    My daughter’s wedding day was wonderful, in part because of S&B Event Concepts and Catering. Sodiah was fantastic from the first meeting. She accommodated our schedule for the tasting, helped with appropriate menu choices and executed the “day of” with flair and genuine care. I was amazed at how aptly the staff set up in a difficult venue. Of course, all weddings have some snag or another. You would not know it at this wedding because Sodiah and her staff helped keep us calm, anticipated our needs and made us feel so special. The food was delicious, EVERYTHING from appetizers to dessert! We did not serve any meat and no one missed it. Whatever you serve, make sure to include the mac& cheese. If you want personalized service and exceptional food, S&B is your best option.

    Sodiah was caring, helpful, and reliable. She replies 7 days a week and always has an answer. Food was delicious as well. We were lucky to have her and would highly recommend to others!

    Book this company!
    Sodiah was so professional, nice, and easy to work with! Everybody loved the food, being the bride I unfortunately did not get much of a chance to eat, but everybody told me it was great! Especially the appetizers. Her staff was super professional and I would highly recommend her to anybody and wish her the best of luck with the restaurant :) Next time I'm in Philly I can't wait to give it a try. (She was even great dealing with my Mother, which is an accomplishment in herself, I hope my Mom never sees this review lol)

    Sodiah and her team catered my step daughter's wedding in our backyard. It was perfect. The food and service was outstanding. Her and her team went above and beyond from the planning process right up through the reception they were outstanding. My guests loved the food and complimented their service all night. I highly recommend S&B for any event that you want great food and a great staff!!

    From the moment that I contacted them straight on through to the end of our event, S&B Events was a pleasure to deal with and very attentive. Our event took place over a couple of hours and not only was the food very tasty (lots of rave reviews from our guests!), S & B took care to ensure that the food was replenished as needed and the proper temperature maintained throughout. A great experience from start to finish!

    S&B Event Concepts and Catering was very accommodating and flexible to our needs while planning my sister’s bridal shower. The food was fantastic! They have a great selection to choose from, and provided everything we needed for our Italian theme. I would absolutely recommend S&B Event Concepts and Catering; their experience and flexibility is top notch.
  • Chesna M. Apr 5, 2016
    Our family suffered the sudden death of my sister in law. During this difficult time we needed a caterer for the Repast within a few days. We called S&B Catering and found Sodiah to be an excellent choice. She quickly helped me select a menu that was both delicious and budget friendly. She and her staff were professional and very accommodating. Everyone asked who we used and expressed how tasty the food was and pleasant the staff was. The presentation of the food was excellent. Our family was grateful for Sodiah's services. Chesna M.

    I was looking to cater my wedding this December and had set up a tasting at $50 a person for the 12th of February. I had questions before committing the money to this business. After over 48 hrs waiting for a response I emailed saying they were no longer needed if this was the service I would receive. I got an email saying there had been a family emergency and after emailing her my sympathy and offering to reschedule I got a blow off email from her. No wonder no one has ever heard of this company if this is how they do business.
    Sodiah T. Feb 11, 2016

    Death in a family is not a blow off. The email you received is truly sincere and very honest. It stated how, under the circumstances, we would not be able to provide you with our best service (something we like to provide all of our clients with) at this time and wished you well. We didn't lie or treat you unkindly. We pride ourselves on building great relationships with every one of our clients and conduct ourselves in a professional manner. Humility is a very good quality to have. Negative attitudes are not, that is why we continue to wish you well. .

    Sodiah is calm, cool, and collected even when unforeseen glitches arise. She helped to keep my anxiety level low during our wedding reception by moving things along. So glad I had her help on the big day.

    As a part time caterer and chef, I have had the privilege of working with S&B on a couple of events, and will say that not only was it a pleasure to work with them but that also the food the event and the staff were all phenomenal. It was a really nice experience and not only would I work with them again I would highly recommend their services.

    Sodiah and her amazing team helped my fiance and I throw our rehearsal party. We had about 70 guests and everyone raved about the food. Sodiah worked with me to plan our hors d'ouevres menu. On the night of the rehearsal, Sodiah and her team executed everything flawlessly! The food was amazing and Sodiah is such a delight. I highly, highly recommend S&B Event Concepts and Catering for any catering need. Great Job!!!

    We had a tasting today, with Sodiah and Jim, the chef...and hired them on the spot! Not only is the food delicious and fresh, but Sodiah and Jim were delightful to be with! They took so much time to talk with us and work within our budget-- there's no " package deal" or set menus, as we have experienced interviewing other caterers. You tell them what your budget is, and they are so helpful and wonderful...we feel so blessed! Our daughter's wedding is in June, and we so look forward to not only a lovely, succulent meal-- we are excited to be with them! FIVE STAR NOW, AND I'M SURE IT WILL END UP A FIVE+ STAR ON JUNE 18th! We highly recommend this catering team....AWESOME.

