On May 5, 1986, 30 years ago today, we opened our 6th pizzeria in Chicago’s River North neighborhood at 439 North Wells Street. This was an exciting accomplishment on its own, but it was even more exciting because this was the first Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria within the Chicago city limits.
Looking at this bustling pizzeria today, you would never know the Malnati family almost had to close the doors just a few months after its opening. A CTA construction project shut down Wells Street and business took a big hit. Fortunately, they persevered, and today, River North Lou’s is one of our busiest restaurants!
Our “Balloon Platoon” is setting up shop from 5-7pm at River North Lou’s. Place an order for dine-in or carryout (minimum $10 purchase required) and win a prize! Everyone is a winner, with great prizes including t-shirts, hats, free appetizers, free desserts, and more, but one lucky customer will win a $100 gift card!
Lou Malnati’s Phoenix is opening in just a few weeks, and we’ve been busy putting the finishing touches on our first out-of-state pizzeria.
Check out a photo of the installation of our new neon sign. We can’t wait to see it all lit up on opening day, Monday, May 16th at 4pm!
