,
you and Todd up for a roadtrip next summer to split this thing with me?

timzcardz 10-13-2008 01:37 PM

The other question is, what type of event of this?

If it is for an anorexia convention then it could be a real sweet deal. :wink:

On the other hand, do you know how much 12,000 iron workers could eat? :eek:
