Mel's in Tampa closing??? Fri, 08/17/07 3:34 PM (permalink)
A friend just sent me a short blurb that Mel Lohn is looking to sell the business after 35 years. Anyone have any more info on this? Thanks.

    Yes, it is for sale. Below is a link to an article about it.

        I hope someone takes Mel's over and keeps it open. Great dogs near Busch Gardens.

            I love Mel's.
            a mandatory pit stop for me when I am in the area.

              That article was written a year ago. does anyone know if they sold the place? I went to their web site and everything looks the same.

                Mels has been for sale for at least 5 years. Wants too much money.
