thanks to all for your advice and insight on my previous question.hopefully someone knows alittle about catering services for movie productions? my main Q. is pricing. ijust received a price list from a co. that sells and leases mobile kitchens. to rent there smallest units (24-28 ft.)cost $3600 a week or $7000 per month. with a $1.50 per mile round trip delivery charge.would this be the amount charged to a client if i owned such a M.K.?i'll be serving 100-300 crew 3 times a day . the length of the shoot is unknown to me now. but there are several productions available to me through this company.what is the method for pricing ?
i preformed a search on the subject and understand there are diffrent classes of service.and that its not as profiable as other forms of catering.but i'm young and hungrey and look foward to the challenge.but i'm not stupid i realize i'll be working 16-18 hours a day. for this amount of work i expect compensation to the tune of $700-$1000 clear daily. does anyone have any thoughts on my estimate?any light shed on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
