Executive Chef/ Co-Owner
Andrew Yanak (Andy) started his career as an apprentice crafting his skill. Over the years, Andy has perfected his culinary artistry in both the private and business sectors. In 2004, Catering Experience was formed through a partnership with Jim Variglotti of The Cuyahoga Group, and Andy. Andy’s love for food and people have fueled his desires to make every catering event special. Andy will tell you, “ It’s no secret. Food can make or break an event. Menu, Taste, Presentation, Timing and Service all have to make sense, and it all has to be perfect.”
Catering Experience is an active participant and holds memberships in national and international culinary associations, including the International Caterer’s Association (ICA) and CATERSOURCE, and has represented Cleveland, Ohio on many joint ventures.
“Just a quick note to say Thanks So Very, Very Much for making our daughter’s wedding reception so absolutely wonderful! The food was spectacular and everything was perfect. We are so, so grateful.”
