Here are links to a number of similar questions with answers FYI - though yours is small so there will likely be a minimum charge of maybe around $300-400 which may make your per-square foot total comes out higher than these answers:

Plus probably about $150 electrician for the electrical modification - note that if the box being eliminated is within the backsplash area, he cannot just splice the wires at the box and bury it under the tile - junction boxes have to be permanently accessible, so unless you want a permanent cover plate there he has to run new wires between the remaining boxes to eliminate one - unless the one being eliminated is the last one on the circuit, in which case he can just cut the wires and abandon the box behind the tiule without any drywall removal needed.
