Chuck Schuster

Operations Director

Chuck Schuster has been with the Historic Onesto organization since the beginning of its renovation to its grand re-opening in 2014.

Chuck knows every elegant corner of the Onesto and loves to make sure each couple, their families and their guests experience the splendor of our one-of-a-kind event space.

Under his management, the Historic Onesto guarantees customer satisfaction.

Chuck works closely with clients from the first planning till the event is complete. His goal is to help make every event a dream come true. One of the best parts of his job is giving tours to people who are seeing the Onesto for the first time.

“From start to finish – through the entire event – our guests just fall in love with the Onesto’s rich history and tradition,” Chuck says. “I love working with them through to the very end, seeing their event come to life even better than they imagined!”

“I am a big believer in consistency, commitment, and the work that I do,” says Chuck. He compares the renovation of the Onesto to the rebirth of the surrounding neighborhood. “Seeing the transition from start to finish and the rejuvenation of downtown Canton is my passion.”

In his personal time, Chuck loves to travel, bike ride through the scenic Cuyahoga Valley, take motorcycle trips and spend time with his two grandchildren.

Fun Fact: Chuck can actually officiate weddings, too. So if you plan to have your wedding at the Onesto itself (or at our partner property across the street, the Old Stone Chapel), and are looking for a someone to lead you through the vows – talk to Chuck!
