Milwaukee, WI – (July 6, 2021) – Waukesha residents will have a legendary and delicious new place for pizza as the much anticipated Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria opens their fourth location in the greater Milwaukee area on Monday, July 12. The new location, approximately 1,800-square-foot space, will offer carryout and delivery service only, at 2730 N. Grandview Blvd. (at the intersection of Silvernail Rd.).

Local residents can satisfy their craving for Lou’s award-winning deep dish pizza by choosing easy curbside pick-up, no-contact delivery and drop off catering services.  The store hours will be Monday – Thursday from 4 p.m. – 10 p.m., Friday – Saturday from 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.

As the restaurant market continues to be saturated with national chains, Lou Malnati’s – originally opened in Chicago in 1971 – is known for its growing, family-owned and locally operated business model. The Malnati family is famous for their original deep dish pizza and hospitality, and the pizzeria is still owned and operated by second generation family members Marc Malnati, owner, and his brother Rick, owner, Lou Malnati’s sons who proudly carry on the family tradition. Celebrating its 50th anniversary in business this year, Lou Malnati’s currently operates three other Milwaukee area restaurants in Fox Point, Brookfield and Greenfield.

“We’re excited to bring our authentic deep dish pizza to our Waukesha neighbors, and we’re grateful for the overwhelmingly positive response of customers who tell us they love our food, hospitality, and local family owned and operated approach,” says Marc Malnati.

A key ingredient in Lou’s famous recipe comes straight from America’s Dairyland. “Lou’s pizza contains a flaky buttery crust, an exclusive sausage blend and Wisconsin cheese,” says Marc Malnati. “In fact, we strive to maintain long term relationships with our vendors and have used the same Wisconsin dairy farm for nearly 50 years to source our delicious mozzarella cheese. Wisconsinites can be proud that we owe our success to our exceptional cheese toppings.”

The Waukesha location is still looking to hire approximately 40 employees and is seeking delivery drivers, kitchen crew and phone staff for the new store. The company is currently holding interviews at the restaurant and interested applicants are asked to apply online at www.loumalnatis.com/careers or by texting “Lous” to 242424.

In addition to serving up their famous deep dish, Lou Malnati’s is also well known for giving back to the local communities they serve. The company frequently supports local charities and schools through fundraisers and volunteer involvement.  In the Waukesha area, the store has already been actively supporting La Casa De Esperanza.  Also, patrons of the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts will find Lou Malnati’s on-site at the summer Starry Nights event series kick-off this Friday, July 9.  The company looks forward to supporting other local events.
