Whatever you want…whenever you want it.

Each day, Rutter’s bakes, blends, stir-fries and serves up fresh, local flavor.

From breakfast bowls to burgers, and seafood to soups and salads, Rutter’s brings a selection of the highest quality food options to its 72 locations across Pennsylvania and West Virginia. With its company roots in York County, Pennsylvania, Rutter’s partners with food and beverage producers to bring local products from Pennsylvania farms and fields to its kitchens.

Rutter’s has consistently been recognized within its industry as a leader in food service, innovative technology and customer service. With a heritage that dates back to 1747, Rutter’s 271-year history makes it the oldest vertically integrated food company in the United States. This year marks its 50th year of convenience.

Born and raised in York County, Rutter’s Director of Food Service Ryan Krebs believes that this recognition has much to do with Rutter’s restaurant mindedness and a commitment to quality and innovation.

“Food is an experience…we want to know where it comes from. We photograph it; we share it with our friends. The experience is just as important as the food itself,” he says. “People and their relationship with food is so embedded in our culture. We have many familiar faces who come into our stores. Our managers know our customers by name. When you’re a part of people’s daily routine, you have to execute at a high level.”

That execution can be found among the 13 certified chefs on staff, the more than 55 local food providers that work with Rutter’s and the focus on local, sustainable food and beverage products.

As an 11th-generation family-owned business, Rutter’s takes pride in supporting its local communities. By eating fresh and local, you help to support the livelihoods of farms and businesses committed to bringing you the freshness you can taste at Rutter’s.
