If you've been waiting for Lou Malnati's to come to Rockford, it'll be here sooner than you think.

Lou Malnati's plan to bring a carry-out and delivery only location to Rockford was announced in late August 2018.

Since then, little has come out regarding the opening. Speculation at the time was this month (January 2019) but it appears it's going to just miss the date.

A phone call to Lou Malnati's Corporate Office revealed that yes, the plan is for the Rockford location to open in February.

Followed up with a message I received from a fan yesterday that said:

If that's true we're two weeks from Lou's opening in Rockford. Just enough time to start game planning your first order. So what's it gonna be?
