What was formerly known as The Bee Spring Restaurant was reopened as The Bee at a ribbon cutting ceremony on December 14, 2021, hosted by the Edmonson County Chamber of Commerce. Owner Valina Page has worked for more than one owner at the restaurant as a cook since 2017, and says she is very excited to be reopening it as her own.
"I have always had the love and passion for this job, the customers, and the restaurant. I have always taken care of it as my own." She continued, "I opened The Bee as my own with the love and support from my husband, family, friends, and (former owner) Scott (Brooks)."
Page said she could not have done this without the support of her family, customers, and community.
Edmonson County Chamber of Commerce Director Greg Hudson encouraged the new owners of The Bee in their new endeavor and encouraged the community to help support it.
"The goal of the Chamber is to promote our local business community and we are proud to welcome another member into that," he said. "While this establishment has been here for many years, we are excited for the new owners and wish them the best in the direction they take this restaurant."
The restaurant, located at 7879 HWY 259N, in Bee Spring, is open daily and offers breakfast until 10:30am each day along with daily specials. They can be reached at 270-286-0222 and by their Facebook Page link here.
