Makes a big difference. A lot won't eat a sammy just take a little meat adn sure won't eat 2 types of meat at 4 oz each. General rule fo thumb is if you need food for 200 sammys at 4 oz or 800 oz give them 880. But it doesn't apply in this case.

My price is based on you not supplying the equipment for keeping it hot or any serving dishes, plates, forks, napkins, etc.

And that's an issue for me as people just don't know how to safely handle food for 6 hours. I would hope you are servsafe certified and if so you'd knpw what can go wrong. Best case is keeping meat in a oven and it will dry out especially chicken.

If it was me I'd be there looking after the food. It's your reputation if they just dry out the meat or beans.
