The Groove opened Sept. 17, though Groovy Eats Meal Prep has been in operation for about a year.
The family-owned business is run by Kristin, Halea and Blake Williams to provide something they do not think is very present in the San Marcos community.
"[Halea] was always on the go, really looking for something that she could grab [that] wouldn't be fast food and just be a little bit of a healthier choice," Kristin said. "That was our mission—to create some kind of cool vibe for the community to come in and feel good, because you're eating good and you've got the good vibes around you."
The Groove menu features breakfast and lunch items, such as steak n' eggs Benedict, breakfast tacos, a chicken pesto sandwich and Kristin's favorite, the Philly cheesesteak. The Groove also serves meal replacement shakes packed with protein and meal-prepped food that can be bought and is made to order.
