South Surrey business offers drive-thru honey

BCB Honey Farms recently opened a drive-thru window.

It started with drive-thru fast food, graduated to drive-thru ATMs and now there’s drive-thru honey.

BCB Honey Farms recently built a drive-thru window for its small honey kiosk located at 4121 King George Blvd.

Owner Iman Tabari says the drive-thru honey window is likely the first in the world. The intention is to make it more convenient for regular customers, he added.

“They can drive up to the window, take their honey, drive around and go,” he said. “Usually the first time people need to go inside to get familiar with the different honey we have.”

Tabari started his company in 2003. He developed it into a commercial beekeeping farm with approximately 1,000 colonies. Most of the product is shipped overseas – mostly Germany.

He was approached by stores to sell in Canada, but preferred to sell it out of his warehouse.

About six months ago, he built the honey stand beside his warehouse.

“People love to go to the farm and buy. They like to know they’re buying straight from the source,” he said.
