After years of speculation, it appears that Steak ‘n Shake really is coming to Tupelo.
But not where rumors have said it would go.
An email from TRI Inc. Realtors’ Commercial arm proudly proclaims, “Join Steak ‘n Shake at Pinnacle Point in Tupelo.”
Pinnacle Point is the $50 million project envisioned by Tupelo hotelier and developer Bruce Patel, who is building a senior living community as well as retail shops and restaurants to complement the development.
Steak ‘n Shake will be on one of out-parcel properties on and facing North Gloster Street, and just north of Community Bank.
Franchise owner Matthew McKnight said the store should open by March of next year.
He said the restaurant’s dining area will cover 1,500 to 2,000 square feet and will employ approximately 50 full- and part-time employees.
But yeah – Steak n’ Shake!
