Coa catered an Amazon event in Philadelphia recently. They are very professional and easy to work with. Ted went out of his way to make sure our event went smoothly, he had all the food out on time, and guests enjoyed the prepared menu. I absolutely recommend for future events! More...

Not your average caterer! Coa’s menu and flavors are so unique, and every dish was artfully presented. Some of my guests had dietary restrictions, and there were so many fabulous gluten free and vegan options to choose from. Even my gluten-loving, meat-eating guests loved them! The food is sure to impress. More...

I've hired Chef Torres and Coa Catering on various occasions, and have always been pleasantly impressed with the quality and creativeness of his craft. He's particularly talented when it comes to accommodating various food restrictions. He perfectly catered a dinner party that included vegetarians, vegans, and gluten free individuals. A true Gem!

Coa Catering provided amazing hors d'oeuvres for one of my events. The food was creative, visually stunning, and full of flavor. My guests had some dietary restrictions which Chef Ted had no problem accommodating. The vegan appetizers were delicious and my guests were thrilled. At one point, a guest asked if a certain option was vegan, and when it turned out it wasn't the chef went above and beyond to whip up a vegan version on the spot! The staff was friendly, professional, and accommodating. Given the creativity and flavor of the dishes and the amazing service - I would used them again in heartbeat for any event!! HIGHLY recommend!

I can't say enough of how amazing chef Ted and his staff are at Coa Catering. They helped me with my graduation party and everything was absolutely amazing. The food was great and everyone loved it, but the main highlight was how nice the whole staff were. Ted is just great and makes sure you are satisfied and happy with everything. He also went out of his way and helped me with the sound system and many more things. Unfortunately I am moving from Philly soon, otherwise I would have used their service for every single party I was throwing. More...

My wife and I spent many hours researching and reviewing proposals from different caterers, and we are so happy that we ended up choosing COA Catering for our wedding! COA's pricing was very transparent and reasonable in comparison to some of the bigger name caterers we worked with early on in the process, and in hindsight my wife and I feel as though it was the best option we could have chosen given how amazing our wedding was, and how supportive and positive Ted was throughout the planning process. Ted Torres, the chef and owner, was an amazing resource in helping us envision how our wedding would play out, and went above and beyond with his team to ensure that the experience was perfect for us and our guests. In the communication leading up to the event, Ted would always make time to answer our questions, speak or meet with us in person, and after each conversation made us feel great about our decision to use COA given his thoughtfulness and expertise. On the day of our wedding, the staff was very professional and kind, and took great care of us and our guests. We chose a venue that had never hosted a wedding before, so Ted and his team played an integral part in executing our unique vision. There were never any lines at the bars, the hors d'oeurves were a HUGE hit, and the whole evening felt very classy. The set up and clean up was seamless as COA paid attention to all of the little details. The bartenders executed our signature drinks with great care and expertise as well. The most important aspect was that my wife and I did not need to worry at all on the day of the event as things were going great, the service was excellent, and everyone was happy! We both HIGHLY recommend choosing COA catering! More...

I can't say enough great things about Chef Ted and his staff at Coa Catering. We have used his services numerous times for all kinds of events (large corporate receptions, small lunch meetings, large buffet dinners at a gala, etc.) and the food has been consistently amazing. His specialty is a take on traditional Latin favorites that look and taste updated and refined. Ted and his staff are flexible, easy to work with and ultimate professionals. My personal favorites are his modern tostones and tiny empanadas! As an event chair, I have had nothing but positive experiences with Ted and his staff and highly recommend their work. If you are looking for a catering company that can execute any size job flawlessly, please check out Coa Catering. More...

Q&A

My favorite dish to make are empanadas. I specialize in Latin American style cuisine, using traditional Latin/Caribbean ingredients with a modern twist.

Listening! After reviewing your basic information, we like to suggest a short phone call in order to get a better understanding of what our clients are looking for. Taking into consideration the flow of the event, as well as dietary restrictions are important in creating the perfect menu.

The satisfaction of making our clients happy through doing what we love most. We are honored to help create memorable moments for your special events.

During my experience working as a Chef in the corporate and restaurant environment, I felt limited in the degree to which I could accommodate my clients. Owning my own catering business has allowed me to feel limitless in the possibilities that I offer my clients in bringing their vision to life.

As a client of Coa Catering, your event is our utmost priority. Being a small, agile catering group allows us to focus on quality over quantity. We pride ourselves on personalization and creativity through every aspect of the services we provide, from menu planning and execution to customer relations.
