The men and women of Hose Company 1 are retired members of the Naperville Fire Department who maintain the first firetrucks and equipment that are displayed at the Naperville History Building. In addition, they also preserve a fire engine from the early 1920’s. This fundraiser helps keep all of these artifacts in tact for future generations to enjoy.
A majority of the firefighters who helped with the fundraiser worked at the original firehouse before it was transformed into a restaurant. We look forward to this day every year!
This Monday September 26th, between 4-7pm, come on down to Lou Malnati’s in Naperville for an event with Naperville FireHose Company #1. Our restaurant was once Naperville’s original Firehouse and on Monday, the brave fire fighters who worked in our building will be coming back to raise money to preserve historical Naperville Police and Fire trucks and equipment. Guests will have a chance to explore a real fire truck, see the classic original NVFD equipment and even have their deep dish served by a real fire fighter at their table!
Fun fact: Does that garage in the photo look familiar? It’s now our dining room!
Join your Downtown Naperville Lou Malnati’s on the 30th of July, 2016, as we whimsically transform into Malnati’s Magical Pizza Emporium in honor of the release of the newest Harry Potter book!
For one day only, you can step into a pizzeria Harry Potter himself would frequent, because we all know, if Harry Potter ate deep dish pizza, it would surely be Lou Malnati’s!
Be sure to bring a few knuts, sickles, and galleons (for all of you muggles out there, that’s money!) to grab yourself a Butterbeer in a commemorative reusable cup. Delicious for both kids and adults, this magical concoction is made with cream soda and butterscotch syrup. Yum! For witches and wizards who are of age, we will also be offering an alcoholic version, for dine-in only.

One of our customers was so impressed with their dining experience, they took the extra time and effort to write us an email, praising Dakota’s service…
Dakota went above and beyond the moment he greeted us until the moment we left! He was busy with another large party but we never felt like we were neglected! I want to give praise where praise should be given and this guy deserves praise! He is an excellent member to have on your team and we will definitely be coming back because he made this experience so fantastic!
On May 21st, our Naperville team served deep dish pizza at the Alive Center’s Art Slam Fundraiser.
The Alive Center is a nonprofit offering workshops, classes, and events, all designed to foster physical and emotional well-being and inspire personal growth in teens and adults. All of the art sold at the event was donated by the community, or created by local artists! Proceeds will benefit programs at the Alive Center.
The Art Slam was a two-part event with a day portion, and a VIP cocktail party in the evening. We sampled slices of deep dish pizza at the day event, where guests enjoyed face painting, live art, games, and more!
