Our Story

root, an all vegan restaurant and bar based in Lancaster, PA, opened in mid-December 2015. The owner Rob Garpstas, a bar and restaurant owner since 1999, became vegan in 2011. He was inspired by his youngest daughter's interest in animal activism. Rob and his family became vegan for health and animal rights reasons after Rob’s father was diagnosed with cancer.

When realizing the health and environmental benefits of a plant based lifestyle he wanted to create a space where he could share his knowledge and passion. His vision for root was to create a rotating menu designed to provide patrons with their favorite foods using seasonal, locally sourced, produce.
