Food Truck Catering Costs in 2022

Complete guide of all factors of pricing and ways of hiring

Our customers rent food trucks for their catering needs for different reasons, but mostly for something fun and different! We’ve catered to all kinds of parties, but below are the most common requests and some details about pricing.

Office party or corporate event food truck rental at your workplace

Are you at work and you need to put together an office party or a corporate catering event with a food truck catering service company? Do you want to celebrate your workers or some great goals that you have achieved with your working team? Obviously, you will need some good food and drinks at your event.

For a group of 70 people at lunchtime (12 pm to 2 pm) catering service will cost you an average of $1800 for about 90 meals. It is always good to consider an extra 10% of meals for guests who want seconds or want to take an extra meal home for their family. This makes it an average of $20 a meal for most cuisines, from cheesesteaks to burgers, fried chicken, tacos, Asian food, empanadas, vegetarian or vegan (except lobster rolls, where the average catering price is $30 per guest). If you also need dessert at your event, an ice cream truck will cost you an average of $1200 per event for 150 servings of soft vanilla/chocolate cones, which comes to about $8 per serving, or 90 mixed flavors sundaes.

Conference or convention events

If you have a large conference or a big event in a convention center, you know that your guests and visitors will spend long hours walking, talking, and networking. Breaktime comes and everyone will love to grab a savory and delicious meal from our amazing NYC food trucks. Whether it’s a high-volume event like NYC Comic-Con or Rolling Loud music festival where people come by the thousands or just an average event with a few hundred meals, our food trucks will handle the work and get that job done. For situations like that, we have the option of vending or pre-paid catered meals.

Prepaid means that our trucks serve a set amount of meals to the guests who will have meal vouchers, and we will get paid for that agreed amount of money per meal ticket. The average price for most meals is between $17 and $25 depending on what’s in the meal if it comes with a side, and a drink or not.

Vending sales* is another option for very large events, where we set our trucks to make a selling menu with pricing so the guests and attendees can purchase themselves their food with their own money. Please contact us for more info if you’re interested in a vending event. 

Vending events may have a required minimum fee to cover travel and food costs. Give us a call and we will discuss with you, your food options and pricing! Gary 646 399 0645

Your wedding day is one of the more important days of your life. Having a food truck cater for your wedding can be inexpensive and fun!

Traditional wedding catering can cost per plate around $70 per person. With Gary’s Steaks, the cost is more likely to be $35 per person, based on an average of a 100-person guest list and the type of menu items, time of day, and travel distance.
