Ryan Gray has over 18 years in the pizza business, One of those stints was working for Bruce when the first Brucci’s location (Ponte Vedra) opened. After a few years, he convinced his father Buddy to partner up and open the West Beaches, Brucci’s 3rd location. They have been happy co-owners since 2007. Ryan and Buddy agree, if you are at their location try the Italian Pizza (it has a little bit of everything on it). The goal for their Bruccci’s location is for it to be the “Cheers” of the neighborhood… where everybody knows your name, drink, and where you like to sit”.
There is a great deal of focus on community in the Bruccis family. None more prevalent that the West Beaches location. Just about every Tuesday, they have some kind of fundraising or charitable event involving churches, schools, and other local outreaches.
– “I knew from day one that Ryan and Buddy needed to be a part of Brucci’s future. They are more than franchisees; they are family and partners in all that we have become. “
