Welcome to the Gold N' Dough Hospitality Group - a collection of family-owned businesses home grown over the last 30 years. We have provided our garden state patrons with exceptional dining experiences – through our commitment to serving delicious food, hard-work and truly caring about our people, our customers and their communities. We believe that this commitment is keeping our customers coming back, time and time again!
It all began with Dean Buttafuoco, and his strong family values of hard work, perseverance and a relentless entrepreneurial spirit. Dean’s career as a restaurateur began at 17, when he was hired as a short-order cook for Big Al’s Shore Restaurant. By watching and observing, Dean learned the value of an exceptional dining experience, unparalleled customer service and set out to create a business that put those ideas to work. In 1987, Dean formed the Gold N' Dough Hospitality Group. One by one, Dean led the way renovating restaurants throughout New Jersey – each a little different, but sharing the same basic principles of impeccable standards in food quality, service and an endless commitment to customers.
“Unlike many of the big restaurants and chains, we are directly involved in the neighborhoods we serve and feel it is our civic duty to give back in every way we can. We know and care about our people, our customers and the neighborhoods that they live in. We have built our restaurants with the hope that they will become local, favorite gathering spots.”
