That's a good looking menu, so you don't want to short yourself. I would figure it as 95 adults (40 kids = 20 adults) and charge AT LEAST $13.50 per person. My .02 Good luck!

I am real skeptical about who I do drop off jobs for. Family and friends are one thing, I like to be present at the parties I cater. What if you serve potato salad and the client does not have it of ice? who is to blame when someone gets sick be careful

There would be a ton of lost business if you had to serve every job due to worrying about foodborne illness.....simply type up a sheet entitled "how to care for your que and include temps for sides.....I would also recommend a simple statement at the bottom that once food is in the possession of customer that they agree to properly care for and that you are no longer responsible for it's care and have them sign off on it when you drop the job off. As for costs.....three times your costs is a general rule to follow when labor is not involved with an added cost for delivery and mileage. Hope this helps.
