One morning in 1994 Raymond Johnson looked to his right and saw a small shop with a funny name, Myles Teddywedgers. It was that day that Raymond just happened to be in the right place at the right time, he was given a job there and started that same morning he walked in.
The original owner Miles Allen came from Linden Wisconsin, which was once a mining region that drew miners, also called teddy boys, from Cornwall, England, where the pasty originated. Miles' father had a restaurant that served pasties as weekly specials, originally called tater wedges. When Miles opened his restaurant in Madison he borrowed a little bit from both phrases, and created the name Teddywedgers.
Since becoming the full owner, Raymond has continued to make sure the little shop lives up to the reputation it has gained over the years. He has fresh and delicious breakfast pies for sale by 7:00am - earlier on farmer's market Saturdays - followed each day by a variety of filling lunch pasties.
