Client Testimonials

We had such an amazing experience with the College! They helped everything fall into place perfectly! They were helpful, considerate and flexible and I would highly recommend them. The food provided by Catering By Design (their caterer) was inventive and delicious. Diana, our liaison, was a joy to work with and helped organize everything. Highly recommend.

Meghan & Stephen

We spent a good portion of our honeymoon talking about how great our wedding was. It was so beautiful, the food was delicious, and your staff was so professional and helpful to everyone. Rich said you are one of the best he’s ever seen. I appreciate how you made everything look so pretty, and all of your attention to detail throughout the whole evening, and during all the planning.

Angela & Rich

Cannot thank you enough for the amazing job you did with my event… rave reviews.

Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine

I can’t say enough! It was beautiful, delicious, elegant, and I didn’t have a care in the world. Your team took excellent, excellent care of all of us. Everyone loved the food and drinks. Gary and his team were consummate professionals. I very much look forward to working with you in the near future.

Michael

These nonprofits in Philadelphia do beautiful work and we are thankful to be able to share some of our favorite dishes at cost through funding from Independence Foundation.

Our freshly sliced roast beef and turkey hoagies w Our freshly sliced roast beef and turkey hoagies were delivered to @projecthomephl this weekend. Do you know where the term hoagie comes from?  Some researchers say this Philadelphia term dates back to World War I, from when the American International Shipbuilding Company was commissioned to make their warships on Hog Island off the Delaware River where the airport currently sits. Employees of these ships were known as “Hog Islanders” and the Italian immigrants made huge meat and cheese sandwiches on Italian rolls which became known as “hoggies” which sounds like “hoagies” with the Philadelphia accent.

Our staff at Catering By Design is proud to be wor Our staff at Catering By Design is proud to be working with two amazing Philadelphia nonprofits @broadstreetmin and @projecthomephl to prepare 2,250 meals per week to those in need. We are providing these meals at cost, funded by the wonderful Independence Foundation. Meals are prepared and packaged by less than 10 members of our staff at any given time. It is all gloved hands-on-deck to keep our burners on in the kitchen, from the President, Director of Operations, HR Manager, Bookkeeper, Sales, and Kitchen Staff all pitching in. For many people, since this will be their only meal each day, we are making sure the food is both healthy and filling. The lunch being prepared today is our hearty Mediterranean Chicken Bowl, packed with quinoa, barley, rice, freekah, bulgur, garlic greens, orange curry chicken, and topped with mint vinaigrette.
