RWDT Foods, Inc. was started by two lifelong friends, Ronald Wooten and Donnell Thompson. The two met in high school at the NC Shrine Bowl in 1976. They both went on to graduate from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where they were part of the 1977 and 1980 ACC Championship teams. Wooten was drafted into the National Football League by the New England Patriots and Thompson by the then Baltimore, later Indianapolis, Colts.
