Cheers to 40 Years!
Lou Malnati's has a rich history that is deeply rooted in family, pizza and tradition. What started out as a family endeavor has continued on that path and blossomed into a deep dish corner stone of Chicago.
|Jean, Marc, Rick and Lou MalnatiThe first Lou Malnati's opened in Lincolnwood on March 17, 1971 and here we are, 40 years later with 32 locations across the Chicagoland and we can't help but feel grateful and humbled. What has helped set us apart from the rest hasn't just been our signature deep dish, it's the values and beliefs which the company was built upon, the amazing customers that have supported us through the years, and the incredible employees that we have come to think of as family. We have so much to be thankful for and so much to look forward to at the same time. We could not have gotten this far without the loyal customers that come back time after time and introduce their loved ones to Chicago-style pizza or the dedication of our employees that keep Lou's running like a well-oiled machine. Thank you. Thank you for your unwavering support and for 40 fantastic years - we are looking forward to 40+ more!
