Mellow Mushroom Celebrates 40 Years with 1974 Throwback Menu
Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers will bring back selections from its original 1974 menu on Aug. 20 in a “Way Back Wednesday” celebration to mark the brand’s 40th anniversary.
Each of Mellow Mushroom’s locations nationwide will offer a small cheese pizza, Coke products, and select beers at their 1974 prices to mark nearly half a century since the first Mellow opened on Spring Street in Atlanta. The menu selections will be 30 cents for Coke products; 75 cents for Michelob, Budweiser, or PBR; and $2.50 for a small cheese pizza.
Mellow Mushroom will also host a contest for customers to win a trip to Amsterdam for two. Customers will be able to pose in-store with a backdrop of the first Mellow Mushroom location and post it to Instagram with the hashtag #40YearsBaked to enter. Those without an Instagram account can upload their images to www.40yearsbaked.com
Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers has come a long way from its humble roots, born out of a single pizza shop in Atlanta during the freewheeling hippie culture of 1974. The founders had a simple dream: to make the most delicious slice of pizza on the planet.
Mellow Mushroom has recently expanded to more than 170 locations in 18 states, while retaining its mission of serving unparalleled pizza and cold craft beer in an unforgettable environment. Each Mellow Mushroom location is a one-of-a-kind design, with the same core menu. Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers is opening new restaurants throughout the country, including recent and upcoming launches in Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Dallas, Denver, New Orleans, Orlando, and Miami.
