Outback Steakhouse is debuting its newest restaurant location in Flowood, Mississippi, opening its doors at 11 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 8. 

To show its support of the local community, 50 percent of the restaurant's opening day sales (up to $5,000) will be donated to Batson Children's Hospital, benefitting the Pediatric Neuromuscular Center and Camp Rainbow. The new restaurant will serve lunch daily and will be the first in the state of Mississippi to feature a new Modern Australia design both inside and out.

"We're very proud to bring Outback to the Flowood community and surrounding areas," says Steve Grantham Jr., president, J&R Restaurant Group, a franchise of Outback Steakhouse. "The mayor and city of Flowood employees have been absolutely great to work with in bringing the construction phase of this project to closure. With the opening of the Flowood Outback, we have expanded our Outback family to include over 100 new employees."

To mark the official grand opening, the Flowood Outback restaurant is inviting local area residents to attend a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Chamber of Flowood  at 10:45 a.m. on Sept. 8. 

The Flowood Outback will feature a Modern Australia design with decor that mirrors the indigenous flora and fauna, adventure, geography and leisure of modern day Australia. Guests will also enjoy a spacious, energetic bar area that includes a community table, a great place to meet up with friends and enjoy specialty beer, wine, and hand-crafted cocktails. The new bar will also feature customized seating and furnishings and is connected directly to the outdoor dining patio.

The restaurant will open daily for lunch at 11 a.m.
