We'd like to introduce you to some outstanding members of our Mellow Family. This diverse group represents the spirit and drive it takes to be successful Mellow owners. Their stories are all different, but their goals are one and the same: to serve great pizza, to own a successful business and to have fun along the way. Here are their stories.

The Duke of Pizza
Myrtle Beach, SC

I fell in love with Mellow Mushroom in college. After I graduated, I went the corporate route for about eight years. Doing that, gave me the foundation to do a venture like this. But I never forgot about the good times I had at Mellow, and when I found out they were franchising, I really got excited, because I didn't like the idea of being a cookie cutter restaurant, I wanted to be diversified, I wanted to be unique. I sat my wife down, looked her in the eye, and said, ‘Honey, we can do this. We can be successful with this. I think we should pursue it.
