Default Need some pricing help

Got asked to quote a lunch for 100 cooked onsite.

Spare ribs
chicken
mac and cheese
beans

I don't know ratio but assume it's probably 70/30 guys

will feed from 12-2

I was going to assume 2-3 ribs per person so if my math is close I need 25 racks.

I was going to do chicken thighs and some legs. I don't know how many to anticipate for here.

The beans I will just buy a big 10lb can. Do I need more than that? Will that be enough for two full pans?

And will two full pans of Mac and Cheese work?

What would be the charge for this? I have seen where you do cost by 3 or something like that.

thanks for the help.

Correct!

1 per person.

a #10 can feeds 26, you'll need 4.

And will two full pans of Mac and Cheese work?

If there FULL!

What would be the charge for this? I have seen where you do cost by 3 or something like that.

I would start at about $13-14 PP for that.

thanks for the help.
Good luck!

I agree with Bubba if it's a drop off. However, it sounds like ou have a buffet type line going on? Serving from 12-2? Are you expecting people to go through the line maybe more than once? If it is, I would bump up the beans and ribs by 20%. Then, charge about $16/pp.

First - Get a contract for a guaranteed number to save any heartache later, and agree what will happen when more show up. If it's 100, put out only 100 plates. To make sure folks don't double up, do a served buffet with a helper or two to move everyone thru the line. Include a dinner roll to take up plate space.

Cooked onsite, 100 folks for this menu, I would go $16 a head.

I agree with the served buffet line also, when you set up the line put the most inexpensive items first this includes the meat (chicken first then ribs...). It gives people the impression of a full plate when they get to the pricier stuff and therefore they won't ask for more...

I just got asked to do a very similar gig today...100 people. This will be my first big catering gig doing the meat and the sides. I've cooked a pile of butts on several different occasions but I've never had to do all of the other stuff with it...I'm green as a gourd when it comes to this so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds good. And since they paid you in advance, I would get some extra meat just to make sure that I didn't run out.

Rod,
When we did the Operation BBQ, two full cans of beans filled a full size pan.
