52 Years of Chick & Ruth’s Delly, Ted Levitt Talks About the Changing of the Guard (E-59)

It’s the end of an era. Ted Levitt sold the iconic Chick & Ruth’s Delly last week after being in the family for 52 years. There are few mentions about Maryland without discussing Chick & Ruth’s, from their service to their colossal milkshake.

We sat down with Ted in his living room to talk about the history, the future and what lies in store for him as the “guardianship” of this Maryland institution is placed in the care of someone else.
