It’s been seven years since Rudy’s stole our hearts for the first time. Four since they expanded to Peter Street. And three since they took their beloved Neapolitan pizza nationwide. And now, they’re set to dominate the south of Manchester and surrounding areas with a new pizzeria.
The business recently submitted a licensing application for the same address that the Mad Giant Food Hall resided at on Wilmslow Road, suggesting another Manchester venue for the popular pizzeria could be on the cards. Rudy’s submitted a licensing application permitting the sale of alcohol and the provision of late night refreshments at the venue to Manchester City Council, and if approved the Didsbury venue could be open from 11am until midnight daily.
Confirming the newest branch on its website, Rudy’s stated: “We opened our first pizzeria in Ancoats, Manchester in 2015. Since then we have spent years perfecting our techniques to create a perfect, light, classic Neapolitan pizza. Rudy’s Didsbury will be the 13th member of the Rudy’s famiglia. Our new pizzeria will cater for over 90 guests inside.”
Set to arrive this October, the Didsbury restaurant would be Rudy’s fifth Manchester location following pizzerias in Ancoats, the city centre, Sale and most recently Chorlton. And since Mancs can’t get enough of Rudy’s, the pizzeria also recently lodged a licensing application for the old Dawson’s music shop on Portland Street – which could become Rudy’s third location in the city centre.
The pizzeria is owned by Mission Mars – the company behind other successful restaurants in Manchester such as Trof and Albert’s Schloss. Martyn Williams, General Manager of Rudy’s Didsbury, said: “We look forward to becoming part of the community in Didsbury. We will open our doors this Autumn and the team cannot wait to serve our authentic Neapolitan pizza in this lovely neighbourhood.”
