Happy Birthday HomeGrown! On May 24th, 2017, we opened our first HomeGrown in West Wichita, KS. Ten restaurants and five states later we continue to make great food while Cultivating Kindness all across the country. The vision of our founders, Lauren & @[Jon Rolph](urn:li:person:Na1fRW0a_r), was to build a store that would be more than a daytime eatery. It is a deeply rooted philosophy to break bread together around a passion for building community with generosity, servant leadership and a shared love for culinary creativity. We believe that if we help each other start the day right, we will also awaken a contagious chain of positive acts that cultivate kindness throughout the community. We hope you will celebrate with us by sharing a little kindness today \(and maybe a Pop’d Heart\)! HBD HomeGrown!
