The Culinary Catering: Portion Planning Guide mobile app will help you determine how much food to plan per person for an average diner, right from your smartphone or mobile app.

For example, it's a good idea to adjust quantities and portion sizes when planning for a buffet that has several different selections in each category. Guests will not need a full portion of each item in an elaborate menu. Change portion requirements for each type of special event you cater such as less food for cocktail parties and more for picnic events, family reunions or wedding receptions.

Just inputting the guest count will give you a portion plan for all of your special occasion events. Knowing portion sizes will help you to better calculate food costs, amounts of soft drinks, hor d'oeuvres and more. Personalize this app for your specific menu items and bar services from fancy cocktail party foods to a picnic with babyback ribs and potato salad.

Catering portion planning is so much easier with an app personalized for your catering business. Save, share and send your special event plans right from the GoCanvas Cloud or PDF files.

Another planning app to try is our CACFP meal count form.

Don't take our word for it...

“I’m not a tech guy and I was able to pick this thing up in probably an hour, and actually start to build apps. I’ve done them over lunch when I’ve gotten frustrated with a process that didn’t exist in our company. So for non tech people who’ve got a problem, the support here is awesome and I’d recommend it to anybody, not just in our industry.”
