How it All Began
Owner Jennifer Ryan had a vision. She wanted to be able to eat food that was good and good for her but with the convenience factor added. She said in Alabama, during the year 2019, that was hard to find. Jennifer grew up in California, where eating fresh, pure, and whole foods were the only thing she knew. Therefore, she had a real culture shock when she moved to the state that was king of fried and fast food. Jennifer and her husband, Mike, fell in love with the city of Birmingham and the people in it, but it was lacking food she liked. Jennifer decided to fill the gap herself, knowing that there had to be more people out there like her. And there you have it – Blueroot was born!

Not to mention, everything on the menu is completely customizable. So, if you’re not a fan of tomatoes, you don’t have to be. The menu items give you a slight taste of what California food was like for owner, Jennifer Ryan. She incorporated a “California Cobb Salad” and a “Santa Fe Bowl” to bring that taste of home to Birmingham.
