I just did a similar gig for an 40th anniversary party. Knew the family so I planned on eating some of the cost. I also threw in sausage & peppers and mac-n-cheese instead of stew. Food/supply costs ran just under $600 and I charged $20 a head. I cooked, had 1 person prep, 2 monitor the buffet line. When line slowed down 1 of my staff would walk around and tidy up tables, throw stuff out. Bill was $2k, at the end of the night they paid us $2500 for the great food and professional service. Just remember food is only part of the experience that you provide.
