Loop Pizza Grill in Nocatee opens for business

New restaurant brings burgers, pizza and salads to diners at the Nocatee Town Center


Nocatee residents have yet another option for “fast casual” dining in the community. The Loop Pizza Grill’s new location in the Nocatee Town Center is now open.

“This is a perfect place because it is family-focused,” said franchisee Maurilio Gonzalez in a news release. “People are able to walk, ride their bikes or drive their golf cart to our new location.”

The Loop offers a menu with soups, salads, pizza, burgers, shakes and a kids’ menu. The restaurant chain is based in Jacksonville and was founded in 1981. Today, there are 14 locations across two states.

The new Loop at Nocatee is 3,200 square feet and seats 130 people, including seating for 44 on the outdoor covered patio and room for 86 inside. The interior space features exposed beams, large windows and artwork from local artists.

This is Gonzalez’s third Loop Pizza Grill location. He also has franchises in Neptune Beach and Julington Creek. He plans to open two additional Loop locations on the First Coast in the next few years.

“We want to congratulate Maurilio on opening his latest Loop location,” said Loop co-founder and owner Mike Schneider. “Nocatee is thriving and the residents are just as excited as we are for The Loop to become part of the community."

The Loop Pizza Grill is open for lunch and dinner daily, and is located at 101 Marketside Ave. Call (904) 834-2078 for more information, or visit
