National franchise Mellow Mushroom continues to dominate the Lowcountry pizza scene with a new store opening in North Charleston this month. Co-owners Michael Shemtov, Johnny Hudgins, and Josh Broome started with a location on King Street in 2001 and have grown their Holy City pizza empire to West Ashley, Summerville, and now North Charleston. While Mellow Mushroom may be a national franchise, the group always focuses on keeping the stores unique to the separate locations with one-of-a-kind artwork, whimsical details, and local craft beers.
The Mellow Mushroom located at 4855 Tanger Outlet Blvd. hosts a grand opening on May 23, starting at 11:00 a.m.
