J. Scott Catering has an exciting celebration ahead—the full-service, Philadelphia-based caterer is turning 20 years old!

J. Scott Walsh, founder and president of the company, and a culinary arts graduate of Paul Smith’s College, started his catering career in his parent’s home. Then, in 1996, he opened a brick-and-mortar facility in the Malvern Shopping Center; in 2004, he moved the company to its current, 10,000-square foot location.

In addition to this exciting milestone, the company has revealed a new brand and website, which features simple, easy to-use-navigation, a number of photos for event inspiration and a venue finder, which helps customers select facilities based on criteria such as size and location.

But the company still keeps its eye on the prize—its most important goal is serving top-notch culinary delights.

It is the very main service we provide for our clients and continues to be our focus,” says Walsh. “We develop your one-of-a-kind menu, preparing it in our state-of-the-art kitchen and transporting it safely in our refrigerated trucks for cooking and further preparation on site.”
