The local vegan food truck known for their homemade cinnamon rolls and gluten-free cupcakes
has been around for a while now, but only recently has the business opened a storefront.

Gourmet Goody Box owners Jessica and John Mack opened their restaurant at 2055 Eisenhower Parkway in early May.

The idea for Gourmet Goody Box came from Jessica Mack’s motivation to create a healthier lifestyle for herself and family. The restaurant’s menu is completely vegan.

“Now it has been seven years since we’ve been vegan. We realized that they didn’t really have that here so we wanted to do that for the Macon area,” Jessica Mack said.

With motivation and support from family, the Macks chose to go into business and run a food truck.

“After doing our research, from there we got the food trailer, got it emptied and my hubby built it from the ground up,” Jessica Mack said.

The couple saw their food truck business growing and prospering and wanted to expand it.

“The place that we are at now is a commercial kitchen and it just so happens to have a foyer area,” Jessica Mack said. “So we decided to open a restaurant so that we can serve people from more than just a food truck.”

Mack’s buffalo chicken nuggets and burgers are two of the creations that keep customers coming back to the restaurant time and time again.

“Gourmet Goody Box is amazing,” customer Ashanti Griggs said. “It’s really hard to find quality food that still stays within a strict diet especially when you’re a vegetarian.”

If you are interested in trying Gourmet Goody Box for yourself, the restaurant is open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and on Fridays from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The restaurant serves brunch on Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
