Known for its eclectic TCU location in Fort Worth, the Mellow Mushroom owners have chosen a spot near UT Arlington as its second home. Monday they broke ground at their new location at 200 North Center Street in Arlington.
Now the chain has expanded to serve a new college crowd. “The food is amazing,” says UTA student Erick Fernandez who recently enjoyed the Mushroom’s Austin location. “It will be nice to have one open here.”
Owners Kim and Montie Slawson both grew up in DFW. They spent six years to find the perfert spot on the corner of Front and Center street next to UTA's Arlington Music Hall.
"We cruised Cooper Street every Friday night for years," said Kim. "We've driven by this location our entire lives and are so proud to be making this our second home for Mellow Mushroom!"
The pizzeria is known for its creative menu including organic ingredients in a wide variety of pizzas, hoagies, salads and calzones. Their hand tossed crusts are baked on stone with a new gluten-free option. “We feel confident that customers will travel from all over the metroplex to experience our spring water dough,” said Slawson.
The Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers new Arlington location is slated to open in the early Fall.
