Steak ‘N Shake Announces New Clinton Location

Restaurant is second metro Jackson area location

Clinton, Miss. (January 8, 2019) Steak ‘N Shake and the City of Clinton announce the location of a new Steak n’ Shake in Clinton at 4900 Hampstead Boulevard. This will be the second Steak ‘N Shake for the metro Jackson Area.

The City of Clinton and Steak ‘N Shake held a Ground Breaking Ceremony on Wednesday, January 8, 2020 at the future location of Steak ‘N Shake at 4900 Hampstead Boulevard in Clinton.

Steak ‘N Shake is famous for the original “Steakburger” and hand-dipped milkshakes. The Clinton location will be around 2,500 square feet and will offer dine in and drive through service and will strive to continue the tradition of serving the country’s best, freshest and tastiest burgers and shakes. Steak ‘N Shake will provide at least 30 new jobs to this area. The build out is expected to last about six months, weather permitting, and the Grand Opening will be in early fall 2020.

“I am extremely proud to welcome Steak ‘N Shake to Clinton. They will be an important fixture of our business community and partner as we continue to develop the Clinton restaurant market to serve our community and those who traverse the Interstate 20 corridor,” stated Mayor Phil Fisher. “Economic Development success does not occur overnight. This announcement is the culmination of many months of hard work and planning.”

In the works for several months, Steak ‘N Shake was recruited to Clinton by Economic Development Director Gabriel Prado and Mayor Phil Fisher.

According to franchisee Mike Dickson, Mayor Phil Fisher and Gabriel Prado were important advocates in the recruitment of the restaurant and closing of the land transaction to make this new restaurant a reality.

“Mayor Fisher and Gabriel Prado were wonderful to work with. They have been solid advocates on the land transaction and approval of the site plan of the development. Clinton is definitely business friendly and welcoming,” stated Mike Dickson of Steak ‘N Shake.

Steak ‘N Shake will be located along Hampstead Boulevard at the busy Springridge Road/Interstate 20 interchange, the new restaurant will have visibility to over 35,000 cars per day that travel the area.

Clinton officials believe that the location along Hampstead is ideal for success of the new business and a prime location for future growth of additional businesses to the community.

““I want to thank Mike Dickson and his partners for choosing the City of Clinton for their new Steak ‘N Shake location. The thriving growth in Clinton is pushing a boom in new home construction, and our hotel demand has increased over 25 % over the last year.   With the arrival of Steak ‘N Shake, Clinton continues to show that it is positioned as a top market in the metro area for commercial developments with low real estate costs, high household incomes, and one of the top school districts in the state,” stated Gabriel Prado, Economic Development Director for Clinton.

Wednesday’s announcement is not the culmination of business recruitment, but serves as a catalyst for additional Economic Development in 2020.
