As we embark on our 50th year, we take pride in the fact that while plenty has changed since 1971, we have stayed true to our roots through our dedication to quality, hospitality and serving up deep dish delights!
On March 17, 1971, Lou and his wife Jean, opened our first deep dish pizzeria in Lincolnwood, a northern suburb of Chicago. From that restaurant, a recipe for success was created and a legacy was born and continues today through Lou’s sons Marc and Rick, and a team devoted to deep dish.
See more Malnati memories from Marc, Rick, & Jean here.
We’re planning an entire year of exciting 50th Anniversary special events, promotions, and contests for customers and our team.
Get the dish on the happenings right here, and be sure to check back often or sign up for Malnati Mail to receive 50th Anniversary updates so you don’t miss out on any of the fun!
