What’s new at Lou’s
Downers Grove Patch featured District 99’s 2020 Pizza Wars!
On Wednesday, February 26th our Downers Grove location competed in District 99’s Pizza Wars! It was a great event, joined with other local pizzerias and close to 700 residents. The event raised nearly $20,000 to benefit students and be used toward grants at Downers Grove North and South High School! Attendees voted on their favorite sauce, crust and overall. Lou’s won best crust third year in a row! Special thanks to our Field Marketing Specialist, Madie and the Downers Grove team for attending the event and handing out pizza to the hungry participants.
On Friday, February 28th, Lou’s was at WGN TV studio to deliver a hot fresh pizza to actor, Michael Rapaport, who was in Chicago for his comedy tour.
Rapaport had previously mentioned that Chicago pizza was “overrated.” During Jeff Hoover’s segment “True or False”, Jeff surprised Rapaport with a Chicago Classic from Lou’s. Needless to say, that morning he left a fan. Special thanks to the Lincoln Square team for the early morning pizzas! Watch the full True or False segment here!
Later that day, Lou’s was in downtown Milwaukee for 99.1 The Mix!
The Mix was hosting a private showing of Fitz and the Tantrums for 100 lucky listeners. Lou’s was there to provide some lunch for all who attended, including the radio staff! A lot of people had never tried Lou’s before and didn’t know there was a new location in Fox Point. We had a great time and heard some great music.
Friday night, Lou’s provided pizza for the Jeremy Piven Live Event – a Benefit for Piven Theatre Workshop at the Community House in Winnetka.
We served deep dish samples to over 100 guests! It was a great stand-up comedy night featuring local comedian, Chris Bader and actor, Jeremy Piven. Special thanks to our team and the Wilmette store for the support!
On Saturday, February 29th, Lou’s was up in Libertyville for the first annual Libertyville/Vernon Hills Code Ninja’s Kid Expo & Summer Camp Fair.
It was a great success featuring local vendors, free kids activities, raffles and prizes. We served over 350 people and everyone loved Lou’s deep dish pizza!
