The Park was packed to the gills with people and buzzing with musical energy the entire weekend. The music festival had a combined 3 day attendance of over 300,000 people! A crowd that big calls for a huge amount of sustenance. We served up about 30,000 slices of pizza over the course of the 3 days. Cranking out that much deep dish was no easy feat.
Every year, Lou Malnati’s organizes a company picnic and treats employees and their families to some fun in the sun. Complete with carnival rides, a giant soccer tournament with teams from each pizzeria, Bingo, volleyball, races, and delicious food, Lou’s annual company picnic is the company’s way of saying “thank you” to those that have worked so hard to help Lou’s get to where we are today.
The key to happy customers are happy employees – not only do we want our employees to enjoy what they do, we also want them to have some fun!
We apologize for any inconvenience.

On Monday, June 30th, Lou Malnati’s Internet Marketing Specialist, Meghan Ristau, gave a brief presentation at Mashable.com’s Social Media Day Chicago at Rockit Bar & Grill about Lou’s social media strategy and successes.
Social media has provided us with endless opportunities and ways for us to share our message with Lou’s fans all over the nation. This past year alone has been filled with many memorable moments for us – from our response to Jon Stewart dissing Chicago’s beloved deep dish to celebrating being named “Best Pizza in Chicago” in Eater Chicago’s poll, our fans have been with us every step of the way.
At the end of the night, Lou Malnati’s was honored with the 2014 Chicago Social Media Campaign of the Year in recognition for our efforts. However, we would like to thank you… yes, YOU! Thank you for engaging with us, thank you for joining the conversation, thank you for being social!
