How do caterers charge for an event?


At Robert & Victor, we always ensure that we charge correctly and accurately or any event. It’s one of the reasons why we’re successful, and today we will discuss our secrets to success. 

Food and drink  

With any event, it’s important that food and drink preparation is handled without any hassle and it’s of the highest quality. High-quality ingredients make all the difference, and that’s why we’re passionate about using only the finest locally sourced ingredients from across Greater Manchester. All food is freshly prepared on the day of your event and refrigerated ready to be delivered on schedule.

But how do we charge for it? We take into account many factors, such as what the customer wants, the quantity of the ingredient needed, the longevity of the product before its sell-buy date, plus much more. It all comes down to the customer’s requirement as we will use their event as a foundation to collect the produce that’s needed.

We will provide a bespoke quote that includes a fair price for the type of event they require. Included will be how much food, drink and staff will cost, and if the event is likely to be a big occasion then we will ensure plenty of food is available in different options. We also understand some people might require halal or vegan options, and we are happy to ensure their needs are accommodated. 

Our immediate priority is providing the customer with what they want for a competitive price, so we can continue catering for their events in the future.

As we’re based in Manchester City Centre, we mainly provide our customers with events in this area, however, we do supply a couple of places in Cheshire, and most recently Wigan. We primarily deliver in Manchester as this is the heart of many customers who have event-requiring needs. The city is full of unique and historical venues, which we admire immensely, and it allows us to connect with the community on a regular basis.

We’re conveniently positioned to deliver a hassle-free and reliable service to local businesses that are on the lookout for a Manchester-based catering partner. As a small run business, building a fantastic relationship with our clients is paramount. We want to be your go-to caterer for all events, and we’ll always go the extra mile to meet your requirements.

If you are based outside of our parameters then there will be an additional charge. But trust us when we say, the extra cost is very reasonable and we encourage all outsiders to invest their time and money with us. We guarantee that you will not be disappointed with our services. The quality of our food and drink is unparallel and the staff run the show smoothly and efficiently without any hiccups.

Service arrangements

Once you have given the green light to our bespoke quote, we will begin processing the service arrangements needed for your event. Included in the price of your requirement will be a list of how much each service will cost, and what we will do to provide them for you. 

You can rest easy knowing that we’ve got the main event covered – a fabulous occasion with unforgettable food for your guests to enjoy. You’ll notice straight away why we charge our prices for the event, you’re paying for a first-class service – which we can deliver.

At Robert & Victor, we’re all about going above and beyond, and if you’d like our caterers to stick around and help with the serving and clean-up, we’re more than happy to do so. From planning the timeline of your day/night to full delivery management and clear-up, our team can take everything off your hands.

Our promise to you is to deliver the best catering Manchester offers, that is freshly prepared and on schedule without hassle.
