Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, based in Northbrook, Illinois, has a Mesa site under construction at 3510 E Baseline Road Suite L5-D-103 that is to open later this summer.
The deep-dish pizzeria is to be in a multi-tenant retail building in Dana Park Village Shops adjacent to Panda Express, at the northwest corner of East Baseline Road and South Val Vista Drive, according to a release.
The 2,100-square-foot space in Mesa will not include a dining room, but will offer carryout and delivery only. The new location will provide curbside pick-up, no-contact delivery and drop-off catering services.
Malnati’s will hire approximately 50 employees. The company is looking to fill various positions including delivery drivers, kitchen crew and phone staff. The store managers are holding interviews and will be conducted in-person or via Zoom, depending on availability. Interested applicants are asked to provide proof of authorization to work in the U.S. and a resume, if applicable. Also, qualified candidates may apply at loumalnatis.com/careers or by texting “Lous” to 242424.
The pizzeria is owned and operated by second generation family members as Lou Malnati’s son, Marc Malnati, continues to build the company, carry on the family tradition and honor their legacy. Celebrating its 50th anniversary in business this year, Lou Malnati’s operates over 60 Chicagoland area restaurants in addition to Indianapolis, Milwaukee and Phoenix, the release states.
“Since our first location opened in Arizona, we’ve been welcomed with open arms and are so grateful to our loyal fan base,” Marc Malnati said in a statement. “Our team is excited to expand in the Valley and make a home in the vibrant and thriving city of Mesa.”
