Steak 'N Shake is slated to open in August on Mississippi State University's campus.  


The fast food restaurant will replace the Burger King on campus located at Robert's Hall at 75 B.S. Hood Road.  


Burger King, which is typically closed for summer hours, has officially closed down and renovations are underway for Steak 'N Shake.  


Steak 'N Shake was founded in 1934 in Illinois and now has more than 550 locations nation-wide. Scheduled to open when students return in August, this is Mississippi's fifth location. The restaurant offers hamburgers, hot dogs, French fries and a variety of milkshakes.  


Regina Hyatt, vice president of student affairs at MSU, said the campus polled students on new eateries and Steak 'N Shake led the vote.  


"We're very excited about the new concept," Hyatt said. "This offers students a top choice and another retail location on campus."  


A Steak 'N Shake representative could not be reached before press time today.  


In Columbus, a new meal replacement stop is set to open Saturday.  


Columbus Nutrition, located at 2020 Hwy. 45, is a sister club to Starkville Nutrition which opened last year. Columbus Nutrition, owned by Luke and Avery Adkins, will offer healthy protein meal replacement shakes, as well as loaded and herbal teas.  


It will be open this Saturday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., and Monday through Friday 7 a.m.-2 p.m. 


Columbus has added a new barber to the scene.  


Major League Barbers, owned by Marvis Owens, opened at 2014 Hwy. 45 N. last Tuesday.  


Owens wanted to open a barber shop with affordable cuts and smaller wait times. Tuesday's through Thursday, MLB offers a $5 child haircut with an adult cut that costs $15.  


"I wanted to have an affordable haircut, especially for children," Owens said. "I know I don't like spending $15 on a kid's haircut."  


MLB, named after Owens' son, is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome, but customers can call to schedule appointments.
