Salvadore told NEWS10 in September that he started growing his mullet in 2018. “You gotta have the rocks to grow the locks,” said Salvadore. “I didn’t know it was gonna end up being a mullet at the time. My step-brother for Christmas got me tickets to the Daytona 500. Figured it would be a perfect time to start growing one.”

“You don’t choose the mullet, the mullet chooses you,” said Salvadore. He is also the owner and operator of Salvadore Firewood Company based in Saratoga, and owns the Landscape Authority LLC.
