Mugshots was born when two college buddies with a dream moved to Hawaii. While tending bar on Waikiki beach they dreamed of owning their own place where customers and employees would always be "Havin a Good Time." In 2004, with hard work and plenty support from friends and family, the guys made their dream a reality. Mugshots #1 opened in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Short on cash, but full of gratitude, they showed their thanks by naming appetizers, burgers, and menu items after family and friends and decorating the walls with pictures of their customers.
Today, founders Chris McDonald and Ron Savell continue working the dream. The Mugshots values of "Havin A Good Time" and "Making Life Grand" by giving back to the community are the foundation of every location.
