Good food, "Havin' A Good Time", and Giving Back is what Mugshots Grill & Bar is all about. Located on Main Street in the Fairpark District, the newest addition to the Mugshots brand in Mississippi opened its doors for business on Tuesday, June 2.

After hosting their "Eat Good, Give Back" soft opening fund raising event the weekend before, Mugshots Grill & Bar and their nonprofit, Making Life Grand, were able to raise funds and awareness for the Tupelo-Lee Humane Society. “The opening in Tupelo has been overwhelming,” said Sam McAlister, Marketing Director for Mugshots. “We had so many reservations, we had no more space for three days. That’s never happened.” Tuesday morning during the opening day ribbon cutting ceremony Mugshots founders and their local franchisees presented a check to the Tupelo-Lee Humane Society in the amount of $17,859. " I think the future is bright," said founder Chris McDonald. "I think this store will be a staple of North Mississippi. We've been in this state for about ten years now, starting in Hattiesburg, MS, and its been great seeing all the support we have had." The Tupelo opening marks the thirteenth location of the Mugshots brand with 2 more locations slated to open this year.
