J. Scott Catering has an exciting celebration ahead—the full-service, Philadelphia-based caterer is turning 20 years old!

J. Scott Walsh, founder and president of the company, and a culinary arts graduate of Paul Smith’s College, started his catering career in his parent’s home. Then, in 1996, he opened a brick-and-mortar facility in the Malvern Shopping Center; in 2004, he moved the company to its current, 10,000-square foot location.

In addition to this exciting milestone, the company has revealed a new brand and website, which features simple, easy to-use-navigation, a number of photos for event inspiration and a venue finder, which helps customers select facilities based on criteria such as size and location.

But the company still keeps its eye on the prize—its most important goal is serving top-notch culinary delights.

 “Catering is our bread and butterour culinary staff is so talented at creating foods that hosts and guests love. It is the very main service we provide for our clients and continues to be our focus,” says Walsh. “We develop your one-of-a-kind menu, preparing it in our state-of-the-art kitchen and transporting it safely in our refrigerated trucks for cooking and further preparation on site.”

SCS Global Services (SCS), a third-party environmental and sustainability certification, auditing, testing, and standards development, has launched its Zero Waste Standard, “Zero Waste for Events.”

As Homegrown As It Gets


The duo behind the Twin Cities’ cult-favorite Revival, Thomas Boemer and Nick Rancone, reopened Revival Smoked Meats as a full-service restaurant at a new location in southwest Minneapolis on May 14. The restaurant formerly had counter service at St. Paul’s Keg and Case Market, but that outlet closed in 2021. The new restaurant is in the space previously occupied by Corner Table, also owned by Revival.
