ATLANTA (Aug. 11, 2014) — Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers will bring back selections from its original 1974 menu on Wednesday, Aug. 20 in a “Way Back Wednesday” celebration to mark the brand’s 40th anniversary.
Each of Mellow Mushroom’s locations nationwide will be offering 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 (Pabst Blue Ribbon) and $2.50 for a small cheese pizza.
The Mellow Mushroom in McKinney is located at 218 E. Louisiana St. in Historic Downtown McKinney. Their hours on Wednesday are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information call 972-548-2800.

Those without an Instagram account can upload their images to 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, craveable 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 unique, 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.
The core of Mellow Mushroom’s menu is its handcrafted, stone-baked pizza made with wheat flour and Appalachian spring water-based mellow dough; tomato sauce made from vine-ripened, hand-selected tomatoes picked within hours of harvest; and part-skim aged mozzarella with no preservatives.
