Rudino’s opened the first location in 1995 in Cary, North Carolina by father and son, Terry and Brian Rudd. Their dream was to create a new concept for the Triangle area that started with scratch made dough that is baked daily on site, fresh toppings and focused on a deep appreciation for customer expectations. The Rudino’s concept was quickly accepted and appreciated in the Triangle as word begun to spread!
The Grinders and Pizza received rave reviews and gained local popularity. Rudino’s received national attention after a feature article in the pizza industry publication Pizza Today?. As you can imagine request for expansion in the Triangle and licensing interest from national locations were being sought.
Rudino’s now has 11 restaurant locations through out the Triangle, additional cities in North Carolina and in MI, TX, FL, TN and VA with more expansion planned in the near future.
The family business now includes Terry, his three sons Brian, Mark, Tom and his nephew Gary Rudd.
