Christa Boaz has big plans for The Honey Do Service, a home improvement and repair company. She opened the business this week in the former Blandford’s Drive-In on Breckenridge Street.

Boaz grew up in Owensboro, but 3 years ago bought a place in the Smoky Mountains because she decided she wanted to live there. She found a job as the office manager for The Honey Do Service location in Sevierville, Tennessee.

“I sort of got a little homesick and decided I wanted to come back,” Boaz said. “I thought this business was booming and there was a need.”

So, she talked with her fiance and they contacted Brad Fluke, CEO of the company, and he came down to Owensboro. Boaz said Fluke has been here twice and loves it, adding he said it was the best fit for the next location.

Boaz said it was somewhat difficult to find a building. She didn’t want to go on KY 54, and while looking for a place elsewhere she kept coming across the empty building at 2125 Breckenridge Street that used to house Blandford’s. 

She said they finally figured out who owned the space and that while he was hesitant to lease the building out at first, he agreed once Boaz said she had signed a 10-year contract with the company and was willing to sign a 5-year lease with an option to buy or redo the contract at the end of that term.

Boaz said the response has already been great. They started taking requests for estimates on Tuesday and already have one bathroom remodel lined up. They also had an open house Thursday, and Boaz estimated they had about 100 people show up.

She said her business can handle just about any home project.

“We offer anything from simply hanging pictures on a wall all the way up to total remodel,” she said. “No job is too small, no job is too big. We do everything from electrical, plumbing, drywall, painting, concrete.”

Boaz said her staff are called master skilled craftsmen. She said in order to be hired, they must have at least 5 years of experience as a handyman and have their own tools. Boaz said she employs a mix of skilled and certified workers, with some being more specialized in certain areas such as plumbing or electrical.

Boaz said she currently has four people on staff but is looking for more. She said she’ll continue to hire more as the company grows.

The business will be open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will be closed on the weekends.

Anyone wanting an estimate can call 270-478-1089, visit the building at 2125 Breckenridge Street, or go to

Boaz is confident the business will be valuable to the community and will continue to grow.

“We’re here in Owensboro to stay,” she said. “We’re gonna be the number one handyman remodeler in Owensboro.”
