About Us

Cleveland PhotographerExecutive Chef – Andrew Yanak

Andy started his career as an apprenticeship crafting his skill. Over the years Andy has worked with food in the private and business sectors. In 2004, Catering Experience was formed through a partnership with Jim Variglotti of The Cuyahoga Group, and Andrew Yanak.   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 actively involved nationally with the International Cater’s Association (ICA) and CATERSOURCE and has represented Cleveland on many joint ventures.
