OH' PHOEBE'S BBQ and Caterers
is a family name that means to me the love , strength and goodness that comes from my mother, Phoebe Showell Dent. She was a mother of six. Through her strength I gained the maturity necessary to help out in the kitchen. From this experience, I was able to start working in a produce and fish market at the age of 16. The thrill and the power of providing so many people with good food was amazing and the interactions was a perfect start for me. This directed me into my current career.
My first real job began at the William Penn Inn in Springhouse, PA. My boss, George Statler, was a very influential person in helping me bring out my natural talent for cooking. Here was where I honed my raw skills. Learning to prepare various dishes became easy.
Next, I began working for Newport Foods with Kevin Heenan and his wife, Bonnie. From them I truly learned what customer service was all about. We catered everything from large corporate functions to intricate gourmet dinners. Here I learned how to be creative and to take pride in my accomplishments.
Seven years ago, I started my own road-side BBQ business and catering company, "Oh Phoebe's® BBQ and Caterers".
This was no easy task. But with the support of my wife , family and friends, my dream has come true. And now I am embarking on my second business venture, "Oh Phoebe's® Down Home Deli"
