The DeDomenico family all enjoyed an old Armenian dish consisting of rice, vermicelli pasta, and chicken broth. The rice and pasta were sauteed in butter before the liquid was added, giving the dish its distinctive taste. In 1958, Vince DeDomenico decided to take this recipe and produce it for sale in grocery stores. He placed the rice and pasta in a box, and added a dry seasoning mix in place of the liquid chicken broth. Because this product was made up of half rice and half pasta, he decided to call it Rice-A-Roni. Chicken Rice-A-Roni was first introduced in the northwestern states in 1958. With it came the first Rice-A-Roni commercial, featuring San Francisco’s Cable Cars and the now famous jingle. Created in San Francisco, Rice-A-Roni would soon be known to all as 'The San Francisco Treat!'. The product was an immediate hit. Over the next couple of years, Rice-A-Roni spread across the United States and by 1962 was available for all of America to enjoy.
Today, Rice-A-Roni and Pasta Roni are both leading brands in the grocery store. We still make our classic flavors like Chicken and Beef Rice-A-Roni and Angel Hair Parmesan Cheese and Fettucine Alfredo Pasta Roni, along with new favorites inspired by more worldly cuisines.
