A California pair plan on bringing something new to the town, taking the place of a business stalwart of nearly the past 15 years.
Kayle and Nick Kiesling will be remodeling Originals by Kim into 50's Pizza and Pub after purchasing the space. After 14 years, Kim Rimel plans on retiring the business in May and the Kieslings thought it would be nice to keep the location in the family and continue on the building's livelihood.
Explore Variety Store will be staying at its current location within the building. Before these two shops, the building housed California Roller Rink; next on the list is a pizza parlor.
The Kieslings said they thought California was missing a dine-in pizza option where families could spend time for dinners and birthday parties, as well as a place for friends and sports-lovers to come together for all their game day needs.
Though they're not able to start renovations until June 1, the pair said they are excited to bring a new locally owned business to California. As owners, they will be working at the shop, too, but they look forward to hiring on a few people and providing a few jobs for locals. The shop will be offering most pizza toppings, a thin crust option, fresh salads, wings, breadsticks and baked subs once it opens. There will not be a buffet or salad bar option; instead, options will be menu-based, but the plan is to use fresh ingredients and their own recipes for the dough and sauce.
They plan on painting the building inside and out, putting in new flooring, adding televisions throughout and a patio outside to enjoy the nice weather.
The Kieslings are excited to be bringing a new pizza location to California, and they hope the rest of California is, too.
