Tudor's Biscuit World is a restaurant chain based in Nitro, West Virginia, most commonly found in West Virginia. Many West Virginia locations share a building with Gino's Pizza and Spaghetti, although the chain is more extensive than Gino's (which is exclusive to West Virginia), having locations in southern Ohio, eastern Kentucky, and southwestern Virginia. In 2016 a franchise was opened in Panama City, Florida. Tudor's serves biscuits, biscuit sandwiches, homestyle breakfasts and dinners, muffins, and several side dishes. The chain was originally based in Charleston, West Virginia and many of the biscuit sandwiches are named for sports teams of interest in that area, including teams at Marshall University, West Virginia University, and The University of Charleston.
Tudors Biscuit World was the original idea/concept of Bill and Mae Tudor and their son John Tudor. Bill and Mae opened the very first Tudors on Washington Street in Charleston WV in 1980 There son John joined them two months later after graduating from ECU. They opened more stores in the Charleston and Huntington areas, and began selling franchises. In 1986, Bill Tudor passed away and John and his mother continued to grow the business with the addition of Oshel Craigo as their new franchise partner. Today, John Tudor and Oshel Craigo own equal shares in this flourishing restaurant business.
