Our Story

Our History

Ohio grown

Normandy Catering is a leading Ohio caterer and food service provider. 

Our journey began over 40 years ago. Founder, Linda Carmigiano grew up on a farm in Chardon, Ohio. Her parents owned local restaurants in the 1940s and ‘50s, making food preparation a true family legacy. In the late 1960s, Linda and her husband, Sandy Carmigiano, decided to turn their gourmet passions into a catering business. Their first big event was a wedding in 1968 for 250 people. The success of the event led to the start of Normandy Catering and Party Center.

From farm to tables

Over the next 15 years, Linda and Sandy built our team and spent many long days and nights uncovering the magic of delivering delicious, quality food at scale. In 1984, we diversified beyond the banquet facility, using our skills to focus on off-site catering for rehabilitation centers, summer camps, day care centers and public and private schools. Off-site catering became a major part of the business and secured our place in the Northeast Ohio catering culture.

Today, Normandy Catering is proud to create food experiences for Ohio’s best events, businesses and institutions.
