JORDAN VALLEY — Starting this fall, dining options for date night will double for Jordan Valley residents.

Big Loop Pizza and Subs is slated to open in October and will be the town’s second restaurant, according to owner Shelley Gluch.

“If you want something other than burgers and chicken strips, here you go,” Jordan Valley Recorder Anne Stephens said.

When Gluch briefly worked as a server at JV Café, the only other restaurant in Jordan Valley, she heard requests for pizza and longing for a nearby Subway. If Jordan Valley residents wanted those luxuries, they would have to drive over 170 miles roundtrip.
