Client Testimonials

Thank you very much for providing such a beautiful venue and great service for my daughter’s wedding. All the guests raved about how kind the staff was, how great the food was, and how beautiful the setting was. The wedding was a dream come true for Meghan! Your seamless changes from ceremony to cocktails to dinner to dessert was extraordinary. Thank you again for a memorable and lovely evening.

Heather

Thank you for your time and assistance in making Kristen and Karan Wedding ceremony a beautiful and memorable event. We appreciate your patience and guidance throughout the planning process and helping make everything go so seamlessly.

Connie & Mark

Now that the insanity is over, I want to say absolutely from the deepest depths of my heart, thank you for everything for last night. It was honestly a dream come true. You and your staff were incredible, everything was perfect, and I couldn’t have asked for more. John and I are amazed, the guests were amazed, everything was just the best thing ever. So, thank you, thank you, thank you! I was beyond happy the outcome and you’ve been our biggest asset through this whole thing.

Lindsey

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

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.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Catering By Design! 
.
Today our team was able to provide a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for 200 people at @rmhcphilly. We are grateful for the opportunity, for our entire multitalented staff, and for the staff and volunteers at Ronald McDonald House who welcome us into their kitchen and are nothing but hospitable.
We worked with @projecthomephl to coordinate meals for 888 people in need throughout Philadelphia this holiday. 
.
Our kitchen team prepped, cooked, and packed an assortment of meals, sides, desserts and pies, and our warehouse team diligently filled 2 of our trucks and is currently out on the road getting every meal where it’s headed. We are grateful to have such a hardworking team, and happy to help with such a great cause!