    Sodiah and her team did a fantastic job catering our wedding! She was super easy to contact before the wedding and fulfilled our last minute requests! The food was absolutely perfect, as well as its presentation, and I had many guests complimenting the fantastic job they did! They were very organized that day and her team was always ready to help when you needed something! Overall everything turned out as perfect as can be!

    I used S&B Event Concepts and Catering for a last minute in-home affair and I needed catering quick. It was my first time using a catering company. I setup a last-minute romantic in-home catered dinner for my wife and me. I got rid of the dogs and the kids. I shampooed the carpets and had a long-desired present ready for my wife when she walked in. In addition, when my wife walked in the S&B hostess / waitress and chef were standing (professionally dressed) adjacent to the dining room table. My wife was very surprised. The multi-course dinner, desert and event went perfectly. I worked with Sodiah from start to finish. She talked to me on the phone at times I liked -- at odd hours on occasion as she responded immediately once to my late-evening email. She always responded quickly to my calls. The food menu was huge. I picked out just the stuff I wanted. And, she kept it within my budget and not once suggesting items to raise my spending. We double checked all items and expectations including but not limited to the food selections and preparation desires, timing, supplies, etc. The table setup was complete with fine china and silverware, candles, white linens and other stuff to make it look very special. They used our kitchen and left it spotless (including the trash removal) when they left. She and her team were great to work with. They were pleasant, on-time and very professional. They remained out of site. They exceeded my expectations. They will be my go-to for in-home catering and catering for other events. I will call further in advance next time. I promise.

    Sodiah was very helpful and patient with us while we were deciding what was best for the event we were hosting. We had to change our order multiple times and each time she has no problem helping us. S&B events went above and beyond what they were paid to do by supplying beautiful linens, extra cups, and a great center piece. This really made the event look great and very professional. Everyone that attended also complimented the food multiple times. I highly recommend using this company for anything you could possible need.
  • Charles Patsy B. Feb 8, 2015
    We hosted a dinner party for friends and I reached out to Sodiah to prepare and deliver the menu items. Menu included Barbeque chicken, macaroni & cheese and string beans. We tried Sodiah's barbecue chicken in the past and knew it was delicious, but this was the first time we tried Sodiah's macaroni & cheese and I'm glad we did. It was delicious. Our guests were pleased overall with the entire meal. Service and delivery was prompt and professional.

    My fiance and I hired Sodiah and her team after a delightful and delicious tasting for our wedding reception. We attended the tasting with a bundle of nerves- every bride wants everything to be just right. We were immediately put at ease with Sodiah's warm personality and attention to every detail suggested in the menu. The presentation was lovely with a creative sunflower centerpiece (I'd never seen one done like that before) and the beverages were tasty as well. The menu was TO DIE FOR;from hors d'oeuvres to the main entree, we were thoroughly impressed with the taste and presentation. Even my dad was impressed and he is the toughest critque I know. The chef even made sure to mention how he prepared his food and even came out to chat with me and my family. Also, Sodiah is extremely helpful and responsive to all form of communication which is something I value. Sodiah is truly a master at hospitality and I can't wait to work with her and her team for my June 2015 wedding.

    Years of being a union organizer, I would only hire caterers that came highly recommended. However, modern technology (web surfing) lead me to S&B Event Concepts and Catering. Our theme was a kick off to summer. Our union was not only extremely happy with the food, but the personal service was great as well. Now, it's my turn to return the favor and highly recommend S&B Event Concepts and Catering. Truly looking forward to using them again for our next event. AFGE Local 3631

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Most of our clients communicate by email so, we discuss menu selections, date, time, number of guests and location of the event via email. We then schedule a time and location that is convenient to personally meet one another, taste our food and tweak anything that's needed. We usually end up laughing, hugging and becoming good friends!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
My staff and I have over 20 years of experience in catering weddings, large and small events along with corporate galas. We are licensed and insured.
What types of customers have you worked with?
All types! We love our work and that comes with all types of clients..
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Catered at the 2016 Democratic National Convention here in Philadelphia! Won 2015 TOP CHEF at Penn Suburban's Chamber Cook-Off! Our Macaroni-N-Cheese Bar won "The Fan's Favorite" at the 2014 Pearle S. Bucks Top Taste Competition! You have to try this with our many different toppings...EXCELLENT!!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
We at S&B understand that planning a life event is not as easy as it seems. Find a vendor you trust that has a rapport with other vendors. This can lower your expense while maximizing your time.
