About Us

In  1979  Mike  Vitow  arrived  at  Cultus  Lake  with  a  suitcase  and  some  wonderful  recipes  from  New  York  City  where  he  grew  up.

J. Beethoven's  Pizza  opened  its  doors  on  May  18th  of  that  year  and  has  pleased  thousand  of  people  since.  In  March  2005,  J. Beethoven's  was  purchased  by  Najib  Abunnadi  to  carry  on  the  26  year  old  tradition  of  J. Beethoven's  Pizza.


Why  J. Beethoven's?


At  the  time  Mike  was  considering  a  name  and  he  was  watching  the  movie  "A  clockwork  orange"  when  Beethoven's  Music  was  featured,  and  Mike  likes  Beethoven's  music.

Mike  has  a  friend  as  an  astrologist  who  suggested  the  letter  "J"  for  good  luck,  and  that's  how  the  name  became  a  reality.
