Just three months after expanding into a brick-and-mortar space on N. Mississippi, the Honey Pot Bakery has abruptly shuttered both its bakery and its food cart location, in SE Belmont's Good Food Here pod. Co-owner Kelly Delaney, who joined the Honey Pot team during the expansion, confirmed the closure in a statement:
The Honey Pot Bakery has closed its doors at the bakery and cart effective today. We have loved serving our customers and their shared passion for pie! We were so fortunate to give it a go, but in the end the business wasn't viable going forward. We chose to close our doors while we could still fulfill any obligations to our fellow small business owners. Thank you for your support.
The Honey Pot originally launched in Bend, moving to Portland in spring 2012 with baker , Mary Casanave Sheridan at the helm. A Facebook message describes the closure as "devastating" but provides no further details, other than "I hope to return one day soon in some form and continue to share my passion and vision with all of you."
