The owners of Missoula’s South Crossing redevelopment project announced three new tenants this week, each related to the food industry.
Kraig Erickson, manager of leasing and development for the Woodbury Corp., said MacKenzie River Pizza Co. has broken ground on its new restaurant, to be located on South Reserve Street.
Noodles & Company and Jimmy John’s also plan to open restaurants in the development’s last remaining lot off Brooks Street.
“My wife grew up here and I used to coach at the university,” said Lance Robinson, owner of MacKenzie River. “We have a lot of friends who live over there on the south side of town who don’t drive to our current restaurant, so we thought this would be a good location.”
MacKenzie River already has two restaurants in Missoula, one located downtown, the other on North Reserve.
