About Us

Chef Mark Kolasa paid his dues – although some say he’s too young to have paid! Chef Mark has worked in the restaurant business and every job therein since graduating from the Cooking & Hospitality Institute of Chicago. Chef Mark helped open several restaurants for others. He chose Michigan City, Indiana because there was no one here that offered the cuisine he would offer.

Finding the charming 1880’s house where Elite Catering is located in Michigan City assured Mark he had made the right decision. Located near Lighthouse Place Outlet Mall, in a part of Michigan City that sorely lacked quality gastronomical choices, Elite Catering is well positioned to serve a diverse clientele.

Elite Catering clients also know and appreciate Amanda Kosek. As Manager of Operations, she makes sure every event is a pure delight. She and Mark work well together and share the same commitment to quality — from the food, to the atmosphere, to the impeccable service each and every guest experiences.

Chef Mark, Amanda and the entire staff at Elite & Catering look forward to serving you! Let the premier Northern Indiana caterers make your wedding, reception or special event one to remember!
