Nashville, Tenn. — Back Yard Burgers has opened its new prototype and restaurant of the future in Gulfport, Miss. The new restaurant, which is owned by Back Yard Burgers’ largest franchise partner, Ridgeland, Miss.-based Resolute Brands LLC, is the first to feature the new Back Yard Burgers logo, exterior and interior signage, interior color scheme and décor, open kitchen design, furnishings, outdoor patio and more.

The new contemporary and open design will be featured in all future restaurants and franchisees will be provided re-design options.

The 3,000-square-foot restaurant is located in an outparcel at Crossroads Shopping Center. This is the eighth Mississippi location for Resolute Brand, which has Back Yard Burger restaurants in Oxford, Meridian, Madison, Flowood and Byram, Miss.

“Back Yard Burgers will be celebrating its 30th anniversary next year so this is the perfect time to refresh and modernize our restaurants,” says David McDougall, CEO of Back Yard Burgers. “We hope to impress our loyal guests and well as to turn some new heads by enriching the overall guest experience.”

Resolute Brands, a 19-year franchise partner, is targeting further growth in the Jackson area and in the D’Iberville coastal region.

Founded in 1987 in Cleveland, Miss., Back Yard Burgers is a fast casual, better-burger concept that operates 56 locations (23-company owned and 33 franchised restaurants) in 12 states. For more information, visit
