Tom with Pom during his serving training

Owner Tom Woodard fell in love with the food, atmosphere, and vibe of Pom Pom’s Teahouse & Sandwicheria while living in Orlando.  As Pom Pom’s regular over several years, he became good friends with owner Pom Moongauklang. During that time, Tom expressed his interest in opening a Pom Pom’s Teahouse & Sandwicheria in St. Pete.  His dream of Pom Pom’s ownership came to fruition when he retired after a long career as an Orange County Sheriff Deputy and purchased the first Pom Pom’s franchise.
