Black Family-Owned Vegan Restaurant, Green Love Kitchen, Celebrates Grand Reopening in Atlanta Area

Popular Lithonia Vegan Restaurant Returns With New Menu, Music, and More

Founders of Green Love Kitchen

Owners Jhavaun Green and Marie-Maudelyne Green with their children

Atlanta, GA — On April 6th, Green Love Kitchen, the sole vegan restaurant in Lithonia, Georgia (a suburb of Atlanta), will host a grand affair for foodies, vegans, vegetarians, or those looking for a great meal and a fun time. The special event will feature an all-new menu of tasty vegan dishes and a line-up of entertainment and guests from the community. While the festivities run from noon until 8 pm, musical performances by Official Grey Music and Mama Sol are slated to kick off at 3 pm.

“We are so excited to reopen our doors and celebrate with our customers, family and friends,” said Green Love Kitchen Owner Marie-Maudelyne Green. She co-owns the restaurant with her husband, Jhavaun Green. “Attendees will also get a unique farm-to-table experience. We partner with several local African American farms to ensure we offer the freshest produce. At the grand opening event, people will be able to meet and mingle with the farmers who grow the foods they enjoy at Green Love Kitchen.”

Fans have been awaiting the return of their favorite spot to get mouthwatering vegan macaroni and cheese and the award-winning Thai Kale Wrap. Now they will get to savor several new items on the enhanced menu.

“When we first moved to metro-Atlanta, it was impossible to find vegan restaurants outside of the perimeter. If you wanted a variety of healthy, plant-based and delicious foods, you had to drive 30 or 45 minutes. We were practically in a food desert,” said Green.

Her experience with the lack of vegan options spurred an idea. Inspired by the opportunity to create something that would not only help her family but introduce many others to healthier eating habits, Green began her entrepreneurship journey. While she knew how to prepare vegan dishes, she furthered her expertise by attending Le Cordon Bleu’s culinary college. She started with a vegan catering company, and eventually opened Green Love Kitchen in 2015, steadily growing its customer base.

“We saw that there was an incredible demand. Eating vegan isn’t a fad or trend,” added Green. “It was so important to us that people had access to the best vegan and vegetarian food, no matter their zip code.”

With an eye on quality, convenience and customer service in a family-like atmosphere, the Greens have gone beyond a menu; they’ve created a movement. Boasting hundreds of 5-star reviews and a loyal fanbase, Green Love Kitchen offers patrons not only food, but a sense of community.

Located at 6986 Main St. in Lithonia, Georgia, Green Love Kitchen is open Monday – Friday, 10am to 8pm. For more information, visit www.greenlovekitchen.com. To get an inside look at events and happenings, connect with them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
