Simply Fresh, Simply Fine


Catering by Design is a Cary, NC-based wedding and event catering company that’s been serving couples and clients throughout the Triangle for more than two decades. In fact, the business was founded in 2000 by a Cary restaurant owner. Today, owner Phillip Lin and his employees strive to put couples’ desires first on their big day.

The catering team has earned a great reputation for gorgeous and tasty food preparation. Moreover, the team distinguishes itself from other area caterers due to consistent service. In fact, many team members have been with the company for more than 10 years. This is why couples give them rave reviews, and venues love hosting them at their event spaces!

Signature Dishes from Catering by Design

Above all, locals know this Cary-based caterer for fresh, delicious and straightforward food. Catering by Design offers menus that include traditional Southern faves like shrimp and grits, pulled pork, Memphis “crazy” chicken, fried green tomatoes and deviled eggs. Signature dishes include chicken marsala and their penne pasta with portobello mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes and pesto cream sauce.

A Word from The Catering by Design Team

After spending so many years in the business, the team has learned a thing or two about North Carolina weddings and serving hungry guests.

“What one person loves, another can’t stand,” says chef James Murdock and catering director Kelli Albro. That’s why they love to bust out all of the options! The pair add that they are looking forward to self-serve buffets, action stations and grazing tables to make a comeback post-pandemic.
