We cannot speak highly enough of Ken Correll and Diverse Catering. Ken was a fantastic caterer and also the person who coordinated among all vendors to make everything run smoothly--our wedding hero! Ken designed a delicious, abundant menu of vegetarian and vegan foods, locally sourced and well-priced. Ken knows the ins and outs of Bartram's Garden, and it is impossible to imagine having a wedding at Bartram's without Ken. He knows the Bertram's staff, knows how to use the space and manage flow, has a plan B in case of rain and a plan C, and gets along with everyone. He helped manage family, coordinated the flow of the event with the DJ, and somehow still attended to us individually at our reception. We loved our ceremony and reception, and Ken played an integral role in each. A great guy with a great manner. You want Ken on your team!

I worked with Ken Correll of Diverse Catering and words cannot describe how fantastic he is. We met several times over the year leading up to our wedding (obviously, more of them concentrated in the month before the big day) and it was always a pleasure. He knows how to do his job well! The food that Diverse provided was awesome (they catered the rehearsal dinner as well) and Ken was incredibly responsive to any changes that we requested. When it comes to the actual wedding day: Ken and the rest of the staff is AMAZING. Every single employee was attentive - not just to me, my now-husband, and our families, but to the other 150 guests as well! I have gotten so many compliments about the wonderful men and women that bartended, served dinner, and helped with a billion other things (that may or may not have been in their primary job description). Ken and his staff solved every hiccup as it happened and allowed us to just enjoy the food, the company, and the party! Now that wedding planning has ended, my husband and I are looking for other opportunities to hire Diverse.

Diverse Catering came highly recommended to us by our venue (and several other venues we looked at.) From the beginning, Mike worked with us to curate the perfect menu and was able to keep the price within our budget. The food was excellent and we got many compliments from our guests.

The menu selection is very comprehensive and they accommodate many different diets. We had quite a lot of vegetarians attend our wedding and were able to provide vegetarian options for each of our stations. Most of our guests were quite surprised with the variety of food available since most weddings only have a few options for vegetarians.

Mike also helped run the wedding since we did not have a planner. He ran the rehearsal and ceremony, assisted with announcements (letting the band know when to make them) and helped to resolve problems such as, running out of bourbon early in the night and forgetting our cake knife.

Overall, we were very pleased with the food, service and level of professionalism and would highly recommend Diverse Catering to other couples.

Couldn't have been happier with Mike Schmidt and Diverse Catering. After reading all of the glowing reviews we simply had to meet Mike, and I have to say- the reviews were right. After our first meeting with Mike I knew we could trust him. I was a very organized bride and Mike stayed with me every step of the way. My husband and I really just wanted our wedding to be a big party, so we opted for a "cocktail party" style reception with buffet stations around the room and no assigned seating. This posed some "dinner flow" challenges for Diverse, which they tackled like pros. Mike met with me a number of times to ensure I felt comfortable with the layout of the reception, and was never short of suggestions to address any of my concerns. We made some asks of Diverse that were probably not ideal- we brought some of the food in from another vendor and we asked Diverse to buy some of our food from a specific store in our South Philly neighborhood. Not only did Mike not bat an eye at my requests, he worked hand in hand with the other vendors to ensure we were getting exactly what we wanted. On the day of the wedding Mike and team were absolute pros and the service was fantastic. I am still getting compliments on the food, including "the best salmon that I've ever had." We highly recommend Diverse!

My daughter and new son-in-law were married on 10/4/14 at the Fairmount Rowing Club on Boathouse Row in Philadelphia. They worked with Mike Schmidt and the wedding reception was fantastic. Mike and Diverse staff could not have been more attentive and welcoming to all of the wedding guests.
The food was delicious - well presented and no matter where you were in the Boathouse the staff found you to offer scrumptious hors d'oeuvres. Dinner was served family style with fall vegetables, pumpkin ravioli, moist seasoned chicken and beef.
Mike Schmidt kept festivities going on a subtle time line - and the evening flew by.
The bar staff were jovial and very efficient. No lines waiting for a cocktail or draft beer.
At the end of the evening - the Fairmount Rowing Club was returned to original order and you would not have known that a wedding reception was held in the Club.
I work in a church in Villanova and we use caterers frequently. Diverse Catering now ranks at the top of my list for terrific service and value.

