Located at 2093 East Pass Road, Suite C Gulfport, MS 39507, the area’s new dining on-the-go hotspot opens its doors at 11 a.m. and will be giving away free mac and cheese for one year to their first ten guests who purchase. 

“It’s really exciting to open our first location in Mississippi and bring our beloved classic menu offerings to the Gulfport community,” says Steve Giordanella, the CEO and Chairman of I Heart Mac & Cheese. “Expanding the brand and watching people fall in love with this concept that celebrates the childhood classics always makes us very happy and proud. We look forward to Gulfport’s success, as we continue to introduce new locations throughout the USA.” 

Serving up a variety of health-conscious bases including quinoa, broccoli, cauliflower, gluten-free pasta, plant-based protein, and dairy-free alternatives, as well as an extensive array of traditional mac & cheese and sandwich options, South Florida-based I Heart Mac & Cheese is a popular concept rapidly expanding across the United States.
