Bell’s Pizza–or Bell’s Greek Pizza, as it was properly called–on a pizza-slice of land at Packard and State has closed. Until recently, the property, though not the business, was still owned by grandchildren of founder Christos Bell, who died in 2015. Grandchildren Christos and Aristea sold the property to Faramarz Farahanchi. Bell’s obituary last October says that he opened the first Bell’s Greek Pizza in East Lansing in the 1970s and duplicated them in Ann Arbor and elsewhere. Christos and Aristea didn’t return messages left for them at the Bell’s Greek Pizza that still operates in East Lansing. The manager there said they don’t own it, but frequently stop in.
