About Us

We are Aaron and Donna Diehl, owners of Roadhouse Roots and the proud parents of three wonderful children: Cooper--24, Olivia--22, and Chase—17. Cooper had expressed to us that he had wanted to own a business. After some thought we realized that with Cooper’s exuberant and out-going personality combined with his flair for creative short-order concoctions, he might be a natural fit for food truck ownership. Then a few years later we learned that friends had also opened their own successful food trucks so we finally took the leap of faith. We jumped in with the idea in mind that our children would not only gain practical business knowledge and learn the value of self-employment, but also other important life lessons. Our hope is that in the future our kids will take over the business.
