Herb Scott Catering started in 1999, but its roots go back for generations. Three generations of Scotts have served the Philadelphia food community with amazing eats. Herb’s father owned the Colony Park Inn Restaurant in Philadelphia for many years, and his grandfather was a chef as well. Delicious food and friendly service was always the most important goal in the Scott family, and Herb Scott Catering carries on that proud tradition in serving the Philadelphia food community with fresh food purchased from local vendors and prepared with a special touch of culinary magic. We specialize in upscale versions of classic favorites from many cuisines, from American to French, Moroccan, Spanish, West African, and more.
Herb Scott started working in his father’s restaurant at the age of six and hasn’t lost his love of food service since. He spent four years working with Steve Poses in the Frog/Commissary restaurants, places that are so memorable to the Philadelphia food community. But Herb found his true love in off-premise catering, where he can cook, serve, and clean up the location of your dreams rather than being confined to one restaurant.
Margaret brings fresh vision and enthusiasm to the important role of office manager. She’s ready to help you with information and scheduling for your important event or delivery order, and eager to serve the event needs of the Herb Scott community.
