There’s Advertising, and then There’s Advertising: Mellow Mushroom & National Parks

Mellow Mushroom Ad Car

Mellow Mushroom is hands-down my favorite pizza place. Not only is the pizza the yummiest around, the decor in each restaurant is unique.

This retro station wagon with the national park stamps plastered on it is almost a traffic-stopper. The canoe strapped on top ups the cool factor even more.

I thought it was funny that Mellow Mushroom would choose a national park theme for their Huntsville, Alabama, restaurant because I didn’t think we had any national parks, but we do have one and a few other places run by The National Park Service.

Horseshoe Bend National Military Park, according to NPS, “is one of the four dedicated ‘War of 1812’ parks in the NPS system.”

Also run by NPS:

Russell Cave National Monument

Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site

Tuskegee Institute National Historic Site

Little River Canyon National Preserve

With these NPS places in Alabama, I guess Mellow Mushroom got it right by picking a national park theme for the Huntsville restaurant.

Using the car for advertising and serving delicious pizza in an NPS-themed restaurant is a most wonderful combination.

Did I mention they use several Bison in their decor?
