C&J Catering debuted in 2004 as personal chefs for hire setting out to expose a small group of clients to their amazing passion for great food! Word quickly spread about the quality of food and tremendous flexibility in menu planning C&J Catering provided and its owners reacted to the increased demand for much larger catering services.

In early 2006, C&J Catering moved to its current location in the heart of downtown Mechanicsburg. Now managed by a single owner along with a staff of the most talented, dedicated and hardworking individuals; C&J Catering has quickly become the talk of the town with a vast array of corporate, private and public clientele.

And while the business has grown, our fundamental philosophy has not changed. We are committed to providing excellent food and first-rate service while having flexibility in menu planning and execution that is comparable to none. C&J Catering will give you everything you want and more. Call us today to discuss your next event and see for yourself what everyone else is talking about. Read less

Food was delicious and reasonably priced, can you ask for more? I was provided with a wedding planner who was very attentive and responded to needs/questions in a very timely manner. Although I did not use other services for my wedding, they provide floral arrangements and decor - so you can leave all of the work up to them and they will provide you with a flawless wedding (in terms of food and decor:))

We used C&J Catering for our wedding at Ironstone Ranch and they were so awesome! One thing that is so impressive about them is how flexible they are about the type of food and budget. I worked closely with Contessa throughout the planning process and she was always amazing at capturing the slightly-more-elegant BBQ feel we wanted (with a Philly touch!) we wanted for our ranch wedding with awesome treats like pulled pork sliders on cheddar scones, mini Philly cheesesteaks, and delicious family-style BBQ food. The food was all so delicious and not your typical "wedding food." We are still getting compliments on it!

The people at C&J are absolutely wonderful to work with. We had the privilege of working with three C&J staff - Contessa, Natalie, and Sara-Jane - and there were all so friendly, helpful, detail-oriented, and incredibly competent. My groom and I are both very indecisive and they made the whole process so easy.

One piece of advice - definitely spring for their day-of coordinator! We had Sara-Jane coordinating our wedding day and she was INCREDIBLE. Everyone involved in the wedding commented on how she was the best wedding coordinator they'd ever seen - sweet, fun, and so on top of every little detail! She made the day flow so seamlessly, even with tons of mishaps like pouring rain and a lost wedding ring (long story...). She has the best attitude and somehow managed to be both unobtrusive and completely accessible. As one of my bridesmaids said, "Every time I started thinking we needed something, she would magically appear right next to me!"

Thank you C&J for such an amazing experience!

When we booked our wedding at Ironstone Ranch, we ended up booking with C&J just by default, which turned out to be one of the best decisions we could have made for our wedding. Everyone at C&J was friendly and helpful, and very knowledgeable.

We decided to go with their ‘budget’ option for our dinner, but it definitely didn’t taste like the budget meal! My husband talked about the food our entire two-hour ride home from our tasting, and couldn’t wait to eat the leftovers the day after the wedding.

We had a few guests at our wedding with very severe food allergies, and they worked with us to make sure that every guest had a delicious meal for dinner. They also provided a vegetarian option for our few vegan guests, and kids meals for the kiddos!

Our coordinator, Sara Jane, went out of her way to ensure that our day was absolutely perfect. Besides all the help she offered before the wedding, giving us ideas about how to decorate and even throwing in a few extras for us, she was with us the day of the wedding, making sure we had a few minutes to sit down and eat, ensuring we had drinks, etc. It isvery evident how much she cares about her job and the couples she works with; she was such a pleasure to work with!

Overall, we both loved C&J and would recommend them to anyone!

I cannot say enough great things about C&J Catering! Contessa worked with us in planning our event and did an absolutely amazing job! She is extremely talented at what she does. Jamie was there for our special day and helped make everyone in our bridal party feel comfortable and provided us with tips and advice. Jamie is an incredible person and anyone would be lucky to have her as their wedding coordinator! The food was to die for! We still have guests telling us how amazing everything was. C&J has the greatest staff and I have heard nothing but amazing things about them. I would recommend them to anyone getting married or holding an event. They are the best!

As this process began from several states away, C&J and Contessa were fantastic to work with to plan my wedding. It didn't matter how many emails I sent, Contessa was always quick to respond and work with me to get everything just right. When I was finally able to make a visit to the offices, Contessa and their chef went out of their way to prepare a tasting for me because that's what other potential brides would get at a bridal show. Since I was living in another state at the time and couldn't come to shows, they wanted to give me the same treatment. NONE of the other caterers I spoke to or visited even made an attempt to give me the same service. Every single cent we spent for the services C&J provided was more than worth it. I highly recommend using them to anyone - no matter how elaborate or simple your wedding reception.

