Update 05/16/2019: Check out this article about the new owners from Richmond Biz Sense:
Update 05/14/2019: So there is a Reddit post that was shared in the comments. Reddit user “I_Got_A_Truck” says he’s the new owner of Captain Buzzy’s! You can see an excerpt from the conversation below. We’ve also reached out to the new owner for some additional info and will post updates here.
I’m not out to set the world on fire with any new crazy ideas. I want to start small: keep the shop clean and keep the food and coffee in stock. After that, we’ll see how it goes.
Any questions, please ask!
Edit: oh yeah, the reopening. We are shooting for the second weekend of June. We were hoping June 1, but the floors are going to take 8 days. Looks like we are going to have to buy some new equipment also, so that’ll take a bit of time too.
Original Story: So we’ve had a lot of questions about the state of Captain Buzzy’s from the neighborhood and quite a bit of speculation:
- There were some rumors that it changed owners, which we haven’t been able to verify.
- There is also a sign on the door saying it’s closed for renovations that will start May 5th.
- Lastly, we have this story by NBC 12 saying they were cited for health code violations.
We also tried to reach out by phone and email. Emails bounce back and the phone just rings. I also reached out via Facebook and haven’t heard back. Does anyone have any solid info about this?
We’ll update as we find out more.
