A former Knolla’s Pizza is now the first of several planned Geno & John’s Pizzas

WICHITA — The former Knolla’s Pizza at Harry and Webb is now called Geno & John’s Pizza.

Owner John Giroux had to change the name.

“There were some circumstances that arose here in the last month or two that were not in any way acceptable to me as the originator of Knolla’s Pizza,” says Pat Knolla. “As a consequence, I decided to ask Mr. Giroux to get our name down off of that building.”

Giroux says, “I wanted to do other stores. They don’t want to have other stores.”

Neither Knolla nor Giroux will go into further details.

Giroux next plans Geno & John’s on West 21st between Tyler and Ridge.

He’s also looking at potential downtown sites.
