our history

1976

What is now Rudi’s Rocky Mountain Bakery began in 1976 as Rudi’s Bakery, a small local bakery opened by Sheldon Romer in Boulder, Colo. Romer named the bakery after Swami Rudrananda, a spiritual leader of an ashram in New York who was instrumental in bringing Eastern culture and spiritual traditions to many Americans. Rudi’s Bakery soon gained a reputation for nutritious, flavorful, preservative-free breads, rolls and buns.

1981

In 1981, after a rigorous review process, Rudi’s entire product line became certified Kosher, and Rudi’s products began to appear on supermarket and natural food store shelves. The increased demand for Rudi’s offerings meant several moves to larger baking facilities. Rudi’s now occupies a state-of-the-art bakery in the heart of Boulder where its breads continue to be made in small batches using a special blend of centuries-old, craft baking techniques and modern baking methods
