In 1995, Lou Malnati’s Lawndale opened with the goal of helping to rejuvenate the neighborhood and serve the residents of Lawndale delicious pizza, of course! We promised to give any profits from the store back to the community to benefit children’s educational and recreational programs. In 2011, the Lawndale restaurant turned its first profit, and as promised, the money was donated back to the community.
Today, 25 years after the opening of Lou Malnati’s Lawndale, we’re continuing to give back to the community, while serving the residents of Lawndale. In addition to giving back, we have partnered with the Lawndale Community Church to create a job-training program for residents of the church’s recovery program, Hope House, to get them back in the working world.
We love being a part of the Lawndale community, and we’re looking forward to many more years of giving back!
