A new mystery grocery store is coming to the area.
An official building permit pulled from the city has confirmed the tenant name to be "Mendel Grocery" who will be joining the Daniels Road Business Park project, which we told you about here.
“Mendel” is a name that Amazon has used in planning documents for Amazon Fresh stores in Washington, D.C., and other markets.
Amazon Fresh is an online and physical grocery store that offers "low prices on everyday favorites, plus free same-day delivery and pickup in select locations for Prime members," according to the organization's website.
"Amazon Fresh is a new grocery store designed from the ground up to offer a seamless grocery shopping experience," Amazon says on its website. "Customers will find a wide assortment of national brands and high-quality produce, meat and seafood; plus, our culinary team offers customers a range of delicious prepared foods made fresh in store, every day."
Amazon Fresh currently has more than 40 locations throughout the country, including in California, Illinois, Virginia, Maryland and New York.

Construction is well underway on the Daniels Road Business Park project, and representatives from Intram Investments Inc. said the company is on schedule to deliver the project to the tenants early in the second quarter of 2023.
The project, at 1200 Daniels Road and 1211 Winter Garden Vineland Road, is owned by Daniels 4 Partners LLC, an affiliate of Intram, which is supervising the development of the project.
“We are building a first-class retail shopping center at the corner that will be anchored by a national grocer not presently in the Orlando market,” Intram Executive Vice President Randy Hodge said. “We expect that the remaining retail spaces in the center will be occupied by a mix of restaurants and specialty retailers.”
Winter Garden Community Development Director Steve Pash said the request is to develop the property with a two-phase plan. However, the request approved by the City Commission in April was for the review of the first phase only.
Phase 1 consists of a 53,344-square-foot multi-tenant commercial building with a 40,344-square-foot grocery store and 13,000 square feet of other retail space.
