The unique culture that I've found here is a quirky family of its own - a bunch of hard-working individuals who strive to provide the best training possible. We believe that we set an industry standard, and in setting that bar, we are setting you up for success. Hospitality goes beyond what we offer our guests, it goes to what we offer our own.

- Sarah A.


At Tupelo, I've realized I've become responsible for my own success as well as the culture of the business. We act responsibly and independently, making good decisions for the company and each other. In doing so, we all win.

We give our team members space to do new and innovative things. We look to them in aspects of hospitality and service for their input. I went into management with Tupelo because I could have the freedom to be creative with my approach to team members.

Who We Are

We are rooted in the Mountain South and believe in delivering Southern cuisine that is honest, fresh, scratch-made, and creative. Our food and drink also reflect the New South and the culinary influence of new Southerners who are bringing their distinctive cuisines to our region.

Being a good neighbor has always been a core tenet of Tupelo Honey’s vision. We have donated over 10,000 service hours to our team members’ volunteer efforts within their cities.

We believe great food, great people, and great workplaces not only build winning companies but also create better communities.
