Default Half & Full Pans - How many does it feed?

I've been through the last 20 pages and maybe I missed it and if I did I appoligize for that. I'm trying to figure out yield for a half pan and a full pan full of these sides, baked beans, mac & cheese, corn on the cob, and cole slaw. My thinking is 4oz per side if only two sides. If it goes to 3 or more sides then drop down to 3oz per side.

We have always found this handy PDF to be very accurate regarding serving sizes per equipment items, etc.

2 1/2 hotel pan holds roughly 50 servings give or take. One filled with baked beans will feed 60-70 people yet it will only feed 40 for mac n cheese so it really depends on what you put in them. As a guideline though you can figure a minimum of 25 serving from a half pan and 50 servings from a full. Bizznessmans links show an accurate quantity for maximum capacity but I find if I fill them that much I end up spilling it everywhere so that is why I figure 50.

Anyone have an idea of how many half ears of corn on the cob would serve from both the half and full pans?

Good catch HBMTN. I didn't think to mention that fact. Filling to the max capacity just causes waste so adjusting down on those numbers a bit is very good advice.
