We had the good fortune of connecting with Mellonea Gleaton and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mellonea, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?

I was on my way to visit one of my best friends. Sitting in traffic on 85 near Midtown and I thought to myself, “why didn’t I pack two hookahs?” That was literally the moment I realized I had to start my business. Spending time with my friends and family has always been one of my favorite ways to past time. But when I bring out the hookahs, everything takes an even more thrilling turn! I wanted to provide that excitement for more people on a larger scale. It is my belief that flavorful hookahs have a very similar effect on social gatherings as delicious food does. It brings people together and elevates the experience.
The most important factor behind the success of Majestic Cloudz Hookah Catering and Rentals is definitely the outstanding customer service that we offer. Our goal is for everyone’s first pull of the hookah to be a surprising burst of flavors unlike any other hookah experience they’ve had before. We are courteous and always ready to help customers. We also enjoy educating clients that may have never tried hookah before. Suggesting unique and daring blends of flavors is one of our favorite acts of service for our clients and customers. “Taking Your Events to New Heights” is not only our slogan, It is was we strive to do every time we place a hookah on a table.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
For my fulltime, Monday through Friday position, I am a Care Coordinator and a Behavioral Health Coach. My career in the healthcare advocacy field began almost 15 years ago. For anyone that works in the healthcare industry, customer service is a large part of your role. I believe putting people first and tending to their needs can make all the difference in the client experience for any type of business.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I love to invite my out of town friends to visit during the Atlanta Wine Festivals. They are the absolute best! Great wines, nice music and just fun times. For dinner, I take my friends to Eclipse Di Luna in Buckhead. The tapas and cocktails are incredible! For night life fun, my favorite spot is Impulse Karaoke Lounge in Norcross. I love the atmosphere, wings, drinks and of course the hookahs!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d like to dedicate this shoutout to my family and best friends. Each of them have been in my corner encouraging, supporting and pushing me. Majestic Cloudz Hookah would not exist if it weren’t for each and every one of them.
