Business catering clients are spending $4,000 per month, according to 11 years of data collected by ezCater outlined in a joint report with Technomic. The biggest spenders in catering are coming from the IT/technology, construction, healthcare, finance, consulting and advertising/PR industries.
The average check for a business order is $275 to cover about 21 people per check. The cost is $13.10 per person and the menu has about 3.5 unique items, ezCater partner marketing manager Tina McDonough said during the CaterUp conference Tuesday.
Lunch makes up 81% of orders, but breakfast and snack time catering is growing fast, ezCater CMO David Meiselman said at the conference.
