Meet Ben Stix; Owner of The BE-Hive. 

The BE-Hive was born from a group of friends in a band called Born Empty. While living together, the band quickly stumbled upon “BE” as a very appropriate abbreviation to describe the mindset of all the members. ‘Just BE’ was the approach to their lives, so it was only fitting to call the house in which they lived, ‘The BE-Hive’. You’ll love the evolution of how a group of friends turned their vegan passion into a sustainable business.

The BE-Hive Owner Ben Stix highlights and discusses: 

  • How the BE-Hive strives to make plant-based eating easier and more accessible through its products, events, and catering.
  • The community has always been the backbone of their business and how working together continues to positively impact their community. 
  • How covid and business expenses have impacted the supply chain plus the importance of listening to the customer to see what works for your business.
