In 1947 Lucy Jackson, a self-taught cook decided to own her own restaurant. While working on developing a name for the business, she received some uncommon inspiration from a couple of sources. First, while on a trip to California, she saw a picture of a bee on a large moving sign, and viewing it as a sign, decided to name her restaurant after it.
Shortly thereafter, she was moved to help an African missionary by providing a hot meal for her. People was recommended to go down to Busy Bee, Momma Lucy will feed you.
The New Owner Tracy Gates has taken over with much care and respect. We at Busy Bee Cafe pay homage to Ms. Lucy with a pin.
