Started in 2009 in a small, home-like setting, Dawn and Nino Scaffidi had the dream of "Bringing Grandma's House on Sunday" to the people of the Ohio Valley through their Scaffidi's Pasta Restaurant. Quickly becoming evident that they had outgrown their original setting, the Scaffidi Family relocated their business, expanding it over ten times overnight and renaming it Scaffidi's Restaurant and Tavern. From there, history was made and the Scaffidi Restaurant Group was born and expanded into what it is today. 

Since then, the Scaffidi Restaurant Group has expanded into a multi-faceted, multi-brand Foodservice Corporation, operating brands in the Full-Service Restaurant, Catering, Quick-Service Restaurant, Virtual Brands, Direct to Consumer Retail Goods, and Distribution categories. 

Lead by an executive team made up of the Scaffidi Family, the Scaffidi Restaurant Group is a family-owned company that strives each day to "Bring The Taste of Nonna's (Grandma's) House on Sunday" to all of the customers that it serves, no matter the brand in which they partake in.
