Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers

With Little Rock being the busy capital of Arkansas along with the steady growth and unique atmosphere of this community, we knew we had the perfect location.

Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers will make its debut in Little Rock on Monday, June 17, at 16103 Chenal Parkway, Suite 900, located next to the Kroger Marketplace.

Kevin and Jennifer Kestner and Chris and Katie Elkins, owners of Mellow Mushroom Little Rock, are thrilled to bring Mellow to town. “With Little Rock being the busy capital of Arkansas along with the steady growth and unique atmosphere of this community, we knew we had the perfect location,” states Kevin. “Little Rock has always been a special place for us, and with Mellow’s variety of food and beverage choices, we knew it was meant to be.”

The menu features a variety of handcrafted pizzas, hoagies, salads, calzones and appetizers. In order to make sure that every diner’s needs are met, selections for vegetarians, vegans, kids and gluten-free options are also available. Mellow Mushroom focuses on local ownership and operation as the best way to serve the customer and the local community and at the same time, to convey the culture of the brand. As part of this philosophy, every new Mellow location hatches with a completely unique look and feel.

The Little Rock interior is a visual treat of color, shape and composition. From the dancing Fun Guys in the mural atop the pizza tossing window to the unique space-dividing mushroom cap, this Mellow is unique in many ways. Unwind in the ‘land of dreams’ backlit bar complete with a sculpted moon, floating glass shelves and the tree of life, the leaves of which remind us of Mellow through music, lyrics and imagery.

Other features include the curbside lounge adjacent to the patio, a five-foot stained glass chandelier hanging in the base building entry arch, floating clouds in the dining room made from vintage doors and a super-sized psychedelic homage to the Arkansas man himself, Johnny Cash.
