JACKSON, Miss. —Excitement is growing in Metro Jackson over The District at Eastover’s announcement of three new businesses opening in the development this month. Fine & Dandy, an upscale burger and cocktails concept is now open; Orangetheory Fitness will open December 19th; and Freshii is scheduled to open later this month.
“Each of these additions contribute to the community and lifestyle aspect of the development, reinforcing our vision for The District as a place to live, shop, dine, work and play,” said Breck Hines, co-developer of The District at Eastover. “It’s been great to see the energy grow in The District with each opening.”
These businesses join an impressive lineup of others including BankPlus, Beckham Jewelry, Cantina Laredo, Origin Bank, and Results Physiotherapy. Other cornerstone developments in The District at Eastover are the One Eastover Center office building, the Residence Inn by Marriott, The BankPlus Building, and The District Lofts.
“Now, within one dense, walkable area we have three open restaurants and one of the nation’s most popular fitness concepts within steps of each other, with additional retail as well as the state’s first food hall to follow,” said co-developer, Ted Duckworth. “Our idea for a mixed-use, lifestyle destination in Jackson continues to come to fruition with each new business.”
Fine & Dandy
Fine & Dandy is now open in its prime location in the heart of The District, with outdoor patio seating adjacent to The District’s common green space, The District Green. The restaurant is an innovative rendition of the All-American burger joint and is the first concept by Jackson-based Miller Hospitality. Fine & Dandy serves whimsical – and often humorous – menus by James Beard-nominated executive chef and culinary director, Jesse Houston. Alongside Houston’s thoughtful menus, Fine & Dandy offers a refined sense of hospitality executed by Hospitality Director Marisa Marino and a curated beverage program by Jonathan Webb.
"We fell in love with the District, way before we even knew what the restaurant was going to be,” said Fine & Dandy owner, Ray-Scott Miller. “And now, we believe our restaurant and the development work together to enhance quality of life in the area. With the creativity and flavor of the food coming out of Jesse Houston’s kitchen, the detailed hospitality delivered by Marisa Marino and the quality of the bar program executed by Jonathan Webb, the District at Eastover really does enhance the hard work from these talented people. My favorite seat in the house is at the bar, looking out at the District Green through our opened bar windows to the blue fountains at night."
Freshii, one of the fastest growing health and wellness brands, is on a mission to change the way the world eats by making nutritious food convenient and affordable to all. Continuing this mission, Freshii will soon be fueling guests in the District at Eastover.
“I am really excited to make healthy food easily accessible to the Jackson area in partnership with The District,” said John Newcomb, owner of Freshii’s Jackson location. “Around every corner in Jackson you can find burgers, pizzas and fried food. Freshii wants to be that bright red apple you reach for instead of a candy bar or bag of chips. Mississippi gets a bad rap nationally when it comes to eating healthy and Freshii is here to help offer a better alternative for those interested in a healthier lifestyle.”
Freshii is famous for offering an innovative menu of nutritious meal options made with high-quality ingredients like kale and quinoa. With its diverse and completely customizable menu of breakfast, soups, salads, wraps, bowls, burritos, frozen yogurt, juices and smoothies, Freshii
caters to every dietary and taste preference. Guests can energize with favorites like the Pangoa Bowl, a crave-able mix of brown rice, avocado, aged cheddar, cherry tomatoes, black beans, corn, cilantro and topped with a fiery BBQ sauce; or the Oaxaca Bowl where a meal is donated to a child in need with each purchase.
Orangetheory® Fitness, the scientifically-backed and fast-growing fitness franchise, announced their location in The District at Eastover will open December 19th. With four studios open in the state and several in development, the brand will continue to target the Mississippi area for expansion.
Owned and operated by EPOC Fitness Venture II LLC, the new studio will celebrate its grand opening with a VIP party on Saturday, December 16th, at 10 a.m., and will officially open to the public on Tuesday, December 19th, with classes starting at 5 a.m.
“We are passionate about health and wellness and are excited to bring Orangetheory Fitness to our community,” said Dock Daniel, Orangetheory Fitness Jackson franchisee. “We can’t wait for Jackson residents to become part of the Orangetheory family and start seeing results from the unique and high-energy workouts.”
