Mellow Mushroom says it plans to open its new location in downtown Ocala next month.
On Monday, the company announced that it is “coming Shroom” and is gearing up for its “much-anticipated grand opening” this December, according to a statement made through social media.
The company says that it will release the exact date of its grand opening soon.
The restaurant is currently hiring for all positions and is hosting interviews Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. To inquire about a job, visit the restaurant’s job openings list.
Although Mellow Mushroom has been several years in the making, steady progress has been made at the restaurant over the past several weeks. Crews have been seen making final preparations inside and out at the new restaurant, which is located at 2 SW Fort King Street, across from the Marion Theatre.
In late October, signs were erected on the exterior of the building.
At the end of September, Benmar Construction provided a brief update on the interior of the restaurant.
Over that time, the city’s downtown area has seen dramatic changes to traffic patterns and businesses. That includes the additions of multiple restaurants, bars, boutiques, and nearby housing units.
