So when a customer called our Lincoln Square/North Center pizzeria and wanted a few pizzas delivered literally across the street, you would think we would just, you know, walk it over. Well, Marc Malnati decided to try a few more… interesting techniques. Watch the video to see what happened!
This year’s benefit is on Saturday, September 12th at The Meadows Club in Rolling Meadows. We’re taking a trip back to the Roaring Twenties for an evening of folly and fundraising with our theme of Flappers & Fellas. All proceeds from the event benefit:
Last year, more than $260,000 was raised at the 44th annual event to benefit these organizations, and this year, we hope to have the same success. Donations to the Lou Malnati’s Cancer Research Fund can be made at any Lou Malnati’s pizzeria or online at www.lmcb.org. Sponsorships, raffle tickets, and tickets to the event are also available for purchase online.
Matthew LaChappelle is a hard-working team member at our Evanston pizzeria. His story was featured in a blog post on JJ’s List, a website that connects businesses and people with disabilities. Matthew works hard and doesn’t let his disability hold him back. In the article, when talking about his job, Matthew says, “I like vacation but I love to work the most,” and “I think work is a way to self-advocate because it shows that you are a great person and you can do the work.”

Every year, Lou Malnati’s hosts a company picnic for all employees and their families. With carnival rides and games, a huge soccer tournament with teams from every location (who doesn’t love a little friendly competition?) and of course lots of good food to eat, the company picnic is a great way for everyone to get together to celebrate the great company we work for.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
And that means, every year, we send a team from Lou Malnati’s to California to meet with the growers and inspect the tomatoes to ensure we are picking only the best. Marc Malnati recently visited WCIU’s You & Me This Morning to talk about this process. Check out the segment below for an exclusive behind the scenes look!
