About Us

Our story began one night in 2018 when we were throwing back IPAs and chowing on a mouthwatering Buffalo chicken pizza. Feeling our waistlines expand with each bite, the conversation turned to us voicing our frustrations with the lack of on-the-go, healthy food in our community.

That gave us an idea.

Foodies on A Mission

Not about to give up our foodie lifestyle—but also wanting some balance with healthier options—and knowing there were a whole lot of people out there feeling the exact same as us, THORN + ROOTS was born. Brandon ditched his corporate career. 

Allen put his entrepreneurial brain to work. And together, we began this crazy journey. We didn’t want you walking away from those mouthwatering pizzas or hoppy pale ales. We just wanted to offer you—the foodie needing balance, the couch potato craving greens, the parent on the go, or the CrossFitter in training—healthier, on-the-go options. And it just so happens, nothing washes a blue-cheese burger down better than Berry Powerful Smoothie. 

Trust us… we do it all the time.

Our mission was simple. We wanted to deliver top quality locally sourced, organic when possible, “who cares if it’s healthy, we just love the way it tastes,” food and drink into as many hands as possible in our community, which is exactly what we did…

And like that Lizzo song, you can’t get enough of, our eateries quickly became a staple for locals needing healthier, on-the-go options for their busy lives.

We hope you join us, and see why we’re – THE THORN IN THE SIDE OF WHAT HEALTHY TASTES
