At Lou Malnati’s Flossmoor, we have been serving up deep dish pizza for a little over a week since our opening on October 12th, but Marc Malnati was officially welcomed back to the area at a formal ribbon cutting ceremony with Mayor Braun and Chamber of Commerce officials yesterday afternoon.
After the first Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria in Flossmoor closed in 1978, this opening is especially sweet for the Malnati family, because this time, deep dish is here to stay!
If you haven’t stopped by our newest carrout yet, the ribbon has been cut and we are officially open for business! Lou Malnati’s Flossmoor is located at 3315 Vollmer Road in the Flossmoor Commons Centre, offering carryout, delivery (within zone), and catering.
It’s official! Earlier today, Rick Malnati was joined by Mayor Rahm Emanuel for a ground breaking at the site of the next Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, located near Midway Airport at 6456 South Cicero Avenue!
Illinois Speaker of the House Michael Madigan, Alderman Marty Quinn, President of the Malnati Organization, Mark Agnew, and Director of Facilities, Sasha Milosavljevich were also on hand to celebrate the ground breaking. Malnati shared excitement about joining the growing Midway neighborhood:
“We are thrilled to be able to join the Midway neighborhood. A number of developments are breaking ground along Cicero Avenue, and we’re excited to see the neighborhood change for the better.”
Mayor Emanuel echoed this sentiment, saying, “This new pizzeria is a win for the Midway neighborhood.” After the speeches and ground breaking, the group also enjoyed a “first bite” of Lou Malnati’s deep dish pizza.
Check out a few photos from the day below…

5 years ago, we opened our Gold Coast location at 1120 N. State Street. It’s our flagship location, and is still the largest Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria to date. There are lots of things to love about this pizzeria, but in honor of its 5th anniversary, here are 5 things we love about Lou Malnati’s Gold Coast…
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!
