Tudor's Biscuit World was the original idea and 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. Their 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 died and John and his mother continued to grow the business with the addition of Oshel Craigo as their new franchise partner.
