Du Lit Owner Preston Zwolle in Fortville, Indiana.

Du Lit Owner and Chef Bringing His Fervor for Food to Fortville

As Fortville continues its growth, it is quickly becoming known as a destination in the Geist area for foodies, and Du Lit fits into that scene perfectly.

Located in the old bakery on Broadway, the Du Lit team and Owner Preston Zwolle are jumping into the Fortville food scene with a menu that has been inspired by his 15 years of restaurant experience, and also his personal journey to eat healthier.

“Preparing food that is healthy, and food that I like and that my family likes, is one of the biggest inspirations for my menu,” Zwolle said. On his health journey Zwolle lost over 90 pounds, and he maintains that newfound drive and energy with fire and passion for his culinary creations.

That same passion influenced the name of the business, along with Zwolle’s German heritage. “Du Lit has a rough translation of ‘your fire,’ and that passion I have for cooking is what I want my customers to experience when they come into the restaurant,” Zwolle said.

Du Lit’s menu will feature handmade pastas, sauces and seasonings made from scratch, slow-cooked pork, smash burgers, wraps and handhelds, salads, and several appetizers and shareables. Several of Du Lit’s menu items come in dairy-free and gluten-free options as well.

Du Lit is located at 101 West Broadway Street in Fortville. They offer indoor seating with an ambience that is decorated with Zwolle’s own artwork and creations. Once the weather begins to warm up, they will also have outdoor seating on their newly landscaped patio.
