Ruby Jean’s and its new concept are a great fit for Troost, said Sheryl Vickers, owner of Select Sites and who worked with Goode to bring the popular business to a street corner across from the Wonder lofts complex.
“I feel really good about this and I’m proud of Chris,” she said. “Juice on Troost is an amazing step in the right direction to give the neighborhood options rather than having to leave the area to spend that money.”
Saturday’s grand opening was the largest Councilman Taylor had seen for a small business in Kansas City, Taylor said. About an hour after the event began, a line of customers continued to form outside, stretching to the intersection of 30th and Troost. (Goode reported Sunday morning on social media that Ruby Jean’s had served 500 people in five hours Saturday.)
