OUR STORY


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.”
~Kate & Kevin Beirne

Professional Staff

Our skilled catering team can take an ordinary event and make it extraordinary. It can also bring delicious boxed lunches to your staff meeting, if that’s what you need.

As caterers, we’re committed to making events memorable
and special. We plan, create and serve everything from continental breakfasts and luncheon buffets, to vibrant-themed evening, dinners and galas. We consider the initial concept, menu, tables, linens and scenery, so your event accomplishes exactly what you want – and we’ll work with you to do it all within your budget.

We specialize in a variety of celebrations, occasions and themes. Our team can transform a plain party room into an elegant reception hall. We can also help you express appreciation to your employees through the ultimate company picnic.
