Mugshots Grill & Bar announces the ground breaking for the 2015 opening in Tupelo, Mississippi.
Century Construction of Tupelo will break ground in September with plans to open in the spring of 2015. Mugshots will also announce a partnership with the Lee County Humane Society for the company's 'Eat Good, Give Back' fundraising event, held prior to opening day.
"It's an exciting time for the Mugshots brand and family," says Mugshots Grill & Bar COO, Chris Banchero. "We're extremely excited about taking the Mugshots brand to the Tupelo area and becoming part of the local community."
Mugshots will host a groundbreaking ceremony Friday, Aug. 22, at 11 a.m. to announce local franchise owners Ben and Johnny Robbins and the plans for the 2015 opening in the Downtown Fairpark District.
"We couldn't be more excited about bringing the Mugshots brand to Tupelo, and at the same time helping further the development of the downtown area," says local franchise owner, Johnny Robbins.
The franchise concept has 11 locations in three states, with two more locations slated to open in late 2014 and early 2015 before the Tupelo opening. The newest Mugshots Grill & Bar location will be opening in Auburn, Alabama, in mid-September of this year.
