owner of Bob’s Pizza on east

and Steve Korneli to lease the business with a sale pending. Bob’s Pizza was
founded in 1969 by Robert Gerbing, whose family owned and operated the business
for 48 years, Potter was an employee of the restaurant in the 1970’s and
purchased the business in January of 2017. Ray Kautz, the Director of Wholesale
for Bob’s Pizza has been named General Manager. Potter will work with Kautz and
the Kornelis during the transition period and will retire once the sale is
finalized. A post on the Downtown Fond

Partnership’s Facebook page says Bob’s will
open at 11 am today.
