Newk’s Eatery business was started in 2004 by Chris Newcomb, Don Newcomb, and Debra Bryson, the same team that built McAlister’s Deli. They opened the first Newk’s Eatery restaurant in Oxford, Mississippi, under the name “Newk’s Express Café”.
One year later, in 2005, they opened their first franchised location.
In 2013 the name of the restaurant was changed to “Newk’s Eatery” and a new, fresh design was implemented to their stores. However, their classic family recipes remained the same. That year they also opened another 14 locations.
Over time Newk’s Eatery received many awards and nominations. For example, in 2008 Restaurant Chains Magazine named this restaurant one of the “Top 10 New Restaurant Concepts” and in 2009, Inc. Magazine included Newk’s in its “Top 5000 Fastest Growing Companies” list. Also, in 2010, Nation’s Restaurant News named Newk’s in the Nation’s top “Growing Concepts” and in 2012 QSR Magazine named it one of the “Top 10 Best Franchises”.
Currently, there are more the one hundred-thirty Newk’s Eatery locations in seventeen states across the United States, including Texas, Colorado, Georgia, North Carolina, Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Florida.
Newk’s Eatery restaurants can be easily recognized by their décor with open kitchens and large round tables where breadstick crackers, toppings, and complementary condiments are placed.

Some of the most recommended menu items are the coconut cake, the crawfish macaroni, the ahi tuna salad, and the quinoa salads with kale. But there are many options for almost any diet, plus the prices are really good for the taste and quality of the food.
For example, a Spicy Shrimp pizza costs around $14, for the Cobb salad you will have to pay around $13, and for the Roast Beef sandwich, only $10. Also, a simple bowl of chicken noodle soup costs less than $10. Moreover, they offer kids’ meals that cost less than $9.
