Lou Malnati’s

"Welcome to Glendale, Lou Malnati’s!"

You can never have enough pizza, can you?

So, welcome to Glendale, Lou Malnati’s!

We will have to wait a bit before we dig into the Chicago-style pizza chain.

According to the Phoenix Business Journal, the deep-dish pizza makers will open a new delivery- and takeout-only location at 75th Avenue and Rose Garden Lane just north of Loop 101 in Glendale.

The company’s website, loumalnatis.com, gives a little background:

“Lou Malnati got his start in the 1940s working in Chicago’s first deep dish pizzeria. He took his pizza expertise to Lincolnwood, a northern suburb of Chicago, where he and his wife Jean opened the first Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria on March 17, 1971.”

Lou has since passed away, but it’s still a family business, now spread across the country.

Until the new pizza joint opens in Glendale,  you can drive to one of the three Lou Malnati’s around Phoenix. The closest is at 100 East Camelback Road in Phoenix; phone 602-892-9998.

A hiring event will be announced closer to the Glendale opening.

The Phoenix Business Journal also reported that developer Josh Simon is purchasing the retail center at 75th Avenue and Rose Garden. 

A Dunkin’ Donuts drive-through is the other tenant.

The kids at nearby Sierra Verde Elementary School can hardly wait ...

Big project: Lincoln Property Company announced the $11.7 million purchase of 71 acres in Glendale. “Park303: is between Bethany Home Road and Glendale Avenue
