When Ugly Mug Marketing founder Wayne Mullins first started the business, he didn’t have an office. He was working out of the Hastings Hardback Cafe in the Hastings Entertainment Superstore that used to be on MacArthur Drive. 

“I would go there to work. We had small kids. I didn’t have an office. I couldn’t afford an office,” said Mullins at Ugly Mug’s 15th anniversary celebration held last Friday. 

Once he could, he leased a small space in the building behind Tamp & Grind Coffee House. 

Now, Ugly Mug occupies a much larger space on the corner of Desoto and 4th Streets in downtown Alexandria. It’s the colorful building with Ugly Mug’s mascot, a bright pink octopus with outstretched tentacles holding an umbrella and a megaphone.