My husband and I met with five potential caterers during our planning process and none tasted nearly as good (not even the several that were more costly) as what Ken prepared for us. On top of the fact that we wanted our food to be delicious, we also had to work around the obstacles presented by having our wedding for 170 guests in our parent’s backyard. Ken made us feel confident in his abilities to get the job done and helped add to the vision we already had. He brought up many amazing ideas – food and decor related – that I hadn’t thought of on my own and that truly made our day all the better. He was patient in explaining every angle and scenario to our family well in advance. He made several trips out to the house to see the venue and stood in the rain outside measuring areas for tables and tents all with a smile. He coordinated the order of our rentals from multiple locations to ensure we received what we wanted at the best price. He constantly asked how we were feeling throughout the process. He set the tone that this was our wedding and his goal was for us to have the best time possible. His staff was extremely attentive, professional and friendly. Guests not only commented on the amazing food but also on smiling servers that undoubtedly contributed to the overall happiness of the day. I truly can’t give a high enough endorsement of Diverse. Ken is passionate about his work, sincere about helping a couple get what they want and more than capable of orchestrating a flawless wedding. We had power issues during our wedding and Ken not only made sure the food was out on time and hot but also resolved the power trouble for our band, while managing our space heaters. He was 10 places at once the whole night and our guests never knew it. Diverse didn’t just provide us food for our wedding; they provided on-site coordination that couldn’t have been topped. I am absolutely certain our wedding would not have been nearly as well executed had we chosen anyone else.

Mike at Diverse Catering deserves all 5 stars. The food was incredible, his staff was attentive and fun and my husband and I knew we were in good hands every time we met with Mike. Mike had to bring in a kitchen to our reception site (Boathouse Row) and set up completely out of site. I have had multiple people tell me that the food was the best wedding food they have ever had, a huge compliment!

I would recommend Diverse Catering to any bride and groom, especially those who want delicious food, excellent service and to put their wedding into expert hands.

We used Diverse Catering and Event Design for our daughter's wedding. I cannot thank Ken Correll and his entire staff for everything they did that made our daughter and son in law's wedding such a wonderful event. In addition to the food tasting delicious, we want to be sure to let everyone here know how much effort Ken gave in advance of the wedding with the "event planning" part of his business. In addition to communications via email and phone, Ken met with us a a couple of times in advance, and when he met with us, we were never rushed. His suggestions were well thought out, creative, and when the wedding day arrived, it was clear how great his ideas were. Everything from suggestions on the wedding ceremony itself to the decor and design elements were all made in a way that took into account our wishes--they were never forced.
Finally, his team that worked for the event could not have been better. In addition to the quality of their work, every person we met from that team was incredibly friendly. It was clear that they wanted the wedding day to be special. They also went to great lengths to insure that some of the older guests with physical limitations were taken care of. At the end of the evening and throughout the next day, we kept hearing from our family and friends who wanted to tell us what a wonderful wedding it was, and how much fun they had.
As I told Ken afterwards, our daughter and son in law were thrilled with the entire afternoon and night—and in the end, what more can the parents of the bride ask for?

We met mike over a year and a half ago when searching for a caterer for our 250 person wedding. Mike impressed us with her professionalism, flexibility, and great food and service. Throughout the time that we worked with him he met us multiple times to go over details and planning. He was so much more than a caterer but an event planner. He even came to our rehearsal to run it for us. I did not have to worry on the day of the wedding and I knew things would be taken care of. There were maybe a few minor issues on the day of but everything was taken care of quickly.
