Dudley Dough in Roxbury Is Closing

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like a pizza shop affiliated with a nonprofit restaurant and organization is shutting down.

According to a post from Universal Hub, Dudley Dough in Roxbury is closing by the end of the year, with a note from Haley House (which is behind it) saying that because sales have not met expectations, the organization will not be able to continue subsidizing the Washington Street shop because it could end up jeopardizing the future of Haley House itself.

Dudley Dough, which first opened two years ago, is connected to the South End-based Haley House as well as Haley House Bakery Cafe on Dade Street near Dudley Dough. The organization has been helping the homeless, the working poor, and others who face struggles since the mid 1960s.

The address for Dudley Dough is 2302 Washington Street, Roxbury, MA, 02119. The website for Haley House can be found at

[December 20 update: A message sent from Haley House indicates that Dudley Dough is now closed.]
