Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria Location in Broad Ripple Now Open

Legendary Deep Dish Pizzeria Debuted Third Indy Location; First Full-Service in the City on Nov. 1

Indianapolis, IN -- (Jan. 11, 2022) – Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, based in Northbrook, IL, has expanded in the Indianapolis area. The famous deep dish pizzeria opened the doors to its newest location at 6320 Ferguson St., Indianapolis, on Monday, November 1, 2021. Located adjacent to the Fresh Thyme Market in the Broad Ripple neighborhood, the pizzeria is situated north of the Central Canal Trail and is an ideal location for deep dish dining in the village. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022 to celebrate the grand opening.

The 5,600 square foot space seats approximately 160 guests and is the company’s first full-service restaurant and bar with dine-in, carryout and delivery service in Central Indiana. The Broad Ripple pizzeria joins carryout and delivery locations that opened on West 86th Street in March 2021 and Carmel in October 2020. The new space includes a dining room, full-service bar and outdoor patio with generous seating. It also features a separate entry for carryout with ample parking. The restaurant offers easy curbside pick-up, no-contact delivery, and drop-off catering services for hungry fans in the Broad Ripple area.

While the menu is highlighted by the legendary deep dish pizza, it also offers thin crust pizza along with delicious appetizers, salads, pastas and desserts. A roller coaster design over the booths and carnival theme pay homage to the former early 1900’s amusement park, that was located in what is now Broad Ripple Park. The restaurant’s atmosphere has a modern farmhouse vibe, with vintage murals that accent the walls and festival décor throughout. Restaurant hours are available online at www.loumalnatis.com/indiana.

The Malnati family has become famous for their original recipe, top-notch quality and hospitality since opening in 1971. Currently, the business is headed by Marc Malnati, Lou Malnati’s son, and he proudly carries on the family tradition. The organization also has several local ties to Indiana University, Purdue University and Butler University, including Marc Malnati, owner of Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, Heather Stege, president of Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, Mike Archer, CEO of Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, and other proud Hoosiers, graduates and supporters within the company.

“We’re excited to bring our authentic deep dish pizza to the Broad Ripple neighborhood and to open our first full-service restaurant in the Indianapolis area,” said Marc Malnati, owner of Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria.  “We feel fortunate to be expanding during these unprecedented times and our team is thrilled to become part of the vibrant and thriving Broad Ripple village. We’re committed to providing jobs at our restaurants and supporting the local community with Hoosier hospitality,” added Malnati.
