Jack’s restaurants in the middle of rapid expansion in this Mississippi region

Jack’s Family Restaurant wasn’t even a brand in the Mississippi Pine Belt a year ago. Now, two locations are open with at least two others either under construction or planned.

A Petal location opened in March and a Purvis location opened in May, which became the company’s 28th Mississippi restaurant. Now, an Ellisville location is nearing completion.

Although the Jack’s Family Restaurant company hasn’t announced a Laurel location yet, a website seeking bids has posted bids for work.
