Caney Fork Restaurant Announces the Opening of New Restaurant in Tupelo, MS on March 8, 2010

NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwire - February 19, 2010) - Caney Fork Restaurant will officially open its Tupelo, MS location on March 8, 2010 and will be the second opening in the great state of Mississippi in the last 30 days.

The opening will mark the second of six units to be opened this year by Caney Fork Restaurant. "We pride ourselves on our casual atmosphere and great quality southern style fare. We opened two weeks ago in Columbus, MS and the community has responded very positively with more than 3,000 customers visiting the restaurant during our first week," states Josh Weis, Vice President. "Judging by the emails and inquiries we are getting from the people of Tupelo it appears the buzz has been building and we are so excited to be a part of the Tupelo community."

Caney Fork also operates a 10,000 sq ft restaurant located in Nashville at the front gates of Gaylord Opryland. Tourists from more than a dozen states have come to know Caney Fork's awesome steaks, catfish, and ribs as they have visited the nationally famous Gaylord Opryland. "Since we have become so well known by the many people who have visited the original Caney Fork over the years, we felt it was time to take the brand to several southern towns who could really appreciate good southern food and great prices," states Josh Weis. "You will not find a better value or better service in the South. We offer everything from Fried Pickles or Green Beans for appetizers, to pulled pork or our famous Caney Burger for lunch, to our Shrimp and Grits or Slow Cooked Ribs with the best BBQ sauce you will ever taste for dinner. You can finish it off with a homemade banana pudding or cobbler and we will guarantee you will be satisfied."

The newest menu was recently launched in Nashville and the reviews have been phenomenal. Our customers have complimented the wonderful new menu items and are applauding that we now have 10 entrees for under $10.

Caney Fork will be located at 713 S Gloster Street, Tupelo, MS 38801 between the Tupelo Mall and the North Mississippi Medical Center. Caney Fork will bring approximately 80 new jobs to the Tupelo area and will be accepting applications after February 23rd. Management applications can be completed online at and all other applicants are asked to complete applications at the store. Weis went on to say, "Our goal is to have the decor in each location reflect as much of the local people, business and culture as we can and to hire as many local residents to make sure Caney Fork is truly a local Tupelo family restaurant." Our slogan says it all..."Where Family and Friends Eat!"
