Asked what inspired him to open this Mellow, Jon responds, “About two years ago we decided to start a family, and at that time I was not familiar with Mellow. I overheard my pregnant wife planning a baby shopping day where she was prioritizing locations in Tampa and Orlando due to proximity to a Mellow Mushroom. As a scientist I was intrigued–what is Mellow Mushroom? Once we started down the mellow path, we knew that forever it would dominate our destiny. The local community has embraced our science fiction themed Mellow—prepare for transport.”
