Chicago based Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria announces today it will be opening its third Arizona location in Scottsdale.  The opening is slated for early summer 2018.

The new full service restaurant will be Malnati’s largest Arizona location to date at 10,000 square feet, including a spacious outdoor patio area. The pizzeria will include a full bar along with carryout, delivery and catering services. It will be located within the “Chauncey Lane” development announced last week by DBM Ventures – a 53,000-square-foot mixed-use project located near Scottsdale Road off AZ State Route 101.

Lou Malnati’s Scottsdale plans to hire more than 150 employees prior to its opening in summer 2018.   Earlier this year, Lou Malnati’s announced its second Arizona location opening in the Arcadia neighborhood set to open this fall. Located at 3431 North 56th Street at the southeast corner of Indian School Road and 56th Street, Lou Malnati’s Arcadia will offer carryout, delivery, and catering services.

“We have been overwhelmed by the response this past year and are ready to expand so that we can serve more of our authentic deep dish to the people of Arizona,” said Marc Malnati, owner of Lou Malnati’s. “We are looking forward to immersing ourselves in more local communities.”

While the design details are still in the works for Lou Malnati’s Scottsdale, one key component remains the same.  Arizona’s pizza lovers can rest assured that they are experiencing an authentic taste of Chicago.

  • Dough made from scratch – Every Lou Malnati’s pizza is handmade from scratch. Malnati’s team worked tirelessly to recreate the authentic buttery, flaky crust in Arizona just as it is in Chicago.
  • Mozzarella cheese – Delivered fresh from the same small, Wisconsin dairy farm that has supplied Lou Malnati’s for more than 40 years.
  • Vine ripened tomatoes– Every year, the Lou Malnati’s foodie team travels to California to meet with their tomato growers.  The team stays until the tomatoes are at their absolute sweetest, reddest, and plumpest.  They are then canned within hours of being pulled from the vines.
