Hard to believe that after 18 years of selling pizza in Tuscaloosa, The Mellow Mushroom will be closing it's doors at the end of August.
The Atlanta-based franchise was not able to negotiate a new contract with their landlord before the lease ends in August.
“Unfortunately, our landlord raised the rent so much we could not stay in that location and continue to make money” Kreider said. “We love the Tuscaloosa market and we had every intention to stay there, but rent that high made it untenable as an ongoing business prospect.”
Tuscaloosa’s Mellow Mushroom opened in 1999 on the corner of 23rd Street and University Boulevard.