First, I'm the proud mother of the bride - the 2nd hardest person to please at a wedding.
C & J Catering transformed the 71,000 sf Antique Auto Museum in Hershey into a three-tiered gala for my daughter's New Year's Eve (12.31.11), 250-person, over-the-top wedding.
When guests arrived they were greeted with a human table with pre-poured glasses of Moscato. The decor in the lobby was simple and elegant as to not compete with the already-in-place cars.
In the rotunda, they designed a custom alter / backdrop and made the large and open space very chapel-like.
After the 6:30 PM ceremony, guests traveled to the main lobby, car-viewing area and were treated to incredible appetizers, including mini cheese steak subs, crab cakes, etc. The decor throughout this level was amazing, however, C & J's true passion for the unexpected and creative, was saved for the lower level where guests dined, danced and brought in the New Year.
C&J started with cement walls and floors and transformed this space into a New Year's Eve extravaganza that could only rival Time's Square in brilliance, passion and precision. Only the pictures can truly tell this story, albeit the words first-class, signature, unique, bedazzling, unbelievable and brilliant were on everyone's mind. The talented and seasoned culinary team wowed guests with beef tenderloins at carving stations, mashed potato bars, salad bars and a trendy noodle bar. Short lines and lots of conversations. As the parents, we've taken a lot of credit for making this event memorable for so many people, but the night was owned by C&J. They are remarkable, talented, personable individuals who have discovered greatness.

Picking a caterer for our wedding seemed daunting. We talked to several companies but C&J stood out for their high quality foods, creative ideas and personable staff. If we had to pick a caterer again, we’d pick C&J.

Attention to detail is a C&J forte! The entire C&J team got to know us and our style which was very special because they were able to customize everything to our liking.

Jamie Berger is a stellar day-of coordinator! She effortlessly led the ceremony rehearsal the day before, created the wedding day timeline and carried it out with precision and ease. She was also a step ahead of us and literally predicted our every need. Someone with her experience is invaluable on your wedding day.

Melissa Pearl arranged breath-taking flowers for wedding. Her creative eye for detail and beauty were just perfect for the type of flower arrangements we wanted. The blooms were huge, fresh and lasted through the entire day and night. The flowers were more than we dreamed of and all our guests thoroughly enjoyed them.

The food served at our wedding was delicious! Many guests said it was the best beef tenderloin, crab cakes and vegetables they had ever had at a wedding!

We did not have to worry about anything at all during the wedding day set up because we truly trusted their entire staff. And, as expected, everything turned out just as we hoped. Everything was set up just as we described with some surprise additions.

The staff at C&J is easy to work with, very polite and professional. They have great ideas and recommendations and work well with each other and the bride and groom.

C&J created a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere for us, our family and guests at our wedding. We highly recommend C&J to couples looking for a caterer, event coordinator and florist for their special day.

C&J Catering was an outstanding find! We truly attribute the beauty of our wedding weekend to them! Jamie Berger is an amazing wedding planner and also owner of the company. We hired her as "day of wedding planner" and she was absolutely worth every penny...not to mention that when the owner of the company is working your site, so is the "A" team from the company. Jamie was amazing at running our rehearsal the night before (rain at the rehearsal for an outdoor ceremony and she figured out how and where to change the rehearsal to without me having to worry about it at all), she was on-site basically the entire Saturday of the wedding and was back early Sunday morning to afternoon as she ran our brunch...I'm not sure when she slept!

C&J staff is wonderful. Highly courteous, flexible and professional. Our guests are still talking about all of the amazing food! The food was always the right temperature and always kept "looking" appealing - even in steamy July! As I stood in the tent waiting to walk towards the ceremony and down the aisle, I was truly touched by how many of the C&J staff were excited for me! These employees are definitely in the right field, they all worked so hard to make my wedding day amazing.

Melissa Pearl did an amazing job with our flowers. She went above and beyond, adding "extra" beautiful touches in several areas and not charging us for these.

Marlo was fantastic and very reachable, we rented many items through C&J and she was great about checking and re-checking tableclothe sizes and colors, glass types, etc.

I have to say that I also love that C&J is a woman-owned business and that most of the leaders in the business are females. It's important to me to support woman-owned businesses and without reservation I can do so with C&J!

We could not have had more of a dream wedding, and C&J played a crucial part in making that happen. From our very first meeting I knew right away that they were going to be the perfect partners. They brought new, exciting ideas to the table and also did everything they could to make my ideas a reality. Everyone always talks about how planning a wedding is overwhelming, but i honestly can say that C&J not only made it much easier - but made it so much fun! I fully trusted them and would recommend them to any bride!

I would definitely recommend C & J Catering for anyone's wedding. I wouldn't say the entire process was seamless and stress-free, but they did a really great job in the end.

