The Dirt: Hop Jacks, Intermountain West, Physzique

Hop Jack’s plans Valley Mall store

Restaurant chain Hop Jack’s will open its ninth Washington location on Nov. 3 in the Spokane Valley Mall. The address is 14700 E. Indiana Ave.; the space is near the movie theater.

That mall location has 4,700 square feet, including bar space. There will be patio seating for 48 in the spring. The restaurant will employ about 100 people and is in the process of hiring.

Hop Jack’s is a full-service restaurant that features 16 beers on tap and specialty cocktails. The chain was founded in Bonney Lake, Washington, in 2009 and has restaurants in Spokane at Northpoint, plus in Klahanie, Silverdale, Lacey, Lakeland Hills, Lynnwood and Maple Valley.

Manufacturer builds warehouse

Intermountain West Insulation & Garage Doors has moved into a new warehouse and office building at 16314 E. Lacrosse Lane, in Spokane Valley.

The company purchased the property and spent roughly $1 million constructing the 13,000-square-foot building.

Intermountain West provides insulation and doors for residential and commercial construction. It has a head office in the Tri-Cities with additional sites in Wenatchee, Spokane Valley and Yakima.

Building design was provided by Spokane architect Jim Haines.

Fourth Physzique to open in CdA

Physzique Fitness Training will open its fourth area location, moving into 5,800 square feet at 2480 Old Mill Loop Road, in the Riverstone retail development in Coeur d’Alene.

Owners Zach and Amy Hunt say the center will open in late December. They have centers in Liberty Lake, on North Division and on Spokane’s South Hill. They will open a fifth location in Kennewick next year.

With four trainers, the center provides personalized fitness training six days a week.

Bob Spooner, of Goodale & Barbieri, helped arrange the lease.
