The Doughboy Restaurant Group is owned and founded by Rich Labriola.  As a child, he cultivated an appreciation of pizza and hospitality while helping at his father’s humble pizza shop in Chicago’s south suburbs.  He ascertained a passion for fresh baked Artisan breads and started his own bakery. Self-taught and homegrown, Rich would go on to sell his bread to some of the most sophisticated restaurants in Chicago. He constantly strove to learn more about baking and the hospitality industry.  With great risk and hope, Rich opened his own restaurants: Labriola Café in Oak Brook, Labriola Chicago on Michigan Avenue, and LaBarra Ristorante in Oak Brook. 

Rich also formed a partnership with Stan’s Donuts; which brought the concept successfully into the Chicago areas in 2014. Stan's Donuts currently serves the Chicago and Chicagoland areas in 17 different locations with more on the way. Stan's has additionally expanded into 13+ licensed stores across Illinois. Rich Labriola has made a commitment to growing Stan's Donuts to be rooted in quality and ample in quantity. Today, Stan's is known as a Chicago favorite and a must-have whether you are a visitor or local. 

The Doughboy Restaurant Group currently represents a collection of full-service restaurants and fast-casual restaurant concepts. With 600+ employees, the restaurants exhibit a robust and experienced corporate team pledged to be hospitality leaders. The company is currently growing at a rate of 2-3 locations per year. Additionally, the group operates multi commercial manufacturing facilities. Here they supply consistent, high quality bread/donuts to all current locations and wholesale production for prominent partnered food retailers.
