Honey Pot hosts ribbon ceremony
VALDOSTA – The Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the one-year anniversary of Honey Pot the Wax Spot.
Honey Pot the Wax Spot opened Aug. 15, 2020, appropriately honoring National Honey Bee Day, chamber representatives said in a statement. It is a walk-in only waxing salon, specializing in speed waxing. By offering walk-in only service, Honey Pot provides accommodations to a variety of lifestyles and busy people.
The business prides itself on using top-notch products to ensure the best results for each customer, chamber representatives said. Owner Stacie Pridgen and her team exclusively use natural, organic products. 
“This allows us to serve those even with the most sensitive skin,” Pridgen said.
Outside of quality products and service, Honey Pot’s goal is to provide an overall great experience and empower every customer, chamber representatives said. 
“As a female owned business, we understand the importance of a woman’s confidence,” Pridgen said.
“It is clear that their customers are receiving the experience Pridgen intended with the stellar feedback they have received in just one year,” chamber officials said. 
Honey Pot the Wax Spot was awarded The Valdosta Daily Times Best of South Georgia best waxing and best new business.
Despite opening in the peak of a global pandemic, Pridgen and her staff have earned success while managing to give back to the community and its mascot, the honey bee.
“Ten percent of our profits are donated to organizations that support bee conservation,” Pridgen said. 
The business has also participated in 20 community events, hosted 26 events, sponsored 36 organizations and joined in 78 collabs.
The one thing the pandemic did stop Honey Pot from doing was hosting a grand-opening ribbon-cutting ceremony, so the year wait made this celebration even sweeter. 
“It was everything I thought it would be,” Pridgen said.
For more information, contact Pridgen at (229)-262-1242 or visit 1595 Baytree Road.
The Chamber Ambassadors are able to celebrate businesses like Honey Pot the Wax Spot thanks to program sponsor Biomat USA, chamber representatives said.
