Dutch Country Catering is a family-owned and operated, licensed and certified catering service run by Mervin King. He and his wife Betsy grew up on genuine Amish-style cooking and have many years of experience preparing traditional Amish meals using time-tested recipes passed down through the generations.
Dutch Country Catering operates a fully certified and licensed catering kitchen on wheels and also utilizes a home catering facility where customers can gather for a free tasting of sample menu items.
At Dutch Country Catering, we love sharing our old-fashioned Amish-style cooking with our friends and neighbors in the Lancaster County community and beyond. Over the years, we've formed relationships with many area bed & breakfast locations and also cook fresh barbecue chicken for the local Mud Sale at the Penryn Fire Co. each year. Our customers appreciate our attention to detail and on-time service, as well as the way we stay in touch throughout the process to make every event special.
Dutch Country Catering can handle weddings, banquets, company picnics or barbecues of just about any size, providing fresh, wholesome food and generous hospitality.
With minimal advanced notice, Dutch Country Catering & BBQ was contacted to serve a large group in Northern VA, to acknowledge site safety and the threat of complacency during the holiday season. Without hesitation, Dutch Country Catering serviced the trade men and women of The Poole and Kent Corporation seamlessly. Exceeding all parties expectations and provided a warm home touched meal to bring in the holiday season.
This was the furthest catering operation Dutch Country Catering & BBQ has executed from their Manheim, PA location, and did an incredible job!!
Thanks for such a great event Dutch Country Catering & BBQ!

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you again for providing the amazingly delicious food and excellent service for our wedding yesterday. From the fall of the bone tender beef ribs, to the homemade bread, to the refreshing lemonade and iced tea. I mention those because they were my top favorites, but all of it was delicious. Thank you so much for making our reception a big success. There wasn't a guest that didn't rave about the catering.

The Kings catered my wedding and they did a great job! The communication, pricing, and food was fantastic! People who attended my reception said it was some of the best reception food they ever had, even compared to fancy places. A guy from New York commented it was some of the best food! I was absolutely thrilled with them and can't say enough about it!
I am very happy I found Dutch Country Catering for our All American Furniture Expo. When I met with Merv, I had a whole list of requirements he would have to meet if he was going to be our caterer. I was looking for good Lancaster County food...something so good that buyers attending the show would choose to stay right there at the show to eat rather than leave the building to go to a nearby restaurant. I was also looking for something different than the standard expo food, not just sandwiches and soup.
I got everything I asked for and more! Not only was the food delicious and reasonably priced, his staff was very friendly and professional. I would recommend Dutch Country Catering to anyone.

Thank-you for the delicious meal you provided for us last night! That chicken was just fabulous! So moist and tender! Everything was so yummy! I never worry if the food will be good when you all cater. This was our 3rd time with you and we have never been disappointed. Your food and service is excellent!
We really appreciate Dutch Country Catering! They are so easy to work with, very reliable, and the staff is friendly and hard-working. They are very focused in what they do, and make it easy to relax and just enjoy an event knowing that everything will be taken care of. The food was delicious, with everything being freshly prepared and offering a wonderful variety. From fully prepared meals to sandwiches to snacks, we were pleased with everything. We highly recommend them for your event! You won't be disappointed!
