Catering Customer Testimonials
Below are just a few of the many wonderful messages that we have received from our satisfied catering customers. We are always proud to work with individuals and organizations to help make their event successful. We pride ourselves on fresh food & good customer service.
I have used a lot of catering due to my job and, I must say that this experience with you guys was absolutely outstanding! Everything arrived well packed, hot items hot, cold items cold. The gentlemen laid everything out perfectly and the pick up was timely. You guys thought of everything from plates, napkins, to utensils.
Food was outstanding and received a lot of compliments. Meats were great and cookies were a hit! We will get more business from us for sure. Thanks for making it a wonderful event!

Your staff member was the best!! He came in, began setting up, I tried to help but he was very efficient and had it done in no time. He also took time to review everything with me. I was totally impressed with him. He even took time to bring leftover containers so that we could bring the left overs back to the department. This was the first time I have ever had containers offered. Our people love it so much that is now just an expectation that any meal we have here that it will be Penguin Ed’s. We discussed what time he should come back and was on time, he even brought more containers so that if the first set was not enough I would have more. The only thing I could ask for was empty gallon jugs to be able to keep the leftover drinks. We were wishing we had the drinks for when we got done with the team building exercise.
On a personal note, my husband was raised in Michigan but moved here from Florida, I have him hooked on Penguin Ed’s.
You have been amazing to work with in all of my 17 years here at UAPD. We will continue using Penguin Ed’s and I recommend you every time I am asked. Plus my family will continue dining at Penguin Ed’s.

I always appreciate when people follow up after catering for us. Everything was amazing. Timing, food quality, food quantity, pickup, etc. Everything was great. As I told Matt this morning, I will be sure to keep you on our short list for options later in the season. The only thing I would like to change is more to-go boxes. Most of our girls are grab and go eaters so having some of those was amazing. Next time if we can just make sure we have about 30-40 boxes then we should be golden.
Once again, thanks for great business and I look forward to working with you in the future.

The event turned out great! I do not remember his name, but the guy who delivered the food was the best ever, I really enjoyed having him help us out. The food was great as well. Thank you so much for all of your help.

Everything was perfect! Timing. Food. Set up. Pick up. Couldn’t have asked for more!!! Thank you all so very very much!
I grew up in Houston and had family here. Every time we came for a visit I would always make my parents take me to the “red phone” place to eat. Y’all catered my wedding and will always be part of our lives. Love my Penguin Eds ❤️
Everything was absolutely wonderful. The set up, the food, and the take down. The staff was prompt and everyone was very courteous. You always exceed our expectations!!
Thank you for making our night delicious.
It couldn’t have gone any better. Your people did an excellent job. We appreciate you. I’m sure we’ll see you again at Christmas.

Thank you so much for catering the event last night! The guests really enjoyed the food and we appreciate your willingness to help in our mission of serving families who struggle with hunger and poverty! We look forward to partnering together again.

The food was great and the kids thoroughly enjoyed it! They typically have to settle for a few cheap pizzas so they were VERY happy with the BBQ. Anyway just a quick thanks for all your help and to let you know not a crumb was wasted. There were a few faculty members at the meeting as well and they too appreciated and enjoyed the food. Your packaging was perfect and it’s obvious you’ve done this before! I’ll no doubt keep you in mind for any future occasions there.

The service was really good and so was the food. I had several people comment on how good it was and appropriate because the class was title “Back on the Hog Farm”
Thanks for everything. I love working with y’all.

Oh my goodness, thank you for the service! We had some leftovers today. The food was awesome and everyone loved it. I was very happy with the package you put together for us. It was very affordable and the portion was great. Thank you and Penguin Ed’s for helping my teachers enjoy a wonderful meal for Parent/Teacher conferences.

Everything was great; I’m pretty sure we still have some leftovers! The large cookies were a hit as well.
We love working with you all! Until next time. Have a great day!

Everything was AWESOME!!!!!!
Seriously, your team was so wonderful and attentive to everything we needed. I was never asked any questions (which is a good thing!) and everything went smoothly. My mom made it sound like they were all very on top of things. I’ll be honest, I don’t have a ton of feedback because I was not even bothered with anything! The food was delicious and we got so many compliments from friends and family on our great choice of food!!

Never did tell you THANKS for a great meal – we had probably 130 people show up and had very little left overs so that was great!
Everyone enjoyed the meat and gravy so I wanted to let you know it was awesome!
Thanks for your help and please tell the staff we enjoyed it!
Have a Very Merry Christmas!!

Our company booked Penguin Eds Catering to serve approximately 650 associates a meal on Sunday, November 6th. We received excellent service and the food was delicious. I would recommend them to anyone who enjoys great BBQ. The people were very easy to work with! Lisa, Bob, Gary and Mike took great care of us! Gary even joined in participating in Karaoke between groups and did an amazing job! We hope to have them back again next year!

The catering went great and the food was delicious. Your driver was also just as great! We actually talked a bit about his history with NTI. He shared with me his story of how he attended here and how going through one of our programs really facilitated his passion for the food industry and food service, which he now does. I enjoyed learning all of that.
Thank you so much again for all that you do and helping me with this catering event. Really appreciate it!

Penguin Ed’s did an excellent job of catering my wedding. They were quick to answer questions when I made my order, happy to amend it whenever I wanted and provided great and prompt service on the day of. The food was delicious, and my guests loved it!

I wanted to let you know everyone enjoyed the food soooo much Saturday. The delivery and pickup was exactly on time and the young man was so pleasant. There were many compliments on everything – from the coleslaw to all the meats. I’m so glad I picked y’all to prepare the food for our cousin reunion!

Thank you so much for getting everything to perfection for us. The reception was OUTSTANDING! One lady in front of me walking into the reception said, “I have already deemed this the best reception I have ever been to!” The smell of BBQ emanated through the facility, everyone was instantly hungry! The mac and cheese was so good too, glad we went with that.
The girls that were the wait staff were simply wonderful. I was so disappointed that I didn’t think ahead enough to have containers to at least give the leftover food to the church. It was SO good. The drinks were excellent too. Though I love wine, when I am in the South, I treat myself to the sweet tea.
Having Ed there was comforting. Please put me on the list of people that can be contacted if you need a reference.
Once again, thank you Lisa. You are a consummate professional and so wonderful to work with.
