MHRA unveils ‘Dine Out Mississippi’

The Mississippi Hospitality & Restaurant Association has announced its plans to give something back to Mississippi restaurant consumers through the “Dine Out Mississippi” campaign.

Mississippi is recognized for having a vibrant and diverse culinary scene. This summer, consumers will be able to receive a rebate for dining at MHRA member locations.

“From July 1 through Aug. 31, we encourage consumers to save their receipts when they dine at any and all MHRA locations,” said Mike Cashion, the executive director of the MHRA. “Once they have collected at least $100 in receipts, they can send them to our office and we will issue them a gift certificate for 10 percent of their food and beverage purchases. Those gift certificates can then be used at MHRA locations. It is our way of saying thank you to our valued and loyal guests as well as showcase the members of the MHRA family.”
