Mike and Linda LaDow opened Cocoon's Deli on County Road 30A in Seagrove in March 1992 when there was no place to eat in that area but Bruno's Pizza and Seagrove Village Market.

After 21 years of serving the community, the LaDows have sold the property to neighbors Kevin and Nicole McKee, owners of Big Fish Bike Rentals. The McKees plan to keep the deli open and move their bike rental business there also.

The McKees moved from Memphis to Seagrove in 2000 after vacationing there in 1999 and opened Big Fish Bike Rentals in 2001.

"1999 was our first time on 30A," said Nicole. "When we returned to Memphis , Kevin said we need to move there. I said he was crazy, but we sold our condo in Memphis and moved."

Through the years the McKees have enjoyed eating at Cocoons and loved his biscuits and gravy, sandwiches, shrimp salad, and of course, his famous smoked tuna dip.

"I know a lot of locals don't want to see it go, so, we will do everything we can to keep it going," said Nicole.

Nicole said she wants to keep some of Mike's best selling dishes and plans to add a few of her own from Memphis .
