Rudy J. Mazzetti came from humble beginnings, working from a young age to take care of his family and build a name for himself. In 1973 at the age of eighteen, Rudy founded Mazzetti's Bakery with his mother Julia. Together, they served delicious baked goods to their customers and supported the surrounding communities with regular donations and sponsorships.
Rudy believed that his hard work would eventually pay off and that being an honest businessman was of utmost importance. He believed quality was everything, making his baked goods affordable to anyone who paid the store a visit. Rudy treated his customers and the bakery staff as his family, stating repeatedly that every person's job is important and valued from the dishwasher to the head baker. Rudy and his wife Julie continued to grow the bakery business for decades into a San Francisco Bay Area institution. In April 2023, Rudy and the Mazzetti's Bakery family celebrated 50 years in business continuing the name Rudy made for himself.
Just a few months later, the Mazzetti Family announced the tragic loss of their father and the founder of Mazzetti's Bakery, Rudy Mazzetti. The family would like to have Rudy's hard work and legacy live on through helping students pursuing degrees in Culinary Arts. Rudy valued family more than anything and cared deeply for his wife, daughters, son-in-laws, and grandchildren. Rudy had a zest for life living every moment to its fullest. He helped others every chance he had and lived a life of service to others through his food.
