Founders Story

Honey Bees - Japanese/Korean Restaurant, Juice Bar & Ice Cream Parlor


Sonia Park and Troy Lawrence met on the streets of Montreal, a Meca for both Cultural and Food Diversity. Little did they know that 22 years later, they would be happily married, with 2 wonderful children, and operating, together, Honey Bees, “An Inclusive Cultural Food Beehive”, in Yarmouth Nova Scotia…WOW!


Troy was born in Halifax, raised in Yarmouth, is bilingual and has a Business degree from Acadia University which explains why his entrepreneurial drive is so high.


Sonia was born in South Korea, lived in South America, and later immigrated to Montreal Canada. This worldly experience and her parents being business owners, contributed to Sonia's heightened interpersonal skills, and her ability to speak 5 different languages.


As diverse as their backgrounds may be, one thing is for sure, the pairing is magic. Their passion for life and inviting personalities are evident to anyone who has dawned their establishment. The menu is inspired by Sonia’s Asian upbringing, a mouth-watering selection of both Japanese and Korean cuisine. Sonia and her Brother, “Celebrity & Executive Chef Antonio Park”, have been involved in the Hospitality industry for over 2 decades. Chef Antonio Park's influence, married with Sonia’s diverse cultural expertise at all operational levels, and Troy’s Entrepreneurship, elevates the experience.


In 2024 stay tuned for our Korean BBQ and other traditional Korean food options.
