Chris Goode, the owner and CEO of Ruby Jean’s Juicery, is playing a major role in redefining Troost Avenue.
Ruby Jean’s Juicery is a black-owned business that is successfully expanding across the city. On Saturday, Nov. 11, Goode officially opened a kitchen and juice bar on 30th and Troost.
On the day of the grand opening, locals surrounded the building to show support.
Goode is investing positivity and healthy food options into a much-needed part of Kansas City. Although I’m sure being a young black entrepreneur has its challenges, Goode has the Kansas City community on his side.
“Challenges are constant as an entrepreneur. Being creative with limited resources is one of the most challenging aspects of what we’ve done,” Goode said.
“Unfortunately when it comes to eating bad food, our community has a long tradition set of eating poorly,” Goode said. “To help climb that mountain we plan on holding free health chats from time-to-time with special guests to help encourage and inform those who attend.”
There is nothing like Ruby Jean’s Juicery on the East of Troost!
