What Are The Best Places In Philadelphia To Conduct Business?

Great Places In Philadelphia To Talk Business.

For many business professionals in the Philadelphia area, business meetings are taking place in more places than just your office or board room. Business is about trust and building relationships. We see it and hear it all the time from the business clients that use our executive car service in Philadelphia. They tell us the many challenges they have presenting a pitch here or presenting a pitch there and what environment best lends itself to creating comfort and trust. So many times we hear these concerns as we transport business executives to Philadelphia Airport, JFK Airport or Newark Airport.

We developed this blog post to help all sales and business executives (especially our ground transportation clients) add more great places to conduct business in the Philadelphia area. For this blog post, we will concentrate on restaurants. What are some of the best restaurants in the Philadelphia area to have a business meeting. Which restaurants have the elements that make a sales presentation or just a bonding experience produce more traction and trust. It can’t be to loud, it can’t be sleezy, there has to be a business minded staff that isn’t constantly interrupting the relationship building process.

As Esquire Magazine tells us “A business meal is not about the food“. It is more of a method to more strongly engage the client, even seduce the client by showing them how you like to treat valuable clients. Conducting business over a meal makes a statement that you mean more to me than just having an office meeting and shuffling you our of the building. So much of the business in Philadelphia takes advantage of these philosophies. Not only this but these Philadelphia restaurants almost act as a home field advantage.

Remember, we provide this information because our primary customers hire us to provide airport transportation to Philadelphia Airport, JFK Airport, Newark Airport or Atlantic City so they can meet their clients and deliver a sales pitch. We have 17 years of experience providing (and listening to) executives on business travel.

When entertaining a business prospect or client, it is important that the place is not to big, certainly not to loud ans most clients are not that interested in “trendy” type of places. Using a steak house as an example, they tend to be to loud and to crowded. Not the best place to have a relaxed business conversation. Capital Grille steak-house chain does provide a great atmosphere for a Philadelphia business meal. In many cases, hotel dining rooms make the best choices because they cater specifically to business guests and people staying in the rooms, so requests are cordially honored.
Something to be sure of is that tables should be well separated for a semblance of privacy; some restaurants, through OpenTable, now use a computer system that tells them everything about you, how often you come to the restaurant, where you sat, what preferences you expressed, what complaints you had, and what kinds of wine you drank.


The recently renovated Fountain at the Four Seasons Hotel in Philadelphia is all business at breakfast and lunch, and the staff is impeccably geared to that upscale segment, seeming to know every guest’s name and leaving people alone to talk. Lacroix is quiet and has a second-floor view of Rittenhouse Square, roomy banquettes, and decently priced fine food.

The point here is that if you can create a criteria or list of what are the best elements in a local Philadelphia restaurant that are conducive to a positive businesss meeting, the chances of having a more successful and productive sales meeting are in increased.

Great customer service- tracking my flight, noting it was going to land 40 minutes early…and making the adjustment so someone was there to meet me at the airport early! Also, receiving a confirmation email 24 hours prior was reassuring as well. Thank you!!
