About Mugshots Grill & Bar
Ron Savell and his partner met in college and worked side-by-side at a local eatery in Hattiesburg, MS. After their college graduation, they hopped on a plane to Hawaii. They worked at a local bar in Hawaii and often thought about their futures. They dreamed of owning their own restaurant, a place where everyone could enjoy great food and cold drinks in a lively sports vibe. On a wing and a prayer, and having little funds, they moved back to Hattiesburg, Mississippi, to do just that. Their family and friends gathered to work alongside the two young entrepreneurs to make their dream become a reality.
On January 10, 2004, Mugshots Grill & Bar was born. Mugshots originally began as a small dive bar in Hattiesburg, but eventually transformed into a well-known family sports grill and bar throughout Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, and Florida.
Preparing for Growth
In December of 2017, Ron decided to purchase the entire company from his partner with the vision of becoming the premier sports grill and bar in the South. Ron put all his focus on developing operating systems and infrastructure, building a solid leadership team, and gaining financial traction so that he could successfully franchise Mugshots and grow the business on a larger scale.
Since 2017, Ron and his company have done exactly that. Mugshots’ executive team has spent a lot of time on implementing systems to improve performance and developing a strong business acumen with their people and Franchise groups. “With a new view of the Mugshots landscape and much more confidence in our operations, we are now ready to begin Mugshots franchising 2.0,” says Ron. By no means is the company new to franchising.
Mugshots currently has 15 franchised locations with five franchise groups. Four of these five groups have been with Mugshots for over ten years.
