FLOWOOD, Mississippi — Outback Steakhouse plans to open a second Jackson-area eatery next summer in Flowood, Steve Grantham, president of J&R Restaurant Group confirmed Tuesday.

“It will be across from Dogwood Festival, on the southeast corner of Market Street,” said Grantham. “If all goes according to plan, we’ll break ground in mid-January.” He hopes to be open by June 1.

The new Outback, which will cost upwards of $3 million to build, will have a different look from the area’s other restaurant on I-55 North in Jackson.

“This will have a complete new prototypical design, which is the current look Outback is going with now.”

J&R Restaurant Group is based in Jackson and owns eight Outback Steakhouses, six in Mississippi and two in west Tennessee.
