(Left to Right: Ashley Frahm, Roy Hernandez & Kyla Gibson. Owners of Rooted Reef Kava Bar)
We opened the Rooted Reef for the same reason many others open Kava Bars, we love the community and the product! We were all a part of the kava community for many years and loved the strong friendships, intellectual conversations and change of lifestyle that came with it. It was in the summer of 2020 that 3 Florida natives went on a trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains and began to dream of one day owning a Kava Bar there.
