OK guys, I have recently been asked to cater a Christmas Eve dinner for 20....since my children are going to NO I'll probably bid the job.....how many times do you multiply the cost for CE or any big holiday for that matter.

In all respect as well, you must look at who you are catering to. If you make the bid too high, you might not get it. Is your client young or elder? What's thier income? Can they aford your services? You must look at all angles of your clients' needs befor you strike a deal.

I stay with my food< I hire staff to help but I've never not been at one of my parties...
I'm mixed on this one...."my husband may be concerned about the cost and try to talk you down" to my response of "That's the difference between brisket and filet"
So....75% cost up front payment due that night....it will be worth my while or I just don't do it....it's a fairly easy meal

For something like this I would charge about $2500 dedending on type of people they are. It looks like thier not very well off or money would'nt be an issue. So stand your ground and be firm.

and they are not sure how many are going to be in Colorado at the Family compound.......
