Hell’s Kitchen Pizza Ruffano’s
Nelson’s vision for Ruffrano’s Hell’s Kitchen Pizza began during a trip to New York City. He came across a little pizza joint called Hell’s Kitchen Pizza that claimed to offer the best New York Pizza. Nelson was inspired by the quality and taste of the pizza and decided to bring New York Pizza to Colorado. Nelson was afforded the opportunity to meet the man behind the original Hell’s Kitchen Pizza. They spoke of how he would like to open a Hell’s Kitchen Pizza in Colorado. The owner was inspired by Nelson’s drive and promised him the secrets to Hell’s Kitchen Pizza. When Nelson returned to Colorado, he immediately began to look for a location to establish a New York Pizza restaurant. He was able to purchase a location in Manitou Springs, Colorado at 9 Ruxton Avenue. Nelson contacted the owner of Hell’s Kitchen Pizza in New York to inform him of the good news. The owner, impressed with Nelson’s drive and follow through, gave him all of his secrets for the best New York Pizza. That is how the legacy of Ruffrano’s Hell’s Kitchen Pizza Manitou Springs began.
