The Founder

Teddy C. Levitt

President & Founder

Beth R. Levitt

Treasurer & Secretary

Ted has grown up working in the family businesses, The Scotlaur Inn and Chick and Ruth’s Delly . He was only away for a few short years while attending college. One of Teddy’s many fine accomplishments was graduating from the Culinary Institute of America and Florida International University.

Ted operated the Scotlaur Inn, Chick and Ruth’s Delly, and Uncle Teddys Pretzels for over 40 years. Marred to Beth & they have two children, Scott and Lauren, Beth maintaining the household and Oh, and did we forget to mention taking care of the biggest kid of them all, Ted, that in itself is a full time job!

Ted had an undying love for the Scotlaur Inn, Chick and Ruth’s Delly, and Uncle Teddys Hand-Rolled Soft Pretzels. He spent up to 10 to 15 hours a day, 6 to 7 days a week in the family business. Everyday you’d find Ted all over the place performing tasks like greeting every guest, taking orders from customers, working the grill, helping the guests check in and out, running the register, doing handyman repairs, and performing magic for all of the customers & telling jokes to both kids and adults. Ted, in his little spare time, loves to rebuild Antique cars, scratch build HO-trains, remote control planes & music boxes.

The Levitt family has owned and operated the restaurant and Inn longer then any other in the Annapolis Historic District.

Ted started Faces of Valor USA, which is a nonprofit organization raising money to provide scholarships and financial assistance to those injured, or to children of those killed in the performance of their duty.

Ted retired in 2018 and now enjoys restoring his antique cars full time & spending lots of time with his new grandson Ayden, (Lauren & Meaghan’s Son)
