Our Family


La Chatelaine French Bakery and Bistro is a Family Owned Business located in Columbus, Ohio since 1991. There are now three locations and each are run by a family member.

Stan and Gigi Wielezynski immigrated to the United States in 1985, and keeping the family together was just as important then as it is now.

Tad Wielezynski is the head Chef and production manager. His daughter Claudia is very talented and shows a great interest in helping out around the restaurant, as well as in cooking.

Valerian Wielezynski, General Manager. Val has two children, the oldest Enzo, is now fluent in the ways of bussing tables and polishing the pastry case.Elle is just as gorgeous and charming as her mother Paige and Grandma Gigi.

Next is Marie-Charlotte, General Manager, who graduated with a bachelors of science from the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in 2005. Charlotte and her husband Aaron have a son, Leopold and they have just blessed the family again with a new addition, Josephine.

The youngest sibling Janek. His interests are cooking and production management much like his oldest brother, Tad.


We look forward to seeing you!
