Chances are, if you’ve stopped by our first out-of-state pizzeria in Phoenix, you’ve seen Marc Malnati. He’s been there almost every day since we opened, talking to customers about their Malnati memories, our move to Phoenix, and most of all, our legendary deep dish pizza!
I want to take a minute to thank the nearly 10,000 people of the greater Phoenix area that have made the effort to visit us, for the warmest reception that we could ever imagine. Your willingness to drive 30-40 miles and then to wait in long lines before having your first meal at our new restaurant has absolutely blown us away!
Our biggest goal in opening our first store outside of Chicago is to become an inextricable part of this community, while continually bringing you the best pizza we know how to make. We hope that you have felt as welcomed by me and our team as we have by you!
And for those of you that have yet to stop over, we hope you will give us a chance to make your day sometime very soon.
If you’re planning to make your first (or second…or third…fourth?!) trip to our new Phoenix pizzeria, we are located at 100 E Camelback Road in the Uptown Plaza Shopping Center. Stop by anytime Sunday-Thursday 4-11pm, or Friday & Saturday 4pm-Midnight.
Construction on our new Phoenix pizzeria is moving right along, and we’re still on track for a mid-May opening! Check out our latest photos for a sneak peek of what this pizzeria will look like once finished.
