Their playful minds were reflected on how their store came to be out of an old liquor store in Spring Street, which was located near Georgia. And through time, more and more customers are coming in their store. Given the popularity, they started the idea of branching out Mellow Mushroom by accepting franchisees. In 1978, Mellow Mushroom is available for interested franchisees nationwide.