We had a buffet dinner and appetizers, which a lot of my guests said was the best wedding food they've ever had. Everything was really tasty and still hot!

I also really recommend them for wedding flowers. They did my bouquet, as well as the bridesmaid's and the boutienneres and corsages. They were so beautiful and they worked really well within my budget! It was so nice to be able to be able to only work with one vender for both food and flowers.

They were also really flexible with changes to the contract. At the last minute, we realized we forgot cake cutters and champagne flutes and they took care of that the night before!

The value is great too. We discussed my budget when we met and I kind of realized that it was a little low for what we wanted. They really helped me figure out things to cut, but also things that were worth paying a little more for. I was a little shocked by how much table/chair rentals are, but I never felt like they were taking advantage of me.

All in all, they really helped me have a great wedding day and I would definitely use them again in the future.

C&J Catering did an amazing job catering my wedding! Everything looked beautiful and they took care of every detail (like decorating the mantle in our reception hall). They did everything we asked, such as arranging a beer pairing with our dinner (which they had never done before), bringing us appetizers while we took pictures, and decorating tables perfectly. They were open to any suggestions we had, and also had many of their own when we were unsure of how to proceed.
We received many compliments on the food! We had a family style meal and it turned out amazing. They made cheesesteak egg rolls just for us (we're from Philadelphia area), and everybody loved them! Out of 120 guests we didn't have a single complaint.
Contessa and Marlo were both very accessible via e-mail and phone. I received very quick responses every time I had a concern or question. During the wedding, every request I had was completed immediately.
I would recommend C&J catering to anybody!

I would definitely recommend C&J for catering services. Our choice in caterer was one of the decisions that made the biggest impact on our event and I'm so glad we went with C&J.

Communication before the event was very good, not perfect, but very good. I worked with Marlo and for the most part I enjoyed working with her. She gave me the impression a few times she may be working too many events but in the end she was an effective liason and many of the specifics that we outlined for the wedding were executed. One example of something that was missed was that I asked for there to be some appetizers and a bottle of champagne for my husband and I after the ceremony and unfortunately it wasn't done. However, she is knowledgeable and she made great suggestions about what type of dinner service would work for our wedding as well as specifics on set up of the venue.

The wedding venue looked beautiful and that included C&J's set up. They did a great job with the food buffet, cocktail hour set up, and carving station. I believe many members of the team collaborated on this including Melissa. The food was very good and the staff was extremely professional and helpful; they brought me a heaping plate of food right after I sat down and the bar ran efficiently all night.

Collectively, the company really is excellent and provided a great meal and professional staff for my event. There were a few hiccups along the road but I expected that to be the case - putting together such a large event is complicated and the important things were done well.

Melissa from C&J also provided the wedding party flowers and they were perfection. She listened to what I was looking for and did such an amazing job executing it. I loved, loved, loved them all and really could not have been happier. She delivered them to my home right on time and it was a great experience working with her on the flowers. She was also present at the wedding and I believe helped out tremendously with everything.

"Simply put, C&J catering is the best. After bouncing around the region in search of a good, honest caterer, we finally discovered C&J. From our first consultation to the end of our reception, the entire staff went above and beyond to accommodate our every need (even when we had uninvited extras show up for our tasting!) The entire experience was easy and enjoyable. There was not one time when we doubted their ability. We were married at Sweet Arrow Lake in Pine Grove, which was then a new venue for them. They worked seamlessly with us and the facility manager to coordinate everything from the load-in of the tables and chairs to break down and clean up. Everything about our experience,,,the food, the service, the price...all outstanding. Do yourself a favor and sign the contract, they pretty much take care of the rest. Thank you C&J for making our day so wonderful!" Tiffany and Mike Piaskowski

I wanted to pass along a message of sheer gratitude and adoration for Contessa, Melissa and the entire team that pulled off my wedding. It's a rare day when a bride is truly able to say that her wedding day was perfect, but can honestly attest that mine was perfection. I was blown away by the decor, flowers, details, you name it, I loved it! All of my guests continue to gush over how beautiful absolutely everything was, from the seating, to the bar, to the candles. Contessa thought of everything, and made all of my wants and needs materialize. Unbelievable! Melissa arranged the most beautiful flowers ever! And, Dylan was soooooo impressed with his cupcake. That was awesome that Melissa thought of a way to give Dylan a special moment. Perfection. Every detail. I will forever be a fan of C & J, Contessa and Melissa. Thank you so much for making Marco and my day extraordinary! Melissa E.

What an amazing team they have! I cannot say enough positive things about C&J Catering. I had never heard of them before when a friend referred me. They were so great to work with, I am so happy I chose them. They even put pictures of my wedding up on their website!
