The JPM Way

We believe our food, decor and catering service to be a standard of excellence, and we think you’ll agree.
It’s a standard rooted in a seasonal, artisanal approach that incorporates only the best ingredients, nature-based designs and first-class service.
Founder Chef Jennifer McCafferty is changing how the Main Line and Greater Philadelphia think about food and events by marrying elegance with sustainability.

JPM Catering is a full-service, off-premise boutique catering company with an emphasis on sustainability and customer service.

  • Local produce and cheese and antibiotic- and hormone-free meats

  • Seasonal and 100% housemade menus

  • 100% compostable disposables

  • Custom proposals that put customer first

We are inspired and motivated by all that lives around us: We like natural and hand-crafted things. We don’t like waste. We strive to intersect style, function and budget while respecting the earth and its creatures.

Jennifer McCafferty
Jennifer McCaffertyFounder / Chef
A natural-born chef with Main Line roots and an artist’s touch, Jennifer McCafferty is changing how Greater Philadelphia thinks about food and events. In the kitchen, McCafferty’s French-Mediterranean roots are accented with mellow Eastern undertones. Her designs are classic, sophisticated and smart. They engage guests as well as assure clients that their event will flow in a smooth, timely fashion.

McCafferty counts Julia Child, Ina Garten (the Barefoot Contessa) and Martha Stewart among her strongest influences. Combining Child’s classic techniques and confidence, Garten’s simple, bold flavors and natural ingredients and Stewart’s versatility and attention to detail, McCafferty creates seasonal menus with fresh, zesty flavors and remarkable presentation.

Without question, McCafferty’s strongest influence is the earth. Before JPM catered its first event, McCafferty outlined environmentally responsible practices–like using biodegradable service ware and packaging and local produce and composting–that have become pillars of JPM’s reputation, making the company one of the category leaders in Philadelphia catering.

A Muhlenberg College graduate, McCafferty lives in Ardmore with her husband Joe Petrucci, their son Joseph III and their daughter Rosemary.

“If you are looking for high quality food and outstanding service choose JPM.  Needless to say I was a bride who ate my entire meal…had been looking forward to it ever since the tasting.”
