Montana based Glacier Restaurant Group announced it will build a second MacKenzie River Pizza location at the corner of 57th and Regal, in Spokane.

It's going into the spot vacated by Hollywood Video on that corner.

Last year the company said it would put in a first MacKenzie River Pizza at a location near Jay and Nevada, in North Spokane. That first store is due to open later in June.

The new location is expected to open this fall. A company spokesman said it will employ about 70 workers. It will have 5,800 square feet.

Company COO Brad Ridgeway said the Hamilton, Mont.-based chain selected the Moran Prairie area for its second MacKenzie site because of retail mix and growing population.

The chain has 13 pizza operations in Montana and Idaho, including one shop in Coeur d'Alene.
