Company History

Owners Ron Savell and Chris McDonald are friends who met while attending college. True Southern Gentlemen and side-by-side bartenders at a local eatery, they had BIG DREAMS. Their first big dream was to travel to Hawaii to work and to have a little fun. After college graduation, they hopped on an airplane on January 2, 2003. They were traveling to Hawaii - to Wakiki. Here they worked Side-By-Side always dreaming of the future. One day, while relaxing at the beach on their day off, they dreamed of owning their own place, a place all would be happy coming to for Great Food, Good Drinks, and a Fun Atmosphere - at a fair price!

Ron and Chris opened Mugshots #1 in Hattiesburg, MS on January 10, 2004. Having little funds, their family and friends gathered to work alongside Ron and Chris, and in no time the dream was a reality. They worked around the clock for ten straight days renovating an old building into their first endeavor. On opening day Father Tommy conferred the Irish Blessing upon Ron and Chris' grill and bar, and this sealed their dream. MUGSHOTS WAS BORN. Ron and Chris thanked their friends and family by naming appetizers, burgers, salads, and desserts after them. They also thanked their patrons by putting their pictures on the walls showing off their Mugshots memorabilia all over the world. But, after all is said and done, It Is All About The Bun. Sink your teeth into this signature sandwich detail and you will see what they mean.
