imagesRodilla is a restaurant chain in Madrid (Spain) specializing in sandwiches.


About 1939 or 1940 Antonio Rodilla opened a confectionery shop in Callao, the very heart of the city.  After some years he decided to sell a new line of products, cold meat (fiambre) sandwiches. Since it was difficult at the time to find a good bread supplier he decided to make his own bread as well, called “English bread”, or pan de molde(as opposed to the more traditional baguette-like bread).

In the early 70’s Rodilla opened two new establishments in Princesa and Orense streets, and in 1992 a new firm was created (“Artesanía de la Alimentación”) to centralize the production of their own raw materials.


Between 1993 and 1995 five new establishments were opened, and today it has a total of 72 restaurants; 63 in Madrid, 5 inValencia, 2 in Barcelona, 2 in Sevilla, 1 in Toledo and 1 in Segovia.
