Coffee drinkers stopping at Honeybee Coffee & Brewery, 10716 Kingston Pike in Farragut, have found the doors closed and an “indefinitely closed” note and a news story taped to the glass of the front door entrance. The note reads: “Honeybee will be closed indefinitely as we undertake the important task of hiring full-time, trained professionals to serve you better. We are committed to ensuring that our team is highly qualified and dedicated to providing you with the exceptional service and quality you deserve. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding and patience during this time. Thank you for your continued support. — Honeybee management.”

The Farragut location is one of the company’s two stores that temporarily closed. The other is located in West Town Mall. According to a media report June 24, the company posted on Facebook “it was temporarily closing its locations in (Farragut) and at West Town Mall before reopening ‘better and bolder’ by July 16.” However, news reports indicated “behind-the-scenes” chaos with staff prompting the closures.

Meanwhile, Honeybee locations in South Knoxville and Sevierville have remained open.
