our story

Roots is an independent, family-operated organic juice bar and café located in the heart of downtown Valparaiso, Indiana. Inspired by her own transformative health experience, Roots was founded by Diane Mattingly in 2012 with the help of her family.  Together they shared the benefits of healthy, whole-eating with their community. After a launching successfully and attracting a loyal following, Diane sold the business to her hand-picked successors, Carrie and Bill Durnell in 2016.  The Durnell's continue to honor Diane's legacy and position the business for its next chapter of growth and prosperity.
