PenniBlack Client Feedback

Comments from our happy customers

We count some of the world’s most discerning companies among our satisfied clients, such as Disney, Graham Norton, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Deloitte, Vidal Sassoon, Nike id, Maxmara and Mercedes to name just a few. We can provide countless testimonials confirming our previous successes, recent examples include: ‘completely brilliant’, ‘outstanding service’, ‘exceptional standard’ and ‘presentation superb’. PenniBlack was contracted by Sportsworld to provide bespoke corporate lunch boxes for VIP Olympic sponsors, such as BMW and Samsung, during the 2012 Games. Delivering gourmet bundles across the capital from dawn to dusk, was a fantastically fun challenge and gave Bolt a run for his money. Declared ‘the best boxed lunches’ they had ever seen, we delivered to thousands of people, throughout the day, over two weeks, in venues across the capital. Gosh, we were busy…

‘Well, the party was a great success. Hana does an excellent service in charge of her staff and the two young men also worked hard. Hannah has a sense of the overall picture of how things are going and is right in there to do whatever is needed. I would highly recommend the service that Penni Black offers. The food was absolutely delicious and extremely well presented. I hope I don’t sound too gushing but I am just so happy with the service I received that I want to share my experience with you. I will recommend you every chance I get and will certainly use your services again.’

Corporate Summer Party @ Company office – Canapé and drinks – 95 guests
‘Last night was a huge success and you did a great job looking after us all – the wine flowed, as did the beer and the food was delicious. Many of our guests were extremely complimentary about the nibbles in particular, and I certainly thought they were excellent. I hope that some of your company cards were scooped up as people left! Please do pass on my thanks to the manager (Hana) for looking after everything so efficiently, and to the team who were all very pleasant and looked after everyone so well. Also, please let the chefs know how good we all thought the food was! We may have over-ordered on the food in relation to the numbers (we had over 50 no-shows), but it was all eaten and very much enjoyed. Many thanks again to all involved, and to you for your organisation.’

Harrow Speech Day – Buffet and drinks – 50 guests
‘We had a wonderful day on Saturday thanks to your hard work and efforts, the day went according to plan. Your staff were extremely professional. The chef was very relaxed and happy to work outside (the marquee company didn’t isolate the catering tent) so he prepared the food behind the marquee which worked well as the weather was good. The Pimms went down a treat and the food was delicious and well presented. The staff were exceptional and everyone commented on them and their attentiveness. We will definitely recommend you for future Speech Days!!! Thanks again
