A man who tried to introduce the bikini barista concept to Riviera Beach in Florida’s Palm Beach County has shuttered Bikinii Coffee after less than a month in business.

It is not clear which was more unprepared for the retail operation, the Riviera Beach market or owner Ray Webber:
“Yes I have closed and will have equipment auction March 19 (Tuesday). I came 2 realize after 2 weeks I am not cut out 4 food service industry. 2 time consuming,” Webber told the Broward Palm Beach New Times in an email.
