Mugshots restaurant plans still on table

By NEMS Daily Journal

TUPELO – The franchise holder for Mugshots Grill & Bar in Tupelo said the project is still on the table.
There has been talk that the restaurant won’t be built in the Fairpark District adjacent to the Renasant Center for IDEAs, but Johnny Robbins said that’s not the case.
“It’s probably going to happen,” he said. “If not by me, then somebody. … no firm decision has been made one way or the other.”
Robbins noted that he’s already made a significant investment in the project, having paid $220,000 for the lot in October, in addition to architectural and other fees.
Mugshots opened its first restaurant in Hattiesburg in 2004 and has added locations in Starkville, Flowood, Biloxi, Tuscaloosa, Ala, Baton Rouge and Vestavia Hills, Ala.
