Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers will open its doors in Southern Pines, N.C., May 16.
The new unit is owned by the Craven and Dunahay families.
"We wanted to open up Mellow in Southern Pines for a few reasons. We are absolutely passionate about the quality food of Mellow Mushroom. We are long time residents and our families go back generations within the Sandhills area, and we wanted to take the opportunity to bring a business to the community," they said in a joint statement.
The latest Mellow Mushroom features a variety of pizzas, hoagies, salads, calzones, appetizers, vegan options and a gluten-free crust. This Mellow is in a 40-year-old recycled building and will feature unique artwork.
It also will host trivia, drink and draw, live music, comedy nights, corn hole and a beer club with 100 craft beers available.
