We had the good fortune of connecting with Sarah Woon and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sarah, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
It all started while at a local nail salon getting a manicure and pedicure with my daughter. As we were relaxing I watched as my daughter’s facial expressions showed so much joy and happiness. I know how much the experience of getting pampered and feeling extra special is something she loves. I remember asking her if she would like to have a “spa party” for her next birthday. Not surprised by what her answer was, I started doing some planning to make sure she had the best spa party for her and her friends. After looking at all the logistics of getting everyone to the salon, making sure appointments were scheduled, and looking at costs, the idea hit me, “what if there was a mobile luxury spa party business that could come to my house?” After a short brainstorming session, the wheels were set in motion and I was determined to create a one-of-kind ultimate luxury spa party experience for kids. Compiling a list of all the wonderful spa experiences my daughter loves most, Honey Bee Mobile Spa was born! This mobile luxury spa party business allows children to feel relaxed, bond with their friends and most of all have fun and in the comfort of their own home while getting some of their favorite spa treatments like manicures, pedicures, and/or facials. This relaxing, whimsical, ultimate kids’ spa celebration experience brings a new fun alternative to your typical birthday party at home. Most children aren’t fortunate enough to experience spa days as a regular lifestyle activity so now you can make their birthday even more special for her and her friends!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Being born and raised in Arizona; I love Arizona! I love everything it has to offer. When I have a good friend come to town depending on the weather, visiting Lake Pleasant or hiking Camelback Mountain is a must. This city has so many fun, healthy and eclectic restaurants to chose from. Some of my favorite go to spots are: The Henry for brunch, HopDoddy for a luscious burger and Fat Ox for a sleek modern Italian cuisine. During down time visiting Desert Nail Spa on Tatum is a must for a dip manicure and spa pedicure.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My shoutout is dedicated to my wonderful husband and two kids. My husband has been a huge mentor to me to start my own business. I am truly grateful that I have had the love and support from him since day one to get Honey Bee Mobile Spa started. My kids have also been a huge part and support to me throughout this journey. I wanted to show my kids that by starting my own business that they can achieve any goals and dreams they put their mind to. I am truly grateful to the community for the love and support they have given me from social media to the partnerships that I’ve established. Without all the support I would not have been able to continue to support our community and provide a fun and whimsical experience for minis!
