Lou’s is one of only ten employers who were ranked a top workplace six years in a row, and we’re the only restaurant in the entire group. Many thanks to our employees for making Lou Malnati’s such a great place to work!
For the past five years, employees, friends, and families from Lou Malnati’s and Soul City Church have gathered to assemble Thanksgiving food baskets for local families in need. It’s an event for the whole family with all hands on deck, where the kids create hand-drawn cards to include in the baskets, and children and adults work together in an assembly line to fill the baskets.
Check out our video from last year’s event to see what it’s all about!

In 1995, Lou Malnati’s Lawndale opened with the goal of helping to rejuvenate the neighborhood and serve the residents of Lawndale delicious pizza, of course! We promised to give any profits from the store back to the community to benefit children’s educational and recreational programs. In 2011, the Lawndale restaurant turned its first profit, and as promised, the money was donated back to the community.
Today, 20 years after the opening of Lou Malnati’s Lawndale, we’re continuing to give back to the community, while serving the residents of Lawndale. In addition to giving back, we have partnered with the Lawndale Community Church to create a job-training program for residents of the church’s recovery program, Hope House, to get them back in the working world.
We love being a part of the Lawndale community, and we’re looking forward to many more years of giving back!
