Only months after the coffee and donut chain opened the doors to their Main Street location in Wilmington, a "For Lease" sign hangs above the front entrance of the store. 

Honey Dew Donuts has confirmed the location is closed, but it remains unclear whether or not the company will reopen in Wilmington. 

In an email to Wilmington Patch, representatives for Honey Dew Donuts said they "hope to have the Wilmington location open again soon."

Honey Dew did not provide information concerning whether they would reopen at the same 337 Main St. location.

While the reason for the closing remains unclear, franchisee of the Wilmington location Raffi Keikian tweeted the following message on the closing of Honey Dew Donuts:

"Honey dew donuts in Wilmington will be closed for good."

Keikian followed up with another tweet:

"To all investors and entrepreneurs stay away from Honey Dew Donuts franchise I'm speaking from experience I was franchisee."

I am a Honey Dew Fan but it think it is hard for them to break into the North Shore given the amount of Dunkin Donuts in each town.

Kudos to Donna's Donuts in Tewksbury. By serving good product at good prices, they have beat out the Dunkin Donut stigma. Now I wonder how long Heavenly Donuts in Wilmington is going to last. I hope they do, because I hate to see a small time business owner go under do to big corporation bullying.
