The original location for La Bella Pizza was founded at the current Olsen location in May 2003. In 2016, Jim and Candy Dewitz took over the Olsen La Bella restaurant (no affiliation with other La Bella locations) and continuously updated and gained favor with locals and travelers alike. When the opportunity arose to add a dining area, bar, and drive-thru window in the space next door, Jim and Candy jumped at the chance to better serve the increasing number of guests. Along with the expansion, they have included beer and wine delivery as an option for customers.
In keeping with their reputation for growth and improvement, the Dewitzes are rebranding La Bella Pizza on Olsen as Big Jim’s Pizza Co. Watch for news about updates in the near future. Fear not! We will still offer the same delicious food and recipes our customers expect.
