About Novotny Catering

Novotny Catering was founded in 1956 as a small food service business specializing in off-premise catering.  W.J. Novotny began Novotny Catering as a part-time business, but within several years it grew to the point where catering became his full-time occupation.  Over the past 45 years, Novotny Catering has been recognized as a premier caterer in Lorain County and western Cuyahoga County.

In 1993, the operations moved into a 6000 square foot building located at 143 Lear Road, which is fully licensed and inspected.

Today, Novotny Catering, Inc. remains a family - run Corporation.  Their business is off-premises catering.  This service is provided for a variety of parties and social functions, ranging from weddings to funerals, inaugural balls to bowling banquets, picnics to New Year's Eve parties, and so on.

We require a deposit at the time of booking to secure your date.  The final balance is due in advance or the day of your party.  We accept payment by check or cash, as well as Master Card and Visa.  All deposits will be applied toward your final balance.  Should you cancel the function, your deposit will be applied toward a future function.


"We were so pleased to have you in our home, making this the most pleasant way we have ever entertained. We have received so many compliments on the food - a far cry from the usual holiday banquet fare.  Thank you so much for making our office party an evening for all to remember warmly"

Our menus offer some of the more popular items.  Should you prefer, we will design a menu to fit your needs.  Our Event Director and Chef will be more than happy to assist you with this. It is necessary that your menu selection be chosen (3) weeks prior to the event in order to meet your requests.


In order to be properly prepared for the function, it is essential that we be informed as to your guaranteed number of guests seven (7) days prior to your event.  After this date it is possible to increase your guarantee but not decrease it.
