Messenger Coffee delays opening at Prairiefire due to supply chain shortages, report says

Messenger Coffee Co. has delayed the opening of its newest location at Prairiefire in Overland Park as supply chain shortages slow down construction, the Kansas City Business Journal reports. The new café will be similar to the company's flagship location on Grand Boulevard in Kansas City, Mo., officials say, and will set along 135th Street between a new Andy's Frozen Custard and Chicken N Pickle.

It looks like Blue Valley area residents wanting a caffeinated pick-me-up are going to have to wait a little longer to get their own cup of slow-roasted coffee from Messenger Coffee Co.

The popular Kansas City-based coffee company that runs more than a half-dozen coffee shops in the metro already, was supposed to open its fourth Kansas City metro location at Prairiefire by last fall.

However, according to a new report in the Kansas City Business Journal, due to supply chain shortages on essential building pieces and longer lead times, the Prairiefire location won’t be open until later this year, FairWave Holdings CEO Dan Trott.
