Demographics isn't neccesarily dictating catering prices these days, I'm also in CT and from what I'm seeing everyone is looking for a deal this season!

I just declined a job offer for a doctor, they wanted to feed 80 guests 3 meats, 3 sides & rolls for $1500.00.

The kicker was they also needed to rent tables, chairs & linens for the event, cost on that was $530.00, left ya with less than a grand for food, help, travel & business expenses.......NOT

As a caterer I cant play the guessing game anymore, I ask up front for a budget range so I know where the client needs to be.

Most folks are shopping but I garuntee they are not asking for apples to apples bidding!
