Black Restaurant Feature: Ruby Jean’s is the Healthy Soul Food We Needed But Didn’t Know We Wanted

“Ruby Jean’s Juicery was created with a passion for health and longevity of life in mind. There is life in fruits and vegetables and that same life and passion are cornerstones of the Ruby Jean’s brand. We strive to create truly healthy beverages and snacks in a relaxing, hip and one of a kind environment, which is welcoming and all-inclusive to our customers.”

“Ruby Jean is the late grandmother of founder and CEO, Chris Goode. She was born in Vian, Oklahoma, March 7, 1938, to Mable Holmes and Willie Drew. She was raised on a soul food diet and lived on very meager means, never in her life learning how to drive a car. She eventually moved to Kansas City, MO in the late 50’s with several other family members for a change of life, most notably inspired by her Aunt Rosa Lee Holmes who wed Ruby Jean’s uncle.”
