1964

Polonia Catering’s proud family tradition dates back to 1964, when Chuck and Marge Machay purchased Polonia Ballroom, Grove & Lounge from the former owner.

1965-1979

Located on Archer Ave. in Chicago, Polonia Grove (as it was known at that time) was the premier destination for Polka bands throughout Chicago until 1978. The Polonia name is synonymous with polka music in Chicago, as well as outstanding food and service.

In 1979, the Machays decided to close the Grove and completed a major renovation of the hall. At that time the name was shortened to Polonia Banquets, as it is today.

1994

In 1994, the family decided to expand their operations with a second location in Tinley Park, Illinois.

2004

After serving the south suburbs for 10 years, the Machay family decided to close the Tinley location and opened a catering business. Marge’s children Brian and Sue opened Polonia Catering & Market in Mokena in 2004.

2010

In 2010, Polonia Catering expanded its offerings to include the Nitro Dessert Station, Chicago’s First Mobile Liquid Nitrogen Dessert Station.

2013

Seeing the opportunity to further expand the business, in 2013 Polonia Catering began offering a larger variety of party rentals.

2017

Today, Polonia Catering’s business foundation continues to be based on family values and traditions. Polonia Catering prides itself on unparallelled customer service, quality and attention to detail. Polonia Banquets is still going strong, and is run by Marge’s daughters Sandy and Sue.
