Queen Bee

Record #:
Roxanne Quimby started Burt's Bees with Burt Shavitz fifteen years ago in Maine, transforming a roadside honey stand into a multimillion dollar business. Finding the state of Maine unresponsive to their request for business help, they moved the company to North Carolina in 1994. Burt's Bees makes over 150 all-natural products, including candles, lip balm, and lotions. Recently moved to new quarters in the Research Triangle Park, Burt's Bees will gross $20 million in 2000.
