“We’ll put sunshine in your smile and spring in your heart!” – Betty von Rutenberg


The start of von Rutenberg Ventures goes back to 1961 when Bill and Betty von Rutenberg struck out on their own and purchased the Nibble Nook.  This tiny eight stool hamburger spot (on East Washington Avenue just off the square) soon became a hot spot for great burgers, fries and shakes.  Many customers today still mention how they loved those Nibble Nook burgers.
