Bobe's Pizza X Ginger Ale's
Address: 620 W 9th Street Mt. Carmel, IL
Bobe’s Pizza is a family operation with three generations in the pizza business. Larry, or Poppy, as the grandkids know him, has been in the business since 1955. He opened a
location in Lawrenceville in 1982 where his sons Brad and Brett worked until opening their own location in Olney, Illinois in 2002. In 2017 they opened their location in Mount Carmel, Illinois. Recently they opened their newest location in downtown Albion, Illinois in March of 2022. Growing their business to five locations in Vincennes, Mount Carmel, Olney, Lawrenceville, and Albion!
Now, the third generation is learning the craft. Cody, Joe and Allie Bobe work together managing all locations. Two of Larry’s other grandchildren are very involved as well. You might find Madison taking your order with her famous smile and Hoa whipping up and delivering mouthwatering pizza and breadsticks. Bobe’s Pizza is made from scratch and from a family with love, a tradition that they care deeply about! Order in Mt. Carmel for pickup or delivery.
