In 1988 a group of business leaders, headed by Burt Flickinger, Jr. formed an unnamed group, at times referred to as the Roycroft not-for-profit, to take title and to market the historic Roycroft Inn to developers nationwide. On December 11, 1989 an organizational meeting of the Roycroft Revitalization Corporation met to adopt the by-laws, to elect officers and establish terms. Over $1.5 million was raised to restore much of the Inn’s exterior.
Late 1993, The Margaret L. Wendt Foundation of Buffalo took control of the Inn restoration and redevelopment project. They proposed to bring about the plans for a 22 suite, 4-Star Country Inn and Restaurant with an expected opening date in the summer of 1995. Over $8 million was spent on the restoration. The Roycroft Inn re-opened its doors on June 10, 1995.
At the January 2004 Annual Meeting the future directin of RRC was discussed with a resolution unanimously passed at the April 26, 2004 meeting to actively undertake the restoration of the Roycroft Campus. Ten new board member, bringing diverse skells, were elected to the board; the vision - "The Roycroft Campus: as if Elbert Hubbard and the Roycrofters never left", was adopted; and a name change to the Roycroft Capus Corporation (RCC) was chosen to better reflect the organizations' mission.
