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.


Everything was so great! Couldn’t have asked for a better evening. It went off without a hitch!
We received MANY compliments about the food! A lot of people said it was the best food they ever had at a wedding!! Also we had lots of compliments about the wait staff— attentive and friendly!

We had a wonderful time partnering with One North Broad’s virtual Gateway to the Holidays event! Each attendee received their bag ahead of time contact free! The contents had the ingredients for mocktails, cocktails, an appetizer and dessert. CBD staff then showed our guests how to prepare each item. ONE staff had a guided tour, bingo and more! Contact us at for info on hosting virtual events!

We have been beyond humbled and honored to be a part of the Step Up to the Plate program since March. Our amazing staff joined the fight immediately and prepares thousands of hearty meals for our fellow Philadelphians each week. 
The teams from Broad Street Ministry, Prevention Point Philadelphia, and SEAMAAC, along with the City of Philadelphia, local caterers, and non-profits have served our most vulnerable during the COVID-19 crisis.
Our original plan was 7 weeks but due to the overwhelming need we have now been extended to March, 2021. Step Up to the Plate collectively has provided over 375,000 meals to Philadelphians and this need is only getting 
more desperate as winter looms ahead. If you can help in any way, please visit for more details.

We love hearing about our staff which we too believe is the best! 

“The staff that worked our wedding was out of this world. From the way they dressed to the way they interacted with our guests-- folks are still talking about how impressed they were with the team. My husband and I had a dedicated staff member who made sure we had everything we needed BEFORE we even needed, and that small detail truly made a world of difference.“
