Brookfield, your Lou Malnati's Pizzeria is almost ready

Lou Malnati's Pizzeria, founded in 1971 and based in Northbrook, Illinois, has announced that its second Chicago deep dish pizzeria location in Wisconsin will open in late spring at 15795 W. Bluemound Rd.

The second, full-service Wisconsin restaurant – the first opened in Fox Point in December – will have more than 180 seats in a 7,750-square foot space and will also offer carry-out, delivery and drop-off catering services.

There will also be a patio, full bar and private party rooms.

Malnati's is famous for Chicago's unique deep-dish pizza.

The restaurant expects to hire about 100 local employees and will to host a hiring event in coming months.

"Our partners and dairy farmers up north have been critical to our success. We've been sourcing our cheese from the same vendors in Wisconsin for nearly 50 years," said Marc Malnati, son of founder Lou. "We plan to open several locations in the Milwaukee area, including two to three restaurants and four or five carryout and delivery stores over the next three to five years.

"We've identified some distinct areas where we want to be, based on demographics and strong population density, depending on the community. When people want to order in or go out with friends and family, we want a Lou Malnati's restaurant to be there and be the local pizza of choice."

School PTOs, get ready, because Malnati's says it "believes in becoming ingrained in the local communities through charitable giving, volunteer involvement and partnerships. The company will look to continue this tradition of generosity through fundraising and youth incentive programs to local schools, generous donation programs, and working with local charitable organizations."

Mangiate, Brookfield. Mangiate.
