Our history

History Image

In a quaint diner in Mt. Lookout Square, on Memorial Day in 1978, a dream was born. Front of the House Manager from Stouffer’s Hotel had met and married Back of the House Kitchen Manager and Registered Dietician, also from Stouffer’s, and they opened their restaurant and catering business. The business was an instant success. Only one hiccup in the business plan was that Nancy Ward, Chef, Kitchen Manager and Dishwasher went into labor with her third child that first day. Tom Ward, Host, Restaurant Manager, Waiter and Busboy had to call in family to feed the customers while they rushed to the hospital. That was the day Village Pantry Catering, a family owned and operated business, was born.

For over 34 years, Village Pantry Catering has provided simple but elegantly prepared meals to parties ranging from 12 to 1200. Renowned for its professional and courteous staff, exquisite taste and presentation of food, Village Pantry is the local standard in Greater Cincinnati. Village Pantry offers a wide range of catering services to some of the city’s most coveted venues, as well as some hidden gems. As the exclusive caterer to the Sharonville Convention Center for over 18 years, and among the exclusive caterers to Cincinnati Park Properties, Music Hall, Masonic Temple, Glendale Lyceum and many others, they have created thousands of unforgettable meals and unique events.
