When I was shopping around for a venue/caterer, I found that pretty much all charged a service fee.  My current venue now (I’m getting my catering done through there, also), charges 20% service fee + 6% tax on top of the pp price.  I also found that some places will already include it in their price quote.  Just ask the vendor if their price includes tax and any applicable fees.

Yes, usually. Here it’s usually a 20% service charge and 7% sales tax.

Our venue is the only place that included both of those costs in the price.
