It's been a long wait for many, but that wait will soon be over: Steak 'n Shake is opening Monday, June 17 in Tupelo.
The restaurant is training employees as you read this, while work continues on the building, parking lot and landscaping. Some 50 full and part-time employees will staff the location.
Some tidbits from an earlier post about the restaurant:
The restaurant dining area covers 1,308 square feet
Total occupancy (not including the kitchen that covers 1,114 square feet) is 88.
The plan is for 16 tables for two diners each, two tables for four diners each, four small booths for four people each, six large booths for six people each and six counter seats. Optional exterior seating includes four tables for three people each. That brings total seating to 96.
Steak ‘n Shake will sit just north of Community Bank and across the street from Outback Steakhouse.
