Half baked – Mellow Mushroom confusion lingersSign on the door of the Mellow Mushroom, May 9. Photo by Dan Whisenhunt
The signs on the door of the restaurant aren’t much help.
On Friday, May 9, the sign on the door said, “Mellow is closed this afternoon. We hope to open later.”
On Thursday, May 8, the sign on the door said, “Closed due to interior progress.”
The announcement on the Facebook page still says the restaurant is closed. On May 8, the owner, Dave Kieffer, told Decaturish he is in discussions with the restaurant’s corporate office. On May 9, Kieffer said he was in a meeting when he answered the phone and promised to call back.
The corporate office Home Grown Industries, has declined to offer any additional information.
Mellowmushroom.com says the restaurant is “Temporarily Closed.”
Kieffer hasn’t officially said what the dispute with the corporate office is.
That’s the latest on the not-so Mellow Mushroom saga in Decatur. We’ll provide more information when it becomes available. There’s no guarantee it will make any sense, however.
