Founder Austin Ray will open the chain’s fifth location in the West Point development, located off Interstate-24 at New Salem Road, about a block from Costco.

“I have many special memories of my grandmother’s visit here,” Ray said.

Murfreesboro’s fast-growing economy provided the perfect location to build the next expansion project. Building it right next to a highway will bring even more brand visibility and the location is just 10 minutes from downtown Murfreesboro.

Specific restaurant details, including estimated opening, will be released at a later date.

Customers can expect a laid-back atmosphere like other MLRose locations have established.

Diners can pair their beer with artisan burgers, waffle fries, nachos and wings, handmade sandwiches and salads, happy hour, late-night drinks and food, and weekend brunch. end.
