About Rudolph's

Old Photo of Young Man Making Pork Rinds

Our commitment to excellence has been passed from generation to generation. In 1955, John Rudolph learned of an untapped market for pork rinds and the Ohio entrepreneur quickly launched his own company producing pork rinds from smoked bacon rinds.

And we've remained the family's namesake brand of pork rinds for nearly 70 years!

For Us, Pork Rinds are a Family Affair.

Mary's Secret ... Recipe 

Golden Pork Rind

By 1957, the meat industry no longer smoked the rind on the bacon. Under pressure to save their fledgling business, John's wife, Mary, put her home economics background to work and invented a revolutionary two-step pork rind process the company still uses today.
