Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria in Flossmoor – a history

Marc Malnati, owner of the popular pizza chain, is delighted to reopen the business’s doors in Flossmoor and provided the following history for the H-F Chronicle.

We have been about the business of opening a few stores every year, as we seek to spread the gospel of deep-dish pizza. But the thing that makes this store so unique is that it was this very location in The Flossmoor Commons Centre which almost bankrupted our 45-year old company before we even got started.

It was the winter of 1976-77 . . .
