Introducing Good Roots!

We expanded Ms. Julie’s and shifted our business model. This new approach extends beyond vegan comfort food to offer something new. Many of the recipes are MJ originals, but we reopened with this new model under the new name of “Good Roots”.

What has changed?

  • We have a new name. It represents our commitment to 100% plant-based foods that are healthy and delicious.
  • We have a new menu. Many of Ms. Julie’s original recipes and favorite products are being added to brand new recipes.
  • We have a new business model: convenient takeout, grab-n-go, and delivery options from the 2027 Prep Kitchen.
  • We have a new location: The 2027 Prep Kitchen is at 2027 S. Main St., Akron, OH.

Why Good Roots?

We chose Good Roots because we believe the food we eat should be good for us, taste good, and do good for the community. Everything Good Roots produces will be 100% plant-based and 100% delicious, with nutrient-dense and locally sourced fresh and healthy ingredients.

The food and restaurant industry is evolving quickly to provide easy online ordering and convenient delivery options for customers. We are tapping into that model to keep our business sustainable and connect with customers in a new way.

This change may seem drastic, but we remain rooted in our core purpose and 20-year commitment to our customer’s health, well-being, and tastebuds.
