New students, residents and visitors will soon have a publication to make finding great food even easier. CollegeTown Cuisine is pleased to announce the Starkville Menu Guide -- a free, high-gloss collection of the area's best restaurants, in full-size magazine format. Over 8,500 copies will be made available in several venues across Starkville and the Mississippi State University campus. The inaugural edition is set to be distributed on August 17th, 2009.
“I think it’s a great idea,” said Jaynie Quave, a junior marketing major at Mississippi State. “When I first came to Starkville for school, I was always trying to find great places to eat. It would have been so much easier to find all of my local favorites.”
In addition to containing menus from participating restaurants, the guide will feature a convenient locator map, as well as several local writers’ perspectives on dining in Starkville.
Starkville Account Representative Brian Thorne says it’s all about "creating a win-win" for everyone.
“The Starkville Menu Guide has the potential to be the only food resource students and visitors would need -- not just a cluster of entrées and prices. The printed guide, with its online counter-part, gives the public plenty of ways to find food... not to mention unsurpassed exposure for restaurant owners and managers!”
The menu guide has been approved for delivery to all MSU dorms, ten local hotels, thirteen property managerial/apartment leasing offices, and will be available by mail -- free of charge. It will also be online as a printable Adobe PDF file.
“It’s simple,” says Thorne. “When you're new in town, the first thing to look for is food. You've got the traditional phone book, filled with everything from Architects to Zydeco Musicians; or you've got the Starkville Menu Guide, filled with menus, restaurants, and food. Which is the obvious place to look? I think the answer is pretty clear.”
