Owner, Johna McColl had struggled with food sensitivities her whole life. After changing her lifestyle to become vegan and gluten free she found that going out to restaurants was extremely difficult and menu options were limited. After creating her very own vegan, gluten-free catering company, she decided to open Root 8 to accommodate people who have chosen this lifestyle, whether it be for health changes, allergies, sensitivities or better digestion.
