This is our fourth week featuring one local, Rhode Island eatery/juicery, in this case, each week. We will share the background of each and a little bit about the owners and operators. Most importantly, we will be sharing a link to purchase their gift cards. If you are able to support these small local businesses at this time, we encourage you to purchase their gift cards online, support their fundraisers and/or order takeout or delivery.
This is a particularly difficult time for both the tourism and restaurant industry, we are seeing many of our restaurant partners and friends in these industries struggle to keep their businesses. By featuring one local eatery each week, we hope to support and uplift some of our partners and friends. No matter where you live, local eateries bring so much vibrancy to our communities.
Welcome to Fully Rooted
Neighborhoods: Providence and Pawtucket
Fully Rooted’s mission is to share their functional, plant-based beverages with the community. Owners Amanda Repose, Angelo Mollis and Ben Aalvik started Fully Rooted in 2013 after experiencing health benefits from juicing. Fully Rooted began as an at-home production, with the team making juices in their kitchens and selling them at farmers markets’ in North Kingstown. As they grew, they began selling at more markets. Working at farmers’ markets helped them develop strong relationships with local farmers. Fully Rooted sources as much produce as possible from New England-based farmers.
With success came growth. The Fully Rooted team bought a professional cold-press juicer, rented commercial space and also started making Kombucha. Since their raw cold pressed juices are fresh and unpasteurized, their shelf life is short. Not to worry, though – the team started delivering their fresh juices and health shots to homes throughout Rhode Island.
Next came their production space and juice bar in Lorraine Mills, their Pawtucket location. At Lorraine Mills, they started making and selling kombucha, which has a longer shelf life. They opened their downtown juice bar in Providence in 2019 that includes kombucha and juice on tap, offering tastings of healthy flavors like Lavender Rose Hip, Love Elixir or Ginger Reishi which can be purchased in 16 oz. or a 32 oz. growler. They have been a part of our Downcity Providence food tour ever since!
During the Coronavirus, Fully Rooted closed their brick-and-mortar operations, but has continued their weekly juice deliveries. They are offering free home delivery in Rhode Island and Massachusetts every Wednesday and Friday.
