In 2014, they did it again, opening a second market stand called The Fizzy Bee. Inspired by Queen Bee Andee's desire to make sodas, the pair bought an Old Fashioned Soda Fountain. The Fountain was made in 1936, had to be shipped from West Virginia, and no longer had any working parts! After a complete overhaul, Soda Jerk Drew started making soda. Our syrups are made with fruit, herbs, barks, roots and organic sugar without preservatives, colorants, and additives.

OUR STORY

The Busy Bee’s own Chef Andrew began working in restaurants many years ago at a local hotel that would earn a “AAA” 4 Diamond and 3 Diamond status for its two restaurants during his tenure there, an honor held by only a small fraction of Chefs in the country. Throughout his years in the restaurant industry, Chef Drew worked in Fine Dining and studied the cuisines of the World. When his grandfather left him a small inheritance, the windfall gave Drew the capitol to open The Busy Bee. The Busy Bee is named for the ship Chef Drew's grandfather served on in the Navy during WWII, the USS Biloxi. The ship was the only one in the fleet to earn two nicknames, The Double Lucky for never losing a man in combat and The Busy Bee because it fought more battles than any other ship.

Just after The Busy Bee opened, Chef Drew asked his friend Andrea Linebaugh to go on a hike on a Wednesday and she asked him out the following Saturday! Soon they began working together. The relationship grew right along with business. Drew bestowed her with the title Queen Bee, even having it printed on business cards as a surprise.
