Lou Malnati’s deep dish pizza will be available this summer in Greenwood, the fourth central Indiana location for the 51-year-old company closely associated with Chicago-style pie.

The pizzeria will open in a space previously occupied by a Supercuts at 791 State Road 135, part of the Shops at Smith Valley retail center.

Construction will begin at the 1,400-square-foot site this spring, according to the company. The Lou Malnati’s in Greenwood will not include a dining room, but it will offer carryout and delivery services.

In November, Lou Malnati’s opened a full-service restaurant and bar in Broad Ripple at 6320 Ferguson St. Carryout-and-delivery locations opened in Carmel, 11435 Spring Mill Road, in October 2020, and on the northwest side of Indianapolis, 2902 W. 86th St., in March 2021.

Lou Malnati’s owner Marc Malnati, son of the company’s namesake founder, graduated from Indiana University in 1977. The company’s president, Heather Stege, graduated from IU in 2000.

Based in Northbrook, Illinois, Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria operates more than 70 locations in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Arizona.

  1. Good luck picking up a carry out order. Getting to this particular location is a nightmare thanks to the mess that is the intersection of SR135 and Smith Valley Road. It’s overbuilt and always backed up.

    Greenwood, though, is in no hurry to make life easier for the residents of unincorporated White River Township aka Center Grove. The residents deal with traffic nightmares to shop or eat along SR135, Greenwood uses the tax revenue to help rebuild their downtown.

  2. I went to the one in Carmel and was pretty grossed out. I hope they do well here but that will require putting out an authentic product like the original LM’s in Chicago.
