Mellow Mushroom Pizza was founded in Atlanta, Georgia in 1974. For over 40 years, Mellow Mushroom has been serving up fresh, stone-baked pizzas in an eclectic, art-filled, and family-friendly environment. Each Mellow is locally owned and operated and provides a unique feel focused around great customer service and high-quality food. The Mellow Mushroom in Bristol, Virginia opened in 2011. The franchise has recently undergone a transition to new management back in April, while remaining true to the original philosophy of the company. Mellow Mushroom’s philosophy is to “provide delicious food in a fun and creative environment.” They strive to create an elevated dining experience by providing high quality pizza. Whether it is the dough, sauce, or meat, the company provides the best possible ingredients to create their signature pizza.
Mellow Mushroom’s dough is created by using high protein, unbleached wheat flour, Appalachian spring water, and no refined white sugar. Their signature sauce is produced using vine-ripened, hand-selected tomatoes mixed with a blend of herbs and spices without any additives or preservatives. Their selection of meats are 100% all-natural, meaning no additives, preservatives, hormones, or steroids. The famous brown pizza box is “the greenest pizza box in the country.” It has a negative carbon footprint and is made from 100% recycled material. They also source 100% recycled products in their restaurants, including napkins, paper towels, and tissues. If you have dietary restrictions, you can rest easy at Mellow.
