Pizzeria by Lou Malnati plans to open its fifth location in the Milwaukee area in the past three years.

The Chicago-based deep-dish pizza chain announced plans Thursday for a new carrier and delivery store, which will open mid-summer at 8171 S. Howell Ave. in Oak Creek, just southeast of Drexel Town Square.

The 1,700 square foot “hub” will only offer delivery, curbside pickup and delivery service, no catering. Lou Malnati has similar concepts in Fox Point, green field and Waukesha. He owns a full-service restaurant in Brookfield.

The company entered the local market in 2019 with plans to open four to five take-out delivery stores and two to three full-service restaurants over three to five years, owner Marc Malnati Told BizTimes Milwaukee in an October 2019 interview.

Lou Malnati’s is looking to fill approximately 50 positions at the Oak Creek location, including telephone staff, delivery drivers and kitchen crew. The company will host a hiring event on Tuesday, June 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at TownePlace Suites by Marriott Milwaukee, located at 7980 S. Market St. in Oak Creek.

There will be scheduled interviews due to limited space for the event. In addition, free personal pizza coupons will be given to anyone who responds to an interview. Qualified candidates can apply via Indeed, Snagajob or via Lou Malnati websiteaccording to a press release Thursday.
